Mobile Fortnite players can get ready to return to the island on their iPhone and iOS devices, despite the game being removed and banned from the App Store in 2020.

After months of back-and-forth legal proceedings between Apple and Epic Games, with iOS users unable to play Fortnite on their Apple devices for the duration of the lawsuit, it looks like things could be set to change.

While the game isn’t returning to the App Store, you’ll soon be able to play it via Safari on your iOS device thanks to NVIDIA GeForce.
