Next up grab your DualShock controller and put it in pairing mode. To do this hold down the PS and sharing buttons for 3 seconds or until the light starts flashing on the top. The DualShock controller should show up under other devices select it with your AppleTV remote. Once you see your Controller Connected popup you should be good to go.

Lets connect the DualShock to your iPad or iPhone. Go into Settings > BlueTooth. And just toggle on the BlueTooth switch. Again put your controller in Pairing mode. And tap your controller to connect it.

Apple TV Games

Awesome lets go test out some games. On Apple TV just go into Apple Arcade and sign in with your Apple ID. Its free for the first month. The game I have played most is one called OceanHorn2. The games on Apple Arcade are pretty basic at the moment so don’t expect to the blown away. But they are ok for a bit of fun. OceanHorn2 is a Adventure Role Play game.

Lets check out some games on the iPad or iPhone. Not all iOS games will work with the DualShock controller. But when you load a game that does it should tell you at the bottom of the screen.

The game I am playing now is called real racing 3. In real racing 3 you can change your views in the car and also look behind you. This iPhone 11 pro does a good job with the sound and games can be quite fun on a bigger iPad screen. If racing is not your thing there is loads of other games like fortnight and actually having a controller will give you some advantage over other mobile players as the controller is much easier to use. Sonic Racing game on Apple TV is also a bit of fun.
