Before proceeding further, do note that you will need to be running iOS 14.5 or a newer version of the operating system on your phone.

Step 1: Put the DualSense Controller in pairing mode by simultaneously holding the PlayStation logo button and the Create button.

If you are unaware, the Create button is just above the D-Pad on the left side and the PlayStation logo key sits between the two analog sticks.

Once the controller is in pairing mode, the lights around the device’s touchpad will turn blue and blink twice rapidly before going dark and blinking twice again.

Step 2: Now, open the Settings app on your iPhone and go to the “Bluetooth” section.
