Fortnite isn’t available to play on iPhones or any other device that runs iOS. This is due to the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Epic Games. Well, this feud has led to millions of players struggling to enjoy the battle royale classic on their Apple devices.

However, there are a few methods that could let them enjoy Fortnite on iOS in 2021. Players who have already played the game on their iPhones can simply re-download, while new users will have to find people who had Fortnite on their devices before the ban got effective.

Fortnite on iPhone in 2021

It has been over a year since Apple banned Fortnite from iPhones and iOS. Last year, Epic Games’ battle royale hit was well on its way to becoming the biggest game on the platform. Players who downloaded the free-to-play game from the Apple Play Store before the ban can still play it. This is because Fortnite will remain in their “purchased” section of the App Store.

If you’re an iOS user and want to play Fortnite again, here are some simple steps to download the game again.

  • Open App Store
  • Tap “Account” on the top-right corner
  • Choose the ‘All Purchases’ option under Accounts
  • Visit the ‘My purchases’ option
  • Type ‘Fortnite’ in the search bar
  • The results will show the game, and then tap on the download button

Currently, this is the only credible way for former players to download Fortnite on iPhone in 2021.
