Steam Link App for iOS Rejected by Apple
Apple affirmed the Steam Link application for discharge. On Weds, May ninth, Valve discharged news of the application. The next morning, Apple denied its endorsement refering to business clashes with application rules that had purportedly not been acknowledged by the first survey group. Valve claimed, clarifying the Steam Link application just capacities as a LAN-based remote work area like various remote work area applications effectively accessible on the App Store.
Eventually, that interest was denied leaving the Steam Link application for iOS hindered from discharge. The group here spent numerous hours on this venture and the endorsement procedure, so we’re plainly disillusioned. In any case, we trust Apple will rethink later on.
Neither Apple nor Steam has elaborated on the “business conflicts” that lead to the app’s rejection; perhaps Apple is simply concerned that Steam Link’s existence might lead to lost App Store sales in situations where games are available on both Steam and the iOS storefront. If this is the case, it seems likely that Apple would also reject Valve’s forthcoming Steam Video app on the grounds that it conflicts with iTunes.
“The team here spent many hours on this project and the approval process, so we’re clearly disappointed,” Valve’s statement concludes, “But we hope Apple will reconsider in the future.”
