Game streaming enables players to stream games from consoles so they can play them on alternative devices. Microsoft announced at E3 that its building a game-streaming service so that players can stream to a range of devices. However, you don’t have to wait for Microsoft to establish its game-streaming network to stream Xbox games to iPhones. You can now stream Xbox One games to iOS devices with the new OneCast app.

The developer Owen Stanley first released OneCast for the macOS earlier in 2018. Now the publisher has extended OneCast to iOS platforms. Thus, you can utilize the app to stream Xbox One games to some Apple iPhone, iPad and Mac devices. The new app is retailing at $11.99 at iTunes, and the Mac app is available for $20.

The new iOS app can stream Xbox One games to iPhones and iPads at a FHD 1080p resolution. Users can set up multiple profiles so that they can utilize alternative Xbox One consoles if required. The app also provides various control modes, which include a built-in virtual controller.

How to stream Xbox games to iPhone

Note that you’ll need an iOS 10 mobile or higher to stream games to iPhones. Users need to sign in to OneCast with an Xbox Live gamertag. The gamertag will register your Xbox One for the app so you can stream games. You’ll also need to have your Xbox One and iOS device connected to the same network.

OneCast is the first app to bring Xbox games to Apple platforms, but not the first to provide Xbox One streaming. The Xbox app enables players to stream Xbox One games to Windows 10.
