Fortnite has been all but dead on Apple devices for more than a year. The cell phone maker removed Fortnite from their App Store in August of 2020. Since then, iOS players have either quit, moved to a new platform, or suffered through playing the same patch for 17 months.
There's been some light at the end of the tunnel, however, in the form of Nvidia's GeForce Now. The service allows players to stream games on all devices.
Since they offer Fortnite and will be available on iOS, iOS Fortnite fans will be able to finally play the latest iteration of the game on their platform.

This announcement means that GeForce Now beta users will be able to play Fortnite on their iOS devices as soon as next week.
It might not be the same as playing in the app, but it's the next best thing for players who have been stuck on the same patch for a year and a half.
