Today's a good day for gamers with an iOS device, because in addition to Google's announcement that Stadia is coming soon to Apple's platform, NVIDIA has announced that it's bringing its game streaming service to iOS, too.
GeForce Now for iOS is available in beta starting today. Just like Amazon Luna and Google Stadia, NVIDIA is using a web app to get GeForce Now working on iOS without having to go through the App Store and be subject to Apple's rules.
To give GeForce Now a try, grab your iPhone or iPad and point the Safari browser at play.geforcenow.com. It'll ask you to add a shortcut to your home screen, and then you can just tap the icon and jump into the GeForce Now catalog.
You will need to create an account to begin playing games on GeForce Now. You can get one free, but your sessions will be limited to one hour. NVIDIA does offer a Founders membership at a price of $4.99 per month or $24.95 for six months, and it'll get you front-of-the-line access to streaming, extended session lengths, and improved graphics with ray tracing.
NVIDIA also notes that GeForce Now does require a gamepad. You can pair an Xbox or PlayStation controller with your iPhone or iPad, and there are also mobile-focused gamepads like the Razer Kishi.
There are more than 750 games on GeForce Now, including major releases like Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Destiny 2, and Apex Legends. And NVIDIA says that it's added a cloud-streaming friendly version of Fortnite to GeForce Now soon, which is big news for Fortnite fans since it's been three months since Apple pulled Fortnite from the App Store because of its fight with developer Epic Games.
