How to Adjust VR Settings on Your iPhone

Share This:

Are you looking to get the most out of your iPhone and its virtual reality (VR) capabilities? If so, you’ll need to take a few moments to set up the VR settings on your device. Here, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

Step 1: Open VR Settings
The first step is to open the VR settings on your phone. To do this, go into the Daydream app and then tap the Menu icon in the top left corner of your screen. From there, select “Settings” and then “VR Settings”.

Step 2: Pair a New Daydream Controller
Once you have opened up your VR settings, you will want to pair a new Daydream controller with your phone. To do this, tap “Controller” in the settings menu and then select “Pair new controller”. Follow the instructions provided on the screen for pairing your device with your new controller.

Step 3: Switch Between Right & Left Handed Controller Layout
Next, you will want to switch between right-handed and left-handed controller layouts if necessary. To do this, simply go back into the Controller section of VR settings and select whichever layout suits you best.

Step 4: Enable Motion Tracking & Room Scale Tracking
In order to fully use all of the features of virtual reality with an iPhone, it is important that motion tracking and room-scale tracking are enabled within the device’s settings menu. To do this, go back into “Settings” and select “Motion Tracking” or “Room Scale Tracking” depending on what type of setting you are looking for.

Step 5: Set Up Your Environment For Room Scale Tracking
If you chose to enable room-scale tracking in Step 4 above, it is important that you set up your environment correctly before using any VR applications or games with motion control enabled. This means ensuring that furniture or obstacles are not blocking any movement paths around your physical space – as these can cause issues when using virtual reality apps or games with motion control enabled within them.

Step 6: Adjust Visual Quality Settings
Finally, if needed it is possible to adjust visual quality settings within Daydream’s options menu in order for virtual reality apps or games to look as good as possible when running on an iPhone device. This can be done by going into “Settings” again and selecting either “High Quality” or “Low Quality” depending on what type of performance balance is desired from each specific application or game being used with an iPhone’s VR headset accessory attached to it at any time during usage sessions – such as Google Cardboard or similar devices used for experiencing virtual reality content via smartphones today!

Activating VR Mode on an iPhone

To turn on VR mode on your iPhone, you will need to download a VR app from the App Store. Once downloaded, open the app and select the “Enable VR Mode” option. This will enable the phone’s gyroscope so it can respond to movements. You may also need to toggle the orientation lock off in order for this feature to work properly. Once you have enabled VR mode, place your phone inside the headset and adjust it until it is secure and comfortable. Now, you are ready to start your virtual reality experience!

Changing VR Settings on a Mobile Device

To change your VR settings on your phone, open the Daydream app and tap the ‘Menu’ icon in the top left corner. Then, tap ‘Settings’ and select ‘VR Settings’. Here you can pair a new Daydream controller, switch between right- and left-handed controller layouts, change your audio output settings, and more. To pair a new controller, tap ‘Controller’ then select ‘Pair New Controller’, then follow the on-screen steps to complete the process.

Making Your Phone Screen VR Ready

In order to make your phone screen VR-ready, you will need to install a Virtual Reality app. There are many apps available for free download in the App Store or Google Play Store. Once the app is installed, open it and you will see two screens. Move your smartphone to the left/right and forward/back or any direction to check if your phone’s screen is moving – this indicates that your phone supports Virtual Reality. If not, you may need to purchase a separate headset designed specifically for Virtual Reality use. The headset should connect to the phone via Bluetooth or USB cable and allow you to experience virtual reality in an immersive way.

Does the iPhone 11 Support Virtual Reality?

Yes, the DESTEK V5 VR Headset with Controller is compatible with iPhone 11. It features a 110°FOV HD Anti-Blue Lens and is designed to fit phones with a screen size between 4.7″ – 6.8″, making it an ideal choice for iPhone 11 users who want to explore virtual reality. The headset also works with Android phones, allowing users to enjoy immersive experiences on both platforms.

Compatibility of Safari with Virtual Reality

At this time, Safari is not VR-compatible. While the beta of iOS 15.4 contains several hidden clues that suggest support for AR and VR headsets in Safari, this feature has yet to be officially announced or implemented. Apple has not released any information regarding the development of such a feature and as such, it is not currently available.

Why VR Does Not Work on My Phone

VR videos may not work on your phone if it does not have a Gyroscope sensor. A Gyroscope is a device used for measuring orientation and angular velocity that helps the phone detect movement. If your Android phone does not have a Gyroscope, it will not be able to accurately track the user’s movements when using VR apps and videos. You can check if your device has a Gyro sensor or not by using apps like Google Cardboard and VR Checker. If your Android phone does have a Gyroscope but still the 360-degree videos are not working, you may need to calibrate the sensor to get it working properly.

Using Virtual Reality with Any App

To use VR on any app, you’ll need a compatible headset and an app that supports VR. First, download the app from either the Google Play store or the App Store. Once downloaded, open the app and place your phone in the headset. Make sure to align the screen so that it is centered in the headset. Once it is aligned, close the headset and place it on your head. Finally, adjust the fit and focus of the headset to ensure that you get the best experience possible while using VR.


Overall, the iPhone’s Daydream VR settings are a great way for users to get the most out of their virtual reality experience. With an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, users can customize their settings to suit their individual needs. Users can easily switch between right and left-handed controller layouts and pair new Daydream controllers with just a few taps. Furthermore, with most VR apps available on any iPhone model from the 5 up to the X, users can enjoy a wide variety of immersive experiences no matter their device. With these features and more, the iPhone’s Daydream VR settings are sure to help you get the most out of your virtual reality experience.
