IOS Steam Link App Rejected By Apple

Don't give me steam Steam Link Isn’t Coming to iPad and iPhone

- “On Monday, May 7th, Apple approved the Steam Link app for release. Any in-game purchases for streamed games are done through Steam, thus circumventing Apple's monopoly on complete and total control over its App Store revenue.

Valve revealed that Apple has rejected the Steam Link iOS app, twice.

"Ultimately, that appeal was denied leaving the Steam Link app for iOS blocked from release", the release continues. Which would have allowed for Steam streaming via a 5Ghz network or wired Ethernet.

Steam Link certainly turned some heads when it was announced, giving gamers the ability to play their Steam games right from their smartphones or tablets. 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. Steam Link is already available for some smart TVs, and a successful beta launch for Android was carried out earlier this month, so Valve was primed to release the service on Apple iOS devices. In the Government and Private Party Requests portion of this most recent document, Apple briefly notes that it, "will report on Government requests to take down Apps from the App Store in instances related to alleged violations of legal and/or policy provisions".

Even though the settlement only covers USA customers, Tesla said it would compensate "all customers globally in the same way". The settlement, which was agreed to late Thursday in San Jose federal court, has to get a final signoff from U.S.

Valve is "clearly disappointed" about the decision, as the Steam Link iOS team "spent many hours on this project and the approval process".

What are those business conflicts? Chinese regulators also forced Apple to remove Microsoft Corp's Skype internet phone and messaging app from the App Store in China.

Although Apple is likely to never admit it, Valve is nearly certainly being viewed as a threat to the coveted 30 percent fee that developers are forced to pay Apple for selling apps.

Valvie is hoping Apple will reconsider in future, but it seems likely this is the end of the matter and Apple won't change its mind.
