The report did not indicate any specific purpose to the visit, and as of press time, neither Valve nor Apple had responded to GameSpot's requests for comment.

Valve's present partnership with Apple is limited to the digital distribution hub Steam being available on Mac computers, and a Steam iPhone app, which was released in January.

In March, rumors emerged that Valve was working on hardware of its own, though the company said gamers should not expect anything from the firm anytime soon.
