PS4 controller on iPhone is amazing and stupid easy to setup.

Couldn’t pass this one mission in GTA San Andreas for about a year!!! Did it with the controller and completed in one try. This is going to have a lot more impact to Iphone/iPad gaming than anyone realizes yet.

I was meh on arcade, now I’m very interested

That is awesome! I didnt know about Onecast.
I know. I only discovered it the other day. It’s really awesome. And super easy to setup. Took like 5 mins and I had complete control of my Xbox from anywhere in house on the iPad. It’s super cool and easy. It is 11.99 but 12 bucks for a product that does exactly what it says it will do is ok with me.

Now, I know it says PS4 controller support. Has anyone tried a PS3 controller and does it work? If not no big deal

Does this have to be a certain build Xbox one controller?

I have an original Xbox one release controller and it can’t be seen by the Apple TV but I have another one that is newer (got it 2-3 years ago) and Apple TV sees it immediately.

Was hoping to use the old on on the ATV :mad:



....just saw only “s” and forward have Bluetooth so makes sense why my old one doesn’t work now

Does San Andreas work okay on iOS13? 13 is running okay on my 12.9” and I’m long overdue a replay of SA, whilst it isn’t a game that I want to play at home where I’ve got myriad newer games.

For those who are streaming Xbox/PS4 - How is the quality? Everytime I try to stream Xbox on my PC its terrible. I have (100 down 20 up speeds) Xbox 1X/PS4 Pro hardwired.

Seems to be good for me. I have even used it out of the house, took my iPad to a friends house and used their WiFi and was able to access and play my PS4 just fine.

I never streamed from outside my house but it was over my wifi on both the xbox and iPad and I thought the quality was great.

Just played a few missions, works perfectly. Haven’t seen any issues yet while playing on the XR

I have been noticing a few bugs here and there that have popped up in ios13 overall. It’s still risky to put on this beta, wait for beta 3

So you are using the PS4 remote play app on the iPad and can control the game using a PS4 controller? No workarounds?

If the part by the xbox button is glossy and a “separate piece” than the rest of the controller, then it’s a first gen controller and doesn’t include Bluetooth support, if it’s matte and part of the rest of the controller that you grip, then it’s the newer controller and it does include Bluetooth.

I've been loving controller support. I've used it for Dead Trigger 2 and GTA so far and it works perfectly. Is there noticeable latency with Onecast?

To me this was one of the most exciting announcements from the keynote. Total game changer.

I never played GTA Chinatown and bought it for my iPad. I just couldn't get used to the touch controls and abandoned it. Now it will be so much easier to play games like that *AND* I can remote play from my PS4.

I have seen moments of lag infrequently. Overall its good though. I have only played Mortal Combat 11 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Other than the moments I mentioned earlier nothing hindered my playing in anyway that was noticeable to me.
