While you can't directly connect a PlayStation 5 (PS5) controller to an iPhone through Bluetooth like you would with a PS4 controller, there are other ways to use your PS5 controller for mobile gaming on your iPhone:

Remote Play App (iPhone with PS5 in same Wi-Fi network):

  1. Download the PlayStation App on your iPhone from the App Store.

  2. On your PS5, navigate to Settings > System > Remote Play.

  3. Enable Enable Remote Play and Turn on PS Remote Play.

  4. Back on your iPhone, open the PlayStation App and sign in to your PlayStation Network account.

  5. Tap on Remote Play and select your PS5 from the list of devices.

  6. The iPhone screen will display your PS5 and you can use the on-screen virtual controls to play games. Alternatively, you can pair a compatible Bluetooth controller with your iPhone for a more traditional gaming experience.

Third-party mobile game controllers:

There are various third-party mobile game controllers available that connect directly to your iPhone via Bluetooth. These controllers may have layouts similar to the PS5 controller, allowing a more familiar feel for gaming.

Things to Consider:

  • Game compatibility:┬áNot all mobile games support external controllers. Check the game's description in the App Store to see if it supports controllers.
  • Input lag:┬áThere might be a slight delay between your button presses on the controller and the response on the iPhone screen due to the Bluetooth connection.

While a direct Bluetooth connection isn't possible, using the Remote Play app or opting for a third-party mobile game controller can give you more control options for your iPhone gaming experience.
