Fortnite Returns To The iPhone And iPad, Although Not Directly

The game is still not available on the App Store, but it can be accessed from Nvidia's GeForce Now service.

A year and a half after being removed from the AppStore, iPhone or iPad users can play the popular Fortnite again on their device screens. Not directly - the game is still not available in the Apple app store - but through one of the most popular cloud gaming services.

Apple removed Fortnite from the AppStore in August 2020 for breaking the rules of the application store, which prevent the use of alternative payment systems to Apple's own for in-game purchases.

Epic, the developer of Fortnite, had surreptitiously installed in one of its versions an option that allowed you to buy V-bucks, the virtual currency of the game, directly on the company's website and at a lower price.

Apple's blocking was immediate (and the same thing happened with the version of Fortnite distributed through Google Play on Android, for the same reasons). Epic then sued Apple and the result has been one of the most significant lawsuits in California for the effect it may have on the regulation of digital app and game stores.

The final sentence, published in September of last year, agreed with Apple, which it did not consider a monopoly in the mobile gaming market, but required the company to allow developers to link from apps to alternative payment systems and subscription. Apple, in any case, is not obliged to accept Fortnite in its catalog again.

The solution Epic has found is to return to iOS screens via Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service . Apple also does not allow cloud gaming services such as GeForce Now, Stadia or XCloud in its app store, but these services can be used through the Safari browser on the company's devices.

Epic and Nvidia have therefore created a version of Fortnite specifically designed for mobile phones and touch screens that can be played through the service. GeForce Now already allowed access to the PC version of Fortnite but the controls were not adapted to the touch interface of tablets or phones.

At the moment, yes, access to Fortnite through GeForce Now for iOS is limited. This is a beta version to check the gaming experience. Neither Nvidia nor Epic have yet clear when the experience will be opened to all users.

GeForce Now is available in both free and paid versions. The first has a maximum game time limit (one hour per session) and lower resolution. The second costs 9.99 euros per month and offers priority access to servers and higher graphic quality.
