App Store: The ban on game streaming applications has been confirmed

Speaking at Business Insider this week, Apple has clearly confirmed that it will not allow services game streaming into a iOS, as the company claims, these services violate the App Store policy and, therefore, may not exist in iPhone ή iPad.

Apple's only basic information on how these services violate the policy, is because Stadia, xCloud and GeForce Now games all work in a group, not individually. As a result, games from Google Stadia do not appear in the App Store for iPhone or iPad users.

"The App Store was created to be a safe and secure place for customers to discover and download applications and a great business opportunity for all developers. Before going to our store, all applications are tested based on the same set of instructions that aim to protect customers and provide a level playing field. competition to developers. "

"Our customers enjoy great apps and games from millions of developers, and gaming services can be found in the App Store as long as they follow the same set of instructions that apply to all developers, including submitting games individually for review.. "Apart from the App Store, developers can choose to reach all iPhone and iPad users over the Internet, through Safari and other browsers in the App Store."

Section 4.2.7 of the policy explains the terms for remote applications, which go beyond the basic limitations of services such as Stadia and xCloud.

For example, Apple notes that "the central device and the client must be connected to a local area network and LAN.

But for cloud-streaming services, this is not the case.

Of course, there is also the point of trading. For Google Stadia to work fully on an iPad or iPhone, the company would have to use App Store pricing, which in turn would give Apple a 30% reduction in game purchases and a monthly Pro subscription.

At the moment, Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud and GeForce Now just can't be found on iPhone or iPad, unfortunately. Hopefully Apple will finally review its policy on these types of services, given how nice game streaming is.
