I have a PS4 controller that I use on my iPad. It was working for 3 weeks, but now the light bar flashes blue and turns off when I try to turn it on. I don’t have a PS4 console. How can I fix this?

I had the following symptoms:
PS4 unused for 6+ months
When pressing the PS button on the DualShock 4, the LED would blink a number of times with a blue light, then stop blinking.
The controller would not connect to the PS4 if the PS4 was ON.
The controller would not connect to the PS4 even with a USB cable connecting the two.
None of the solutions found on the internet would help.
Solution: Charge the controller for 30+ minutes. After that everything was working again. Apparently the controller was out of juice, but had enough juice to blink the LED.
TL;DR: Try charging your controller first.
