We’ve been able to purchase from Steam. PlayStation, and other companies for a few years now their apps are currently on the AppStore. I can buy Steam games from their other app on the AppStore right now, plus there are already many other pc mirroring apps on there but the consumers were extremely excited about the official Steam “Link” app because it would be a very clean professional build instead of using other unofficial mirroring apps that want you to pay to use. Apple messed up very bad, we, the consumers, got burned very bad by them banning this app, plus they lost a very good marketing tool that could of helped them sell more IPhone and IPads, more IOS units would of been more AppStore and ITunes purchases in the long run. Instead they just handed their competitors their biggest break. The news is all over the internet right now. If I had stock in Apple right now I would be getting a little nervous.

"For Apple, this week has been a storm of bad news."

Here are the three "bad news" stories that are really no big deal at all:

1) iPhone 6 and 6 Plus only bent if an unusual amount of pressure was applied to it. Bending only occurred if the user was doing something unintentionally destructive, such as putting the phone in their back pocket and then sitting on it full-force. We also saw intentional cases of bending the phones on YouTube, with the people bending the phone really had to apply extreme pressure using both hands. But in normal situations the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have had no bending problems, and millions of iPhone users are still happily using their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus iPhones WITHOUT any bending occurring!

2) Apple rejected Valve's Steam Link app because the developers of that app DID NOT comply with the agreement and rules for submitting apps to the App Store. Other apps have also been rejected for not complying with the rules. Nothing new here. The rule that the developer broke was that an app must not attempt to "directly or indirectly target iOS users to use a purchasing method other than in-app purchase." All that the developer needs to do is to revise the app so that there are no direct purchases in the app, and then re-submit the app.

3) It's unknown how many of the almost 50 Million iPhone X sold have had cracked lenses... But it is UNTRUE to say that "the only way to fix it is to have the whole unit replaced at their expense (if you don't have AppleCare+)". All iPhones are covered by a 1-year warranty, so any hardware problems like this one are fully covered at ZERO expense to the user. Also, as in the past, if a hardware problem arises that is caused by a deficiency, Apple has provided extended warranties to cover those problems even beyond the 1-year warranty.

In other words, "Nothing to see here folks, move along".

One comment about Motherboard's "reveal" that iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were more likely to bend than the iPhone 5S...

Of course this was known because the iPhone 6, and especially the iPhone 6 Plus are MUCH longer and thinner than the MUCH smaller iPhone 5s.

Take a stick that is 12 inches long and 1 inch thick and bend and break it with your hands. Then, take a stick that is 6 inches long and 2 inches thick, and try to bend and break it... It would take a much greater effort to do that with the shorter, thicker stick. These are not the same proportions as the iPhones, but it is an example of how much more easily longer, thinner things bend and break than the same type of things that are shorter and thicker.

Buying any phone at $1000 price point is just plain ludicrous. Any phone you buy does not come with any warranty. They claim there is a warranty but good luck trying to claim it. It's just plain false advertising and criminal.

For your information, the iPhone X is covered by a 1-year warranty... As are ALL iPhones!

How many of the approximately 50 Million iPhone X models have had cracked lenses, and did the cracks appear after an incident of misuse (for example dropping the phone, or subjecting it to extreme temperatures)?

If it is a defect in the iPhone X that affects ALL owners of that phone, then that will be covered under warranty. If it is only a few people, and is the result of misuse, it probably won't be covered... Just like any other type of damage caused by the user.
