Troubleshooting Tips:

If you are facing any issues while connecting your Ps5 controller to your iPhone, here are a few troubleshooting tips:

  • Make sure that both your iPhone and the Ps5 controller are charged.
  • Restart both devices and try again.
  • If you are still experiencing issues, try resetting the network settings on your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

    Keep in mind that this will remove all saved Wi-Fi passwords on your device.
