Mobile players will finally be able to return to Fortnite on Apple devices after a new workaround has been revealed with Nvidia GeForce Now. Here’s everything you need to know.

The major legal dispute between Epic Games and Apple led to the battle royale game being completely removed from the iOS App Store, preventing millions of mobile players from experiencing Fortnite Season 4.

However, a new workaround for this ban is finally on its way. It will allow players to return to the popular game on iOS, by utilizing Nvidia’s cloud gaming service.
