RPCS3 Play Station 3 emulator for iOS
RPCS3 is a multi-platform open-source Sony PS3 emulator for iOS and debugger written in C# for Windows, MacOS and Android.
It was founded by programmers DH and Hykem. Initially hosted on Google Code the project was eventually migrated to GitHub later on in its development.
RPCS3’s first successful boots were primarily composed of small homebrew projects and hardware tests.
The PS3 emulator for iOS was later publicly released in June of 2020 and gained substantial attention from both the open-source community and PlayStation enthusiasts alike.
Today RPCS3 is primarily developed by its two lead developers; Nekotekina, kd-11 and backed by flourishing team of GitHub contributors.
The application is coded in C & C# languages with caching/recompilation method which achieves effect of emulating CPU of device you use and make it function like PS3’s one does.
In other words this makes your device (smartphone/PC) to act like a real PS3 console while running its games.
Shortly BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a log file (manual) of codes which tells your device how to run certain console games correctly and good news for you is that BIOS file is already built inside emulator so you don’t have to download it separately from web.
Check the list below for more information about requirements to run games smoothly with iOS devices.
In order to run the application correctly, it is necessary to meet the minimum requirements given in the table below.
|OS version||iOS 7.0 (or higher)|

It is still possible to install the app on devices not mentioned above, but we cannot guarantee its proper functioning.
We recommend backing up the device on which the app will be installed before performing any installation of third-party apps not from the official app Store.
There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the link below.
The last version implements the following new features:
•Alpha version (iPhone & iPad)
•Added experimental settings in the main memu (only for iOS 8.0+ devices)
•Improved graphic user interface in the settings menu
•Redesigned virtual game pad map
This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.
You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the IPA file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.
All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
