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



The Valve Steam Link app is now available on iOS devices and Apple TV, almost a year after Apple initially dismissed it as "business conflicts." Steam Link allows you to transfer your existing library of computer games to other devices on the same network; the app is a Valve substitute for an already discontinued streaming box with the same name.

The news comes days after the Supreme Court ruled that Apple had to face an antitrust case linked to alleged monopoly practices around the App Store. Remarkably, however, the new iOS Steam Link does not allow users to purchase games from Steam, unlike Android.

Disabling an app whose streaming games have already been purchased on another platform seems hard to justify even under the Apple App Store rules, especially since these rules have been specifically updated to accommodate similar apps for remote a mirror last summer. Valve removed the functionality of the Steam Link betas store in June, so it's unclear why Apple had so much time to approve the app.
