Apple's Mac computers have for long been known as gaming companions. With Steam now on Mac, the experience is bound to get more intuitive for gamers who prefer gaming on a Mac instead of on a Windows PC.

This means that it is perfectly possible for users to connect a PS4 controller for playing games within a Mac. Games such as Batman: Arkham City, Borderlands 2 and more can be check out on a Mac, by connecting a PS4 controller. A PS4 controller can be interfaced to a Mac as given in the steps below:
