Earlier this month, Valve announced it was working on two apps for Android and iOS, with one being a Steam Link app to stream games from a computer to your Android or iOS device, and the other a Steam Video app, for watching Steam's library of videos. While the Android version is available as a beta currently, it appears Apple has rejected the iOS version.
According to a Valve press statement shared by the Steam Database Twitter, Apple initially approved the Steam Link app on May 7, but following the public announcement of the app on May 9 this approval was revoked. The reason given was 'business conflicts with app guidelines' and the original review team failed to notice this. Valve appealed but was unsuccessful, despite pointing out the app acts as a remote desktop similar to many other apps available in the App Store. For now, unless Apple reconsiders, it looks like only Android devices will get to enjoy a Steam Link app.
