Make sure you have the most recent system update, then plug the PS4 controller into the USB port. Go into Accessories>Manage Bluetooth devices, then you should scan for new devices. Unplug the controller, then hold down share and the “PS” buttons. You should see the new controller there. Plug the controller in again (you may be able to do this without plugging in) and choose “wireless controller.” Unplug it one last time.
However, even after you do this, be aware that the PS4 controller is not going to work perfectly. It’s not going to work with all games, and it will not support the rumble feature or the six-axis feature, so that mean no thatgamecompany games that use motion control. Also, it doesn't have a "start" button, which can be a problem with a lot of games.
