Nvidia published today that it is working with Epic Games to bring Fortnite back to Apple devices soon. This, the organization plans to do through GeForce Presently, Nvidia’s game streaming service.
You’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, Apple and Epic Games had, for lack of a better word, an “epic” sequel when the Fortnite developer launched their billing system within Fortnite on iOS. This works against Apple’s development policies and the Cupertino giant hit Fortnite out of the App Store, sparking months of back-and-forth public relations and lawsuits between the companies.
All of that means Fortnite fans haven’t been able to play the game on an iPhone or iPad for the past few months. However, according to the Nvidia blog post, that will change soon. Together with this amazing team at Epic Games, we continue working on allowing a touch version of Fortnite, which will prevent the availability of this game. […] We look forward to delivering a Fortnite mobile cloud streaming experience powered by GeForce NOW. Members can explore this game at iOS Safari soon. “Said the company.
As for how it will work, Nvidia’s game streaming service will run through Safari, as will Amazon Luna, because Apple doesn’t want game streaming services on the App Store, as if Apple Arcade is going to fight. the plethora. of PC games offered by game streaming services.
Both ways, GeForce Now is accessible for iOS devices in beta right now. Therefore, if you are in a region where the service is available, you can test the service on your iPhone. By the way, you will need a compatible game controller.

Fortnite, the popular Battle Royale game, has been out of commission on iOS since the unseemly feud between Apple and Epic Games broke out earlier this year. However, iPhone and iPad owners can get it back on their Apple devices through a new solution, thanks to Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now. The service originally began rolling out to all Windows, Mac, and Android users last February, after weeks of beta testing that began last year on Android.
According to the BBC, the San Diego-based chip giant is said to be ready to introduce the game to GeForce Now in the coming weeks, allowing iPhone and iPad users to play with any standard mobile web browser, such as Safari. The company has yet to announce any official release deadline, but the report claims it could happen “before winter break.”
It’s worth noting that Nvidia had previously revealed that it is looking to bring GeForce Now to the web on both desktop and mobile platforms, allowing people to access the service using any WebRTC-compatible browser on any platform. While the feature was originally intended for Chromebooks, now it will apparently also help Fortnite fans play games on iPhones and iPads.
Apple had removed Fortnite from the App Store after Epic introduced a new in-game payment processing option to save the 30% commission that Apple charges for every transaction made through its platform. Later, Apple canceled Epic’s developer accounts on Mac and iOS and removed all of their other games from the App Store. Since then, the companies have been embroiled in legal disputes, and the two have filed multiple lawsuits with each other.
