Apple rejects Steam Link iOS app because of "business conflicts"

  • Apple Blocks Valve's New Steam Link App From iOS Release

The Steam Link app was originally approved for release on May 7, Valve said, and the company announced it two days later. Valve planned to roll the app out on Android, in addition to iOS and the Apple TV.

Steam Database released a statement which says that Apple cited "business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team" as the reason for its decision.

Apple has rejected the Steam Link app for iOS twice. Which would have allowed for Steam streaming via a 5Ghz network or wired Ethernet.

Valve is hoping that the growing media attention around the removal will help change Apple's mind. What makes this ban even more ridiculous is that there are so many apps similar to Steam Link already available in the App Store.


"The team here spent many hours on this project and the approval process, so we're clearly disappointed", Valve spokesman Doug Lombardi said in a statement to Reuters. And Apple, of course, would not allow any third-party app to replicate a core iOS/macOS feature. If indeed this goes against Apple's guidelines, then all other remote desktop clients should be banned, too. It subjects apps and developers to what may at times seem like whimsical standards.

"The Tame Apple Press is insisting that Apple's actions is good because it shows the outfit" is serious about protecting its ability to take a cut of digital purchases made inside games on its mobile devices". 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.

We do know that Apple is working on universal apps for iOS and macOS, but we might not see them this year.
