Microsoft’s new Xbox app comes to iOS with remote use features

After testing the beta version of the app last month, Microsoft is releasing its redesigned iOS app for Xbox, which allows users to stream Xbox games to an iPhone or iPad. Not to be confused with Microsoft's xCloud game streaming service, the new Xbox app requires an Xbox console and that users have games on that console. Instead of streaming games from Microsoft's servers, the new Xbox app can launch and stream games from your console. Unfortunately, the Xbox app will only work with Xbox One and upcoming X and S Series games. Old Xbox 360 and original Xbox games cannot be streamed to iOS or iPadOS devices with the app. The Xbox app can take control of users' Xbox consoles, activate them, and launch games remotely.

Apple is reportedly removing the ‘Stadium’ app, which saw Google Stadia running on iPhone

Apple will reportedly remove the 'Stadium' app from its App Store. Stadium was created as a workaround to allow Google Stadia to work on iPhone through a full screen browser. The stadium was inaugurated only one month ago on iOS from the creator Zachary Knox. The browser-based app used WebKit to get Stadia controller integration to make Stadia's cloud-based gaming service run on iPhones and iPads. The reasoning behind the extensive solution is simply due to strict Apple App Store policies that do not allow cloud-based gaming services like Google Stadia, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass streaming, or GeForce Now. Knox previously announced that Stadium would be removed from the App Store, according to AppleInsider. In Twitter, Knox said, "My app will be removed from the App Store,...
