Microsoft has figured out how to get around the rules and Xbox Game Pass will reach Apple devices

We all know Apple has very strict rules, and all apps that wanted to be part of its ecosystem have to adhere to very strict rules, and most importantly, pay a 30% fee on all transactions made in the app. . . This is the reason that raised the dispute between Apple and Epic Games, which considers 30% to be a very high amount … along with the fact that programmers have no other way to make their work available to iPhone customers.

In addition, Apple has already publicly revealed that services like Xbox Game Pass, or Google Stadia, would be allowed to offer their game streaming services, only if each individual game in the catalog was available with its own separate app, something which is the complete opposite of this type of service. A few days later, Microsoft indicated that this approach would be a failure for Game Pass, which has dozens of games available:

“Unfortunately, we don’t have a way to present our vision for cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to iOS gamers through the Apple App Store,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in August.

Xbox Game Pass will reach Apple devices through the browser

Now, despite all of these challenges, Microsoft is committed to making Game Pass available on Apple devices. Xbox boss Phill Spencer had previously publicly stated that he was committed to bringing Game Pass to Apple users, and recently informed company officials that access to the iPhone and the iPad would be done via browsers.

“We’ll definitely end up on iOS,” Spencer told officials, according to two people with direct knowledge of his comments.

As of now, Microsoft has not yet made any public comment on this situation, but if it is true, the company manages to bypass the rules of Apple, which cannot do anything about it.
