My point is if steam on IOS supports mobile games (not sure about whether apple has allowed them to do this - seems unlikely) then game developers will presumably be able to bypass the itunes app store and the apple tax and deal with steam directly resulting in lost revenue to apple.

Similarly if steam on IOS doesnt support mobile games but steam on Android does now or in the future then that's a pretty good reason for gamers to buy an android and not an iphone. An interesting development!
