How to Pair a Sony PS4 Dualshock Controller with an iPad or iPhone

In this video we look at how you can connect a PlayStation 4 Dualshock controller to either an iPad or iPhone. We then demonstrate how to remove the Bluetooth connection between your iOS device and a Dual Shock controller. Finally, we show you how to reconnect the Dual Shock controller back to a Play Station 4.

Quick reference notes:

  • Press and hold down both the PS and Share buttons on your Dualshock controller
  • When the light bar on the front of the controller rapidly flashes the controller will be in pair mode
  • From within your iOS device choose Settings – Bluetooth
  • Select your Dualshock controller from the list of devices.

Notes: Please note, that you will need to be running iOS 13 or above. Also a Dualshock 4 controller will only work with iOS games that have been specifically designed to work with external controllers.
