  • Steam Link for iOS Rejected by Apple

    It looks like Apple decided not to approve the Steam Link app for iOS users. Valve just passed along this unfortunate news mere seconds ago.
    On Monday, May 7th, Apple approved the Steam Link app for release. On Weds, May 9th, Valve released news of the app. The following morning, Apple revoked its approval citing business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team. Valve appealed, explaining the Steam Link app simply functions as a LAN-based remote desktop similar to numerous remote desktop applications already available on the App Store. Ultimately, that appeal was denied leaving the Steam Link app for iOS blocked from release. The team here spent many hours on this project and the approval process, so we're clearly disappointed. But we hope Apple will reconsider in the future.

    Apple gonna Apple I suppose. If nothing else, the Android app for Steam Link is still available and works quite well.
