Valve has been surprisingly great at updating Steam Link (Free) on iOS with not just fixes but also new features to improve the app for those on modern iOS devices. With the whole xCloud drama with Apple’s vague rules and rejections, I’m glad Steam Link finally made it to iOS. After Valve added in keyboard and mouse support a while ago, low latency support has been added to Steam Link for iOS 14 in the newest update. The highlights of this update for me is rumble on iOS 14 for Xbox One and the PS4 controllers. The update also brings in support for the guide button on controllers in iOS 14 and the Razer Kishi. You can also stream to external displays with this update. Overall, Steam Link has been massively improved over the weekend thanks to these features and I can’t wait to see what gets added next and to see when Valve brings in PS5 controller support.
With low latency keyboard and mouse support and improved controller support, Steam Link is loads better than it was at launch. With both Sony and Microsoft updating their own apps for streaming locally from the console and bringing in new features, it has never been a better time to stream games from PC or console to your iOS device than now. I’m also interested to see how streaming works locally for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S systems when they release this month. You can download the app on iOS here and on Android here.
