THE Fortnite app has been blocked on iPhone and iPad for a while but the game has finally made a comeback.
Nvidia on Thursday announced that Fortnite has launched on GeForce NOW, which you can access on Apple’s Safari web browser.
Basically, instead of using the app, you can now stream the game on mobile through the cloud using the iPhone web browser.
The workaround launched in beta earlier this year but has now been released to the wider gaming public.
Of course, Fortnite is available on Android, too, via the GeForce NOW Android app.
How to play Fortnite on iOS
To start with, you will need to create an Nvidia account if you don’t have one already, which you can do here.
Nvidia said: “Visit the GeForce NOW membership page and choose from one of three levels of performance, including a Free membership option.
“RTX 3080 and Priority members get an upgraded experience with higher quality graphics, faster access to servers and more features.
“After signing up, download native GeForce NOW game streaming apps for PC, Mac, Android or TV, or start streaming right away from play.geforcenow.com.
“Members can link their Epic Games account from the Settings > Connections menu to automatically sign in to Fortnite upon game launch.”
Why isn’t Fortnite on iOS?
Apple pulled Fortnite from the App Store in 2020 after Epic Games added a direct payment option to avoid the iPhone manufacturer’s 30% cut.
Since then, we’ve witnessed a drawn-out legal battle between the two companies, with Fortnite facing a five-year ban on iOS.
The outlook has been pretty bleak for gamers that had been playing the game solely on an iPad or iPhone.
But Nvidia has essentially figured out a workaround for iOS users and you can start playing next week if you get lucky.
