It wasn’t too long ago that Apple removed Fortnite from the App Store for violating the App Store’s terms of service. Both companies are now locked in a rather heated lawsuit and to be honest, we have no idea when it will come to an end, which means that for now, Fortnite won’t be playable through iOS devices.
Or is it? Turns out that gamers might still be able to enjoy Fortnite on their iPhones or iPads in the near future. According to a report from the BBC, it seems that Fortnite will be making its way onto NVIDIA’s GeForce Now game streaming service which means that iPhone and iPad gamers will be able to enjoy the game again, albeit in a different medium.
However, it should be noted that you most likely will end up streaming the game through Safari. While Apple has relaxed the rules on allowing game streaming services, they have made it almost impossible because they would require each title to be available individually on the App Store.
Given that the catalogues of streaming services can change due to licensing, and also given the sheer number of games, it seems like a lot of extra work, so streaming through Safari seems like the best workaround, at least for now. There’s no word on when Fortnite will be playable through GeForce Now, but it has been suggested that it could arrive in time for the holidays.
