RPCS4 emulator for iOS


RPCS4 is an virtualization-based PS4 emulator and debugger project written in C# for smartphone compatible with iOS (iPhone and iPad devices).

It’s a private project being worked on by one of the original developers of RPCS3 “DH”.

This PS4 emulator should in particular not be confused with PCSX4.

DH, RPCS3’s founder, has given permission to share this quick progress update of his Play Station 4 emulator.

For full disclosure, the RPCS4 emulator is being worked on by DH, who worked on RPCS3 until 2016 and then left to start PlayStation 4 research, there is no overlap from the RPCS3 Team, which will continue to work on RPCS3.

This Play Station 4 emulator uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX 12 as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS4 exclusives on high-end machines with some glitches as it is still in beta.

There will be frequent releases which you can grab from the download section.

This is a parallel project to RPCS3, and nobody from the current RPCS3 team is directly involved (in other words, this project does not impact RPCS3 development).

You should not run pirated games, RPCS4 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, this emulator is made semi open-source.

All components & plugins of this application is open source except the core executable.


This app is currently in Alpha, so more support is being added in each update.

  • Device: iPhone X+ (or equivalent iPad)
  • RAM: N.D.
  • OS: iOS 11 (or above)
  • Storage: 64 MB+

RPCS4 is a promising PS4 emulator despite its work-in-progress status.

An auto updater is included in the build package.

This is currently one of the best bets at a long term PS4 emulator solution.
