How to pair your PS4 controller with your Apple devices

Here’s how to pair your PS4 controller with your Apple device, now that Apple TVs, iPhones, iPads, and Macs natively support PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controllers.

Make sure you’re running the latest operating system

To use an PS4 controller, your Apple device needs to be running at least one of the operating systems released fall 2019 — iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13, and macOS Catalina (which is version 10.15).

You can check the software version that you have installed on your iPad and iPhone by tapping Settings > About and looking for the Software Version row. On Apple TV, that information lives in Settings > System > Software Updates. On macOS, that’s in System Preferences > Software Update.

  1. Open System Preferences and click on Bluetooth. Make sure that Bluetooth is on in the menu that loads.
  2. On your PS4 controller, hold down the PlayStation button and the Share button (that’s the one to the left of the touchpad) at the same time for a few seconds until the light on the back of the controller starts blinking quickly. That puts it into paring mode.
  3. A few seconds later, you’ll see “DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller” at the bottom of the Devices section of the window.
  4. Click on the Connect button next to “DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller” to pair your controller with your Mac.
