How to play with the PlayStation controller on iPhone
The first thing you will have to do is update your phone to the latest version available right now, since iOS 13 has incorporated support for the PlayStation and Xbox controls. So, you should check the system settings to verify that you have at least the version of iOS 13 installed. If your device is not compatible with iOS 13 we must inform you that you will not be able to connect the controls, so the rest of the steps will not take effect in your case.
With the version already checked, we will place the controls in pairing mode to be able to link them with the phone, although to connect the Xbox One controller you must keep in mind that it will have to be the version with Bluetooth, launched from the Xbox One S. These are the steps you must follow to get it:
In the case of Dualshock 4, we will have to press the playstation button and the Share button at the same time, and we will keep them pressed until the status light starts to flash.
Xbox One controller
Press the guide button or Xbox button to turn on the control, and then press and hold the match button which is next to the micro USB port. The Xbox logo light will start to flash quickly.
With the controls already in pairing mode, we will only have to go to the System settings of the iPhone, enter the section Bluetooth and identify the command that is waiting to be linked. Select the command you want to pair and … ready! Now you can play games without touching the screen.
