For a while now, Cloud Gaming platforms have been limited in what they can do on Apple's iOS platform. Most cloud gaming applications were even blocked from releasing apps on the App Store. This is now starting to change as cloud gaming companies are beginning to utilize browser streaming technology to bring their platforms to iOS devices.

iOS Cloud Gaming

Announced today, NVIDIA will be releasing a beta that will allow the more than five million GeForce Now users to navigate to https://play.geforcenow.com and start playing their favorite games through Safari on iOS.

NVIDIA has also stated that they will be broadening the support of their Chromium web-based streaming technology outside of just Chromebooks. This will begin early next year, and they plan to make GeForce Now playable through Chrome on Linux, PC, Mac, and Android.

Fortnite on iOS!?

NVIDIA has been working closely with Epic Games to create a touch-friendly version of Fortnite for GeForce Now. This will enable iOS users to enjoy once again playing Fortnite on their Apple products.

GOG Storefront

Ahead of the December launch of Cyberpunk 2077, NVIDIA will be connecting the GeForce Now Platform to GOG. This will allow GeForce Now players to enjoy CD Projekt Red's upcoming cyberpunk RPG and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Final Thoughts

These are some sweet announcements coming from NVIDIA. IOS users have been without Cloud Gaming services (except for a select few) for quite some time. This will give them more opportunities to play their favorite games on their Apple devices now.
