Fortnite on iPhone: Fortnite is returning on Apple Devices- Fortnite has been removed from the App Store on iPhone and iPad, due to the Apple vs. Epic Games lawsuit. No signs are visible that Apple has any intention of approving Fortnite’s return to the App Store. In partnership with Nvidia, Epic Games has found a way to work around the issue. Fortnite will soon be available through GeForce NOW, Nvidia’s streaming gaming service, which will allow players to access the game through a browser on iOS devices.
The GeForce NOW game library can now be played on iOS devices thanks to Nvidia’s Safari integration released in November 2020. It was revealed that Nvidia was working with Epic Games on an iPhone and iPad edition of Fortnite. It has been more than a year since Fortnite was released for mobile. Fornite will undergo a limited-time closed beta that users can register for, according to an announcement made by Nvidia today.
GeForce NOW participants who want to be able to play Fortnite on their mobile devices can register for free at the GeForce NOW website. It will be compatible with both Android and iOS platforms via browser integration.
If you are interested in participating, please create an Nvidia account, sign up for the waitlist, and purchase a GeForce Now membership. Free and priority membership holders have the same opportunity to get into the beta, but spots are limited, according to Nvidia.
Later in January, beta testers will begin accessing the Fortnite mobile game, and after the limited beta, the game will be officially released for GeForce NOW. There is no indication at this time when the game will be more widely available. There has not been a Fortnite app available in the iOS App Store since August 13, 2020, when Apple removed it due to Epic Games adding direct purchase options and breaking Apple’s App Store guidelines.
Epic Games v. Apple reached an initial verdict earlier this year, but both companies were granted leave to appeal. The ruling did not demand Apple to reinstate Fortnite. According to Apple, it does not intend to allow the game back into its App Store until the legal battle is resolved, which could take years.
