Sony's DualSense controller now works with Apple devices for PS5 remote play

You'll be able to use a DualSense controller to play PS5 games on Apple devices after you upgrade to the latest version of the PS Remote Play app for iOS. Sony has rolled out the ability for iPhones running iOS14.5 and iPads running iPadOS 14.5, giving you the the option to use a DualSense instead of an older DualShock controller if you want to. Even if you do choose to use the newer controller, though, you won't be getting the full experience on remote play. 

According to The Verge and several PS5 players on Reddit, you'll be able to enjoy games with adaptive triggers as they're supposed to be played on an iOS device. The presence of haptics, however, can be pretty random. It seems to support basic rumbling haptic feedback, but not more advanced haptics for titles like Control. Seeing as tactile feedback can elevate the gameplay experience, its absence could make certain games less enjoyable than they would be with the feature. In addition, The Verge says DualSense's built-in microphone, headphone jack and speakers also won't work on remote play.

Without proper haptic feedback and mic/speaker support, switching from a DualShock to a DualSense for won't make a lot of difference. Still, you now at least have the option to use the newer controller with your iPhones and iPads, and Sony can still upgrade the app to make sure DualSense's features are properly supported in the future.
