Valve's Steam Link app is finally available for iOS and Apple TV



Valve's Steam Link app is now available on iOS devices and Apple TV, almost a year after Apple rejected it for "business conflicts." Steam Link lets you beam your existing library of PC games to other devices on the same network; The app is Valve's replacement for a now interrupted streaming box that has the same name.

The news comes days after the Supreme Court decided that Apple must face an antitrust lawsuit related to alleged monopolistic practices around the App Store. However, it is noteworthy that the new iOS Steam Link app does not allow users to purchase games from the steam store, unlike Android.

Prohibition of an app that streamed games that were already purchased on another platform seemed difficult to justify, even within Apple's App Store rules, especially after the rules were updated specifically to accommodate similar remote mirroring apps last summer. Valve removed the store functionality of Steam Link back in June, but it is therefore unclear why it took so long for Apple to approve the app.
