Apple iOS

Connect your favorite supported PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo controllers to a Cronus Zen and a PlayStation 5, using the official Sony PS REMOTE PLAY for Apple iOS.

👉 Before you get started, please review the PS REMOTE PLAY CHECKLIST and apply the PS5 CONSOLE SETTINGS.


Please read this important PS REMOTE PLAY CHECKLIST before setting up your PS5:

  • Make sure the device you are running PS REMOTE PLAY on is on the same network as your PS5 (preferably wired).
  • Download Astro's Playroom. It's free and great for testing all DUALSENSE controller functions.
  • Do not have any PlayStation controllers paired by Bluetooth to your PS5 (delete them).
  • There may be no DUALSENSE Adaptive Trigger or rumble support in some PS5 games.
  • Do not have any scripts or GamePacks enabled while setting up your controller.

Instructions on how to setup PS Remote Play official software with your iOS device and Cronus Zen.

Important: There are currently a known issue when connecting some DualSense controllers to the A1 USB port. Either no output or giving an E3002 error,. Please report to the #ps-remote channel if you have this issue, or if it's working great for you. Remember A1 - not A2, A3 or Bluetooth. See the Known Issues page for more information.
