Xbox One streaming to iPhone, iPad and Mac is now available through a third-party app called OneCast.
The application works much like Microsoft’s native Xbox app on Windows 10 devices, allowing a player to stream gameplay to an Apple device. The iPhone and iPad app even comes with an on-screen controller in case you don’t have a proper one present.
Available on iPhone and iPad for $19.99 AUD or on Mac for $30.40 AUD, the apps will make you sign in with your Microsoft Account and prefers you to use an Xbox One controller that’s connected to the Xbox One itself (meaning you’ll need to be close to your console). The app also recommends that your Xbox One is connected to your home network via LAN and that your iPhone, iPad or Mac use 5Ghz wifi where possible.
We’ve yet to check out OneCast for ourselves, but Windows Central has given the app a go and says it works very well, with no artefacting and minimal lag.
Are you prepared to drop some cash to be able to stream from an Xbox One to your Apple device, or are you holding out for a first-party solution from Microsoft itself?
