Microsoft Says That It Still Wants To Bring Xbox Game Pass To The iPhone

Microsoft says that it still wants to bring its Xbox Game Pass game streaming service to the iPhone at some point, despite Apple’s push back on the possibility.

Last month saw Microsoft put a stop to its Project xCloud beta on the iPhone after deciding that it wasn’t viable to launch on the App Store.

Apple has subsequently changed its App Store rules to try and make it possible for streaming services like Xbox Game Pass to live in the store. Microsoft has already said that the rule changes don’t do enough, though.

In a new interview on CNBC, Microsoft’s Xbox lead Phil Spencer was talking about the company’s recent buyout frenzy, but attention also turned to the App Store.

“We’re committed to bringing Game Pass to all mobile phones out there, including Apple phones,” Spencer said during the interview. “We’ll continue the conversations and I’m sure we’ll be able to get to some resolution.”

Apple’s rule changes would allow Xbox Game Pass to exist as a catalog app, but each game that would be available via the service would also need to go through App Store review individually. That isn’t workable for a number of reasons, with Microsoft complaining that it would still force a “bad experience” on users.
