Apple Rejects Steam Link App For iOS Devices

  • Apple Rejects Steam Link App For iOS Devices

In fact, there are a number of apps on the App Store that work similarly to Steam Link, like Remotr and R-Play, which can connect with a PS4 instead. The frustrating part is, Apple did approve the Steam Link app on the 7th of May, at which time, Valve publicly announced the release. Valve appealed the decision, but the appeal was denied, and it now appears that Steam Link will never come to iOS devices. On Wednesday, May 9th, Valve released news of the app.

Steam Link previously worked via a dedicated box that streamed games from a PC to a television.

Steam Link launched as a way to beam PC games onto TV, allowing players to enjoy their favorite titles from the comfort of their sofa. For its part, Valve said that it appealed to Apple because it does not agree that the Steam Link app is in violation of any App Store guidelines.

Apple also said on Friday that it would start reporting requests from governments to take down apps from its App Store.

Per NHC, an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance Friday afternoon, if necessary. As of May 23, we are already seeing the potential for minor flooding along the Flint River near Taylor and Crawford counties.


Valve issued a press release and informed Apple that its app functions almost identically to remote desktop applications that already exist in the App Store. The app was actually available on iOS in beta for a while before Apple pulled it.

Valve is understandably hacked off having spent many hours on this project and the approval process. Its reason: business conflicts with app guidelines.

That's pretty much a blank term for things that Apple considers to be competing with its own services and products.

Apple Inc has blocked the plans of the biggest distributor of PC-based video games to extend its reach into iPhones, according to the game distributor, a sign that Apple is serious about protecting its ability to take a cut of digital purchases made inside games on its mobile devices.
