Valve announces the iOS edition of the Steam Link App has failed to meet with
Apple's standards, and at this point will not be released for iPhones. Here's
On Monday, May 7th, Apple approved the Steam Link app
for release. On Weds, May 9th, Valve released news of the app. The following
morning, Apple revoked its approval citing business conflicts with app
guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team.
Valve appealed, explaining the Steam Link app simply functions as a LAN-based
remote desktop similar to numerous remote desktop applications already available
on the App Store. Ultimately, that appeal was denied leaving the Steam Link app
for iOS blocked from release. The team here spent many hours on this project and
the approval process, so we're clearly disappointed. But we hope Apple will
reconsider in the future.
