After testing the software for several months, Microsoft rolled out Cloud Gaming to iPhones and iPads on Tuesday, according to an official blog post.
A handful of invitations have been sent out to users of its console cloud streaming service, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Recipients will have the opportunity to test a limited “beta” version of the service on their Apple devices before general release in the coming months.
There are more than 100 titles available to play.
Xbox Cloud Gaming runs on games console – specifically, Xbox One X – hardware modified to run in a data centre.
Games are streamed over the internet straight to your phone or tablet, without the need for a console or TV.
It promises to let users play Xbox games on any device with a screen and an internet connection.
Microsoft is still testing the complex technology, but hopes to have an iOS version ready for release this year.
