For Apple users, a limited selection of exclusive mobile games with no ads, extra fees or in-app purchases, is now accessible from their smartphone.
Five games have been launched, including Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Shooting Hoops, Teeter (Up), and Card Blast.
The streaming giant had already launched the service on Android but reportedly faced some obstacles with Apple’s App Store policies that delayed the rollout.

According to the policy, third-party apps are not allowed to act as storefronts for applications.
Such restrictions prevented other cloud gaming platforms, like Microsoft and Facebook Gaming, from launching their services on iOS.
