Fortnite was removed from Apple’s App Store in August shortly after the legal dispute with Epic Games began. Since then, players on iOS devices have not been able to enjoy all the news in the latest Battle Royale season.
The fight between companies continues, so it was very difficult for the game to return to iOS in any way. However, his community had hope, as recent reports ensured that Fortnite could be played again on Apple devices thanks to Nvidia GeForce Now.
After a few weeks of silence, the companies involved spoke about it. Nvidia today launched its streaming service on iOS devices and revealed that the Battle Royale will be available through GeForce Now in the Apple ecosystem.

Fortnite will return to iOS thanks to Nvidia GeForce Now
As you well know, Apple has not allowed game services such as Project xCloud and Google STADIA to make their official debut through the App Store. Nvidia decided to negotiate and find an alternative to launch GeForce Now in the iOS ecosystem.
Thus, the company worked on a version of its service that works through the Safari browser. There is good news for players who miss Fortnite on iOS, as they will soon be able to use the service to enjoy the Battle Royale with all its news.
Epic Games and Nvidia are working to bring the title with touch controls to GeForce Now. Additionally, users of the service on iOS devices can now enjoy an attractive catalog with games that already have the necessary support.
“We had discussions with Apple about the implementation of the GeForce Now iOS application. And they felt that cloud games really didn’t fit their rules. And so they recommended that we go for a web-based implementation. And that’s what we’ve done, ”said Phil Eisler, GeForce Now manager.
