Backbone, PlayStation release iPhone-compatible Backbone One-PlayStation Edition

Backbone One-PlayStation Edition

Backbone and PlayStation have teamed up to release the iPhone-compatible Backbone One-PlayStation Edition. The US$99 gaming accessory for the Apple smartphone is inspired by the design of the PS5 console’s DualSense wireless controller, all the way down to the transparent face buttons and its “floating” appearance.

If you have access to broadband internet, plug an iPhone into the Backbone One and instantly start playing your PS4 or PS5 games with the power of the PS Remote Play app—whether that’s out and about or even elsewhere in the home.  With the latest update for PS Remote Play, the controller locks your iPhone in landscape orientation for better viewing.

Backbone One also works with App Store games and other game streaming services that support controllers, including Genshin Impact, Fantasian, Call of Duty: Mobile, and more. Players can download the Backbone App for a customized PlayStation experience.

Inside the app, you’ll see various PlayStation integrations, such as custom glyphs representing the iconic PlayStation shapes and the ability to browse hundreds of PlayStation titles.Players will also find a dedicated row inside the Backbone App with new releases and updates from PlayStation. The Backbone One is powered by your iPhone device, so charging isn’t required.
