Microsoft is bringing Xbox remote play to iOS

Microsoft has hinted that you’ll soon be able to stream Xbox games to iPhone.

The company has so far only officially announced the feature for Android smartphones, but it separately indicated that we can expect it for iPhones too.

There’s an iOS version of the new Xbox app on the way, but it has so far been assumed that it wouldn’t support the streaming feature. However, The Verge’s Sean Hollister says that Microsoft has hinted to him that it will.

There’s an iOS version coming too — and while my colleague Tom Warren originally suggested the console streaming feature probably wouldn’t come to iOS, I’m now willing to bet it will.

Microsoft now tells me the goal is actually to have full parity between the iOS and Android apps, and that Apple is already reviewing the iOS version now. 

And unless Microsoft is trying to push something drastically different on iOS than the existing Android app, I expect the console streaming feature to sail through review with flying colors.

Microsoft isn’t being specific on availability either, but hopefully it arrives in time for Xbox Series X and S owners to play some games on the go.
