One of the most underrated aspects of the PlayStation 4 is its remote play feature. As long as you have a PlayStation Vita, you can stream PS4 titles to this portable device. You thus can play your favorite titles on the go so long as there is a strong internet connection.

The Vita used to be the only device that allowed users to take advantage of this remote play feature. Well, thanks to a recent update on the PS4, users will have more options to take full advantage of remote play. More specifically, any iOS device will now support this feature.

This is amazing news if you have a PlayStation 4. There are times when you don’t want to stay in the same room that your console is set up in. For example, you may want to game in bed right before hitting the sack. Thanks to this latest update, you can now do just that.

All you have to do is download the PS4 remote app via the iOS marketplace. Once it’s activated and your PS4 is on, you can connect instantly. However, you will need a fairly decent internet connection to prevent lagging issues. If you don’t, you’ll see a warning symbol that indicates you need to strengthen the connection. If nothing is done, remote play will shut off and gameplay will resume on the console.

All in all, this is a great update that was unveiled today. Many people don’t feel the need to purchase a Vita just to take advantage of remote play. You can’t really blame them either. The Vita is not a very popular system, although it does have its shining moments.

Now, you can play your favorite PS4 titles on any iOS device. You can play AAA games on your smartphone or experience action-horror on an iPad. The possibilities are endless.

So, what’s the main selling point of remote play? Well, it has many applications. One that particularly stands out is the ability to play PS4 games on a portable device while someone else uses the TV for other applications. Everyone in the family can complete their preferred entertainment activities without having to settle.

Also, being able to play PS4 games in virtually any part of the house is appealing. You can game in bed, outside near the patio, or even in the bathroom when you’re enjoying some personal time. PlayStation really hit it out of the park with this recent update.
