Apple rejects Steam Link app on iOS

Steam Link Isn’t Coming to iPad and iPhone

"The Steam Link App will feature support for the Steam Controller, MFI controllers, and more across both platforms".

One of the major frustrations for developers trying to launch an app on Apple's App Store is having that app rejected without a clear reason as to why.

"The following morning, Apple revoked its approval citing business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realised by the original review team".

Apple ultimately denied the appeal and blocked the app's release on iOS.

A press release from Valve Corporation published earlier this month announced the impending release of a couple of new apps: Steam Link and Steam Video.

For now, iOS users are completely out of luck when it comes to playing Steam games on mobile devices.

Subtropical Storm Alberto Forms, Will Bring Heavy Rain to U.S.
But Julie Hilton said people are cancelling because of the weather and room reservations are down about 20 percent. The heavy rainfall will have the potential to cause flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas.

What business conflict could possibly block an app that streams PC games? But, while Apple does allow remote desktop apps in its App Store, Valve's won't be allowed.

It goes on to state that Valve attempted to appeal the decision, adding that many similar remote desktop streaming apps exist on the App Store, to no avail.

Valve is understandably hacked off having spent many hours on this project and the approval process. Steam Link is available for Android devices via the Google Play Store. The same day it dropped the latest version of the twice-yearly document, the company committed to including in future updates government takedown requests for the App Store.

Valve characterized the rejection as a surprise, and I can confirm that it provided a sample Apple TV to GamesBeat during the testing phase to show how well the app worked with iOS.

That's pretty much a blank term for things that Apple considers to be competing with its own services and products.
