Several reports have already hinted that Apple could foray into a game streaming service. Now, Patently Apple has spotted a new patent titled “Enabling Interactive Service for Cloud Rendering Gaming in 5G Systems” that reveals that the Cupertino-based tech giant may be working on its own cloud game streaming service. Mind you! This patent was filed in February this year but has been published now for the public.
According to Patently Apple, the filing stated that “One potential use case for network controlled interactive service in fifth-generation (5G) wireless communication networks is cloud rendering game. Cloud gaming, (also known as gaming on demand) is a type of online gaming that allows direct and on-demand video streaming of games onto different computing devices through the use of a thin client.”
Furthermore, it was revealed that the game is stored, executed, and rendered on a remote server and the video results are streamed directly to the computing device. This enables users to access games without regard to the capability of the user’s computing device, as the remote server is responsible for storing, executing, and rendering the game. Besides this, the controls and button-presses from the user’s computing device are transmitted to the server where they are recorded. This is followed by sending the response of the game to the input controls by the server.
The patent by Apple also notified that the current 5Gs system is incapable of providing interactive services for cloud rendering gaming in efficient and optimal manners. Apple could launch its cloud game streaming service alongside its first 5G iPhone that is rumoured to make a debut in October.
As far as other services being offered by Apple is concerned, the tech giant is already providing its users services like Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Music, and Apple Arcade.
This week, Apple has announced two new live global radio offerings on Apple Music, now available to music fans in 165 countries. While Apple Music Hits, celebrates everyone’s favourite songs from the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s, Apple Music Country is about spotlighting country music. Besides this, Apple added that Beats 1, the flagship global radio station, will be renamed Apple Music 1.
Apple Music Hits will be helmed by daily on-air hosts Jayde Donovan, Estelle, Lowkey, Jenn Marino, Sabi, Nicole Sky and Natalie Sky, George Stroumboulopoulos (“House of Strombo”), along with special shows from Ari Melber and others.

On the other hand, Apple Music Country showcases an increasingly diverse genre with a talent roster full of the country’s most exciting voices.

The station offers a mix of the best music of today while introducing fans to the stars of tomorrow and reminding them of the legendary artists and tracks that have shaped and defined country music along the way.
