Apple has decided that it won’t allow iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV owners to play PC games through Steam Link.
Valve’s new app, which is now available in beta on Android, has been banned from the App Store because of “business conflicts.” Apple has also turned down Valve’s appeals.
It’s yet another example of Apple customers being hurt by its often farcical App Store rules. What makes this ban even more ridiculous is that there are so many apps similar to Steam Link already available in the App Store.
You can now play your PC game library anywhere around your home without being weighed down by a chunky gaming laptop. The official Steam Link app lets you enjoy your favorite Steam games on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
You’ll be able to play with a Steam Controller, MFi controller, or a range of other gamepads supported by Steam.
