PCSX4 emulator for iOS
PCSX4 is an virtualization-based PS4 emulator and debugger project written in C# for iOS compatible with iPhone and iPad devices.
It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS4 exclusives on high-end machines.
Remember that graphics quality on mobile phones can vary from device to device since some smartphones have more powerful hardware specs than others.
And PCSX4 has an automatic-adapting feature, so it will set the best possible quality your particular iPhone or iPad can handle, including FPS rate too.
PCSX4 will recompile all the shaders, untiling all the textures and upload all the buffers every frame, making it less efficient.
Besides, there are still some problems in the game pad emulation.
You should not run pirated games, PCSX4 is made in such a way that game cache-image (GCI) is encrypted with a 256-bit header with .pdix hash which is linked to your PS4 account so dumped images are useless.
To avoid illegal activities and misuse of source code, PCSX4 is made semi open-source.
All components & plugins of PCSX4 is open source except the core executable.
