With 5G and ever-faster Wi-Fi, cloud gaming is set to become big business, worth more than $3 billion this year alone, according to one estimate.
All the big players have – or are launching – cloud gaming services. But if you’re on iOS, there’s bad news: Apple won’t allow cloud gaming services on the App Store.
It’s too bad, because a huge range of titles could be immediately available to play on iPhone or iPad.
The good news is that most cloud games will play through a browser. Indeed, Nvidia’s GeForce Now soon will feature popular multiplayer game Fortnite – banned by Apple from the App Store due to a legal dispute with the game’s developer – and there’s little Cupertino can do about it.
