THE Fortnite app was blocked on iPhone and iPad for a while, but the game has finally made a comeback.
Nvidia announced on Thursday that Fortnite has launched on GeForce NOW, which you can access through Apple’s Safari web browser.
Basically, instead of using the app, you can now stream the game to mobile via the cloud using the iPhone web browser.
The workaround was launched in beta earlier this year but has now been released to the wider gaming public.
Of course, Fortnite is also available for Android via the GeForce NOW Android app.
How to play Fortnite on iOS
First you need to create an Nvidia account if you don’t already have one, which you can do here.
Nvidia said: “Visit the GeForce NOW membership page and choose from one of three tiers of performance, including a free membership option.
“RTX 3080 and Priority members get an enhanced experience with high-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 instantly at play.geforcenow.com.
“Members can link their Epic Games account via the Settings > Connections menu to automatically sign into Fortnite on game launch.”
Why is Fortnite not available on iOS?
Apple pulled Fortnite from the App Store in 2020 after Epic Games added a direct payment option to avoid the iPhone maker’s 30% cut.
Since then, we’ve witnessed a protracted legal battle between the two companies, with Fortnite facing a five-year ban from iOS.
The prospects were pretty bleak for players who had played the game exclusively on an iPad or iPhone.
But Nvidia has essentially found a workaround for iOS users, and you can start playing next week if you’re lucky.
