Nvidia reported on Thursday that its GeForce Now game streaming service is presently accessible on iPads and iPhones — through the Safari browser.
The launch implies Apple clients will at last have the option to play console-quality games, including some that have been prohibited from the App Store, similar to Epic Games’ Fortnite, which will launch soon.
Game streaming services from Google, Microsoft and Nvidia have so far been inaccessible on iPhones and iPads as a result of Apple’s strict App Store rules. Nvidia, following a similar way as Amazon, used a workaround and empowered the service through the Safari web browser. That keeps the service off an application and out of Apple’s App Store.
GeForce Now is a subscription service that begins at $4.99 every month and incorporates popular games like “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” and “Destiny 2 Beyond Light” that are regularly played on gaming computers or game consoles from Sony or Microsoft. Nvidia said the service requires a controller and won’t work with a keyboard or mouse.
Microsoft’s comparable service, xCloud, is accessible for Android phones yet hasn’t launched on iPhone yet. Microsoft could take a comparable way to Nvidia and Amazon by building a web version of the application.
