It is again possible to play Fortnite on iPhone via a small workaround. Kind of a middle finger to Apple.
Since Epic Games and Apple are involved in a legal battle, Fortnite can no longer be downloaded in the App Store. This makes it impossible to play the shooter on iOS. After a long time, a solution has finally been found. Thanks to Microsoft†
It is possible to stream Fortnite on iPhone via Xbox Cloud Gaming. This way you can still play the shooter on the Apple device. The icing on the applesauce is that this option has been made available for free. You do not have to pay for this workaround.
In addition to iOS, it is also possible to play Fortnite in this way on the iPad, an Android device or on Windows.
It’s Microsoft’s smart way to showcase Xbox Cloud Gaming. By offering it for free, people can get acquainted with the service without obligation. Perhaps it tastes like more and that group is considering taking out a subscription to stream other games.
Xbox Cloud Gaming is Microsoft’s latest asset to capture the hearts of gamers. It has even forced Sony to reorganize PlayStation Now and Plus into a new competing service.
