How to get Fortnite on iOS devices

Fortnite was pulled out from Apple App Store in August 2020 after a lawsuit by Apple prohibiting players from playing the game on their mobile phones. Since then, players have been actively looking out for ways to play the popular battle royale title and not miss out on the exciting content that is being introduced by Epic Games.

However, you don't need to worry about it now as Fortnite is back to iOS devices, but this time instead of the Apple App Store, you can play it by using Nvidia GeForce Now. The game has entered closed beta testing, and here's how you get to play it on your iOS device.
