Ios 13 Will Turn Iphones Into A Mobile Ps4 Console

iOS 13 Will Turn iPhones Into A Mobile PS4 Console

With the announcement of iOS 13, it was revealed that Apple would finally be bringing support for controllers from the likes of Sony and its DualShock 4 controller used for the PS4 console. However, what some might not have realized and as reported by MacRumors, it seems that this has a bigger implication than we think.

This is because Sony has an app called the Remote Play app that they launched back in March. For those who are unfamiliar with the app, basically what it does is that it lets you stream games from your PS4 to your iPhone over WiFi. This essentially turns your iPhone into a mobile gaming console, but unfortunately, the on-screen controls and also third-party controllers were a less than stellar experience.

Developer Attempts To Turn The Nintendo Switch Into An Android Tablet

Ahead of the Nintendo Switch’s launch, there was speculation that the console won’t be a particularly power console compared to the likes of the PS4 or Xbox One. It was also speculated that it might actually be built based on the NVIDIA SHIELD gaming tablet. Whether or not those rumors are true is unclear, but it seems that one developer is trying to turn the console into an Android tablet.

This is thanks to the work by developer ByLaws who seems to be working on transforming the Switch into a full-fledged Android tablet. Given that the Switch features a touchscreen and how it runs on the NVIDIA Tegra X1 SoC, it doesn’t seem completely out of the question. Unfortunately it seems that for now, ByLaws hasn’t progressed too far apart from the console booting up while showing the Android logo.
