PlayStation 4 Firmware Update 6.50 now available

If you boot up your PS4 you'll be staring at an "update now" message and might be wondering what it entails: well, it's mostly about iOS remote play this week. Even though name change was one of the features in the beta test, this hasn't been confirmed in this new PS4 firmware update.

What do you need for PS4 Remote Play on iOS? Sony has finally brought an official Remote Play app to iPhone and iPad, giving gamers the ability to connect to their console and play nearly anywhere.

The best way to play PS4 games is with a controller, but of course, Apple won't let you connect a DualShock 4 controller to your iOS device.

Other than that, there's not much to see. Firmware 6.50 is mandatory, but at roughly 460MB, it's not going to take you long to download. Well, no more! Today, the PlayStation 4 gets its 6.50 firmware update, which finally opens the gates for iOS users. Hopefully the feature isn't too far away.

Australian radio station bans Michael Jackson songs following paedophilia allegations
"We're just merely trying to make sure that our radio stations are going to play the music that people want to hear". NZME , a rival broadcaster to MediaWorks, said it will also stop playing Jackson's music in light of the allegations.

Sadly, Sony hasn't made a DualShock controller for iPhones, so you're stuck with third-party products for now (unless, again, you go the unofficial route).

If your PS4 can not be found automatically, you will need to manually register the iOS device. That way you can play some of the latest console games on your handheld device. If you're looking to do the same for Android phones that are not Xperia, you won't be able to do it through the Google Play Store, oddly enough.

Sony hasn't provided an exhaustive list of every game which is compatible, simply stating that you can play "your favorite PS4 games". You can use (PS4 Remote Play) to connect your PS4 system from devices such as smartphones and tablets. This option is only available in specific countries and regions.
