It seems that Steam Link will still be released on iOS, but without the ability to make purchases

Last month, the extremely pleasant news from Valve about the launch of Steam Link, an application that allows streaming games from a PC directly to a smartphone, was overshadowed by the extremely unpleasant news that the program does not let Apple into its store, even without explaining the reasons.

After WWDC, the company clarified the moment with this type of applications, and, as many had expected, the problem was in the ability to buy games directly in the program. Valve, without thinking twice, just removed this feature from the program. At the place of the purchase button, the inscription “You can make a purchase with a PC” now flaunts.

But the most interesting is that the Steam Marketplace is still available, and there you can buy in-game items using the tools of your Steam-purse. Although it will not be possible to replenish it in the application.

I’m glad that Steam decided to cooperate with Apple, and the latter did not leave this issue hanging in the air. We are waiting for a full release of the application in the App Store.
