It has been close to a year since Steam released Steam Link onto Android and iOS. At least, that was the plan before Apple decided that the app didn’t belong on the App Store and that it might be violating a number of iOS guidelines.

Well, it seems the two have figured it out, as Steam Link is officially available for iOS 10 and newer. From some comments we’re seeing on Twitter, if you’re in Canada, you may have to wait until May 21st for the app to be made available, however.

What is Steam Link?

With Steam Link, gamers can stream games from their computer to their phone or tablet. All devices involved in the process must be on the same network and you’ll have to use either a Steam controller or other MFi controller.

Overall, the idea behind Steam Link is pretty cool, and having the option to stream games to your couch is definitely appealing. Some users have reported issues with lag and latency, but Steam recommends using a router with 5Ghz band to help with that, as well as staying relatively close to your router.

Plan on trying Steam Link out on your iOS devices? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
