Xbox Series X and S come packed with plenty of performance-enhancing features, but one of the best is the Quick Resume function. Find out how you can utilize it and save those precious minutes. 

Part of what makes the Xbox Series consoles so appealing is the lightning-fast load times. Gone are the days of spending numerous minutes waiting to boot up your console or sitting through lengthy load times. Thanks to the custom 1TB NVME SSD, all Series X and S games can be played within a matter of seconds. 

This increase in speed also allows for one of Microsoft’s best features to truly shine. Quick Resume enables you to pause a game and load up another entirely. Any progress will instantly be suspended, allowing you to jump straight into multiple games whenever you choose.

It’s a fantastic feature and one that you’ll want to make use of, so here how you can utilize the new consoles’ Quick Resume feature. 

How to use Xbox Quick Resume

In order to use the Quick Resume feature, you’ll first need to boot up the game you wish to play. Once you’ve done this, follow the steps below:

  1. Hit the Xbox button (the one with the Xbox icon).
  2. Select the Home button from the drop-down menu.
  3. Navigate over to your My games and apps folder.
  4. Select the game you want to play.

If the game you selected was already previously opened, then the Start button prompt will appear on the screen. Simply hit the Start button to resume your progress and begin playing where you last left off. 

Multiple games can be opened at once, allowing you to constantly switch back and forth between any game in a few seconds. Even when the system is powered off, the Xbox Series’ Quick Resume feature will get you straight back into the action.  

It’s really as simple as that, so make sure you use this time-saving feature on the Series’ new and backwards compatible titles. Make sure you check out the rest of our Xbox guides right here on Dexerto, as well as our full review of Microsoft’s next-gen console

Will Fortnite return to iOS in Season 5? Epic launches new Apple lawsuit

Fortnite could be making a return to iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices in 2020, just in time for Season 5. Epic has launched a new lawsuit against Apple in Australia in the hopes of getting the game put back on the Apple App Store before Christmas.

Epic and Apple’s feud over Fortnite and in-app purchases has now spilled across international borders. While initial lawsuits were lodged in the United States back in August 2020, Epic has now filed a new case in Australia.

It comes in a late bid to see Fortnite return to the Apple App Store in Season 5, which launches on November 30, as well as before the big Christmas boom.

Epic filed the Australian lawsuit against Apple on November 18. The Fortnite developer alleges “Apple’s conduct in its App Store is a misuse of market power,” and by doing so, the App Store operator is breaching Australian Consumer Law.

“This is much bigger than Epic versus Apple – it goes to the heart of whether consumers and creators can do business together directly on mobile platforms or are forced to use monopoly channels against wishes and interests,” Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said in a press release.

The Australian Consumer Law states that corporations with substantial power in a market “must not engage in conduct…substantially lessening competition.” It also states that companies can’t engage in “exclusive dealing,” effectively stopping monopolies in the market.

Epic alleges the Apple App Store has imposed “an absolute monopoly on distribution,” crippling the market.

Apple is yet to respond to the Australian lawsuit.

What does this Epic v Apple lawsuit mean for Fortnite players?

The lawsuit lodged in the Federal Court of Australia could mean Fortnite players on iOS devices might be greeted with an early return to the game.

With less than two weeks out from Fortnite Season 5, it’s unlikely Epic and Apple will be able to resolve the dispute before the start of the season. However, a mid-season return before the end of 2020 or nearing the start of 2021 is still on the cards.

While the lawsuit was lodged in Australia, it’s likely the judgment will have an impact on the global market. No matter where you play Fortnite from, you could be able to jump back on your iPhone or iPad and start again very soon.
