Well, no big surprise because today a new patent for cloud gaming service has been published by Apple. This patent was published in Europe and mentioned: “Enabling Interactive Service for Cloud Rendering Gaming in 5G System”.
This message means that there will be interactive cloud gaming in the upcoming 5G iPhones that are set to be released in October. The patent has a few details, so hear them out.
“The game is stored, executed, and rendered on a remote server and the video results are streamed directly to the computing device,” the patent description reads. “This allows users to access games without regard to the capability of the user’s computing device, as the remote server is responsible for storing, executing, and rendering the game.”
“The controls and button-presses from the user’s computing device are transmitted to the server, where they are recorded, and the server then sends back the game’s response to the input controls,” it continues. “Current 5Gs system lacks the capability to provision interactive services for cloud rendering gaming in efficient and optimal manners.”
Other than this, Apple has also found solution to numerous known problems that are associated with Cloud Gaming. You can read them here.

Well, now we can understand why they were not allowing other cloud game services in their store. At first, we thought it was apple restricting people in their eco-system but now it seems that they are making something for their users, and not allowing competition, which is sad. Anyhow, we’ll see if there are more updates to this by Apple themselves. Right now, they are fighting legal battles with Epic Games and others.
