Can I use a PS4 controller for Infinite Flight

Well I have a Tab S6 so I just connect it using an adapter and charging wire but I do believe Bluetooth works as well… Don’t quote me though…

Oh ok. I’m gonna find out how to connect it up to an iPhone X. But thanks so much!

Not a problem! Any YouTube Tutorial should do if you just search up how to connect an PS4 controller to an iPhone… After that you simply just click connect device in the IF app and you are good to go!

Just hold the PS4 and share buttons down while the controller is off. The light should start flashing white, the controller name should also appear in your Bluetooth menu allowing you to connect it.

No worries! If you’re doing it on the PS4 controller make sure you forget it on your iOS device, it won’t connect to the console unless you’ve done this.

It isn’t too hard to connect, but the control sucks for me because the throttle key is the same as the rudder key

I just connect my xbox controller through bluetooth but it’s not the best in the world to fly with so I stick to using my phone

WAIT WHAT? I didn’t know that! I thought you could just use an adapter to connect it to your phone/iPad/android

Well, in theory you can connect a peripheral such as a Thrustmaster via your Android’s charging port. (I say in theory because I’ve never owned an Android)

Apple, on the other hand, is far more restrictive with this kind of stuff. To make a peripheral other than a Bluetooth controller work (such as a Thrustmaster), you need to plug it into a PC running a joystick API service such as LiveFlight Connect or MapConnect while having both the Apple device and the PC on the same network. Oh, and don’t forget, the API option in settings in Infinite Flight needs to be on for this to work.


As for alternatives to traditional peripherals, there’s an app on the App Store (sorry Android fellas) called “Fly-By-Wire” that enables you to use your phone… as a joystick. You’d need two Apple devices for this to work, and you also need the API option to be on.
