What you need to know

After bringing PC gaming to Chromebooks earlier this year, NVIDIA is now launching its GeForce NOW game streaming service on iOS devices. Starting today, GeForce NOW members will be able to play PC games on their iPhone or iPad through the Safari browser.
To start playing PC games on your iPhone or iPad, all you need to do is launch Safari and visit play.geforcenow.com. If you do not have a GeForce NOW membership, you can sign up for free to test it out. Founders memberships are available for $5 per month, but you can get a better rate when you sign up for a 6-month Founders membership for $24.95.
GeForce NOW offers a vast catalog of PC games, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Destiny 2 Beyond Light, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more. Founders members can also enjoy games such as Watch Dogs: Legion with ray-tracing and DLSS enabled. However, you’ll need a gamepad like the Razer Kishi to be able to play these games. NVIDIA is working with Epic Games to bring a touch-friendly version of Fortnite to iOS devices in the near future.
NVIDIA has also announced that GeForce NOW will be coming to the Chrome web-based client on Linux, PC, Mac, and Android platforms early next year. NVIDIA’s first webRTC client running GeForce NOW was the Chromebook beta, which was released in August.
The Razer Kishi fits most iPhones, thanks to its flexible design. It also offers zero-latency gameplay, as it connects directly to the charging port on your device.
