Fortnite can return to iOS with GeForce Now

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported on Thursday that Apple iPhone and iPad users may soon be able to watch Epic Games Fortnite via the cloud service.

NVIDIA has developed a version of GeForce cloud gaming service that can be used in the Safari web browser. In this way, Apple does not receive any commissions on virtual items sold in fighting games.

Apple and Epic were in a lawsuit that caused the company to remove the game from the App Store. Epic claims Apple's 30% commission on in-app game purchases is anti-competitive. Apple didn't blame Epic for anything.

The case is due to go to trial in May and resolving it could take several years. The documents in this case show that the game (Fortnite) has 116 million iOS users.

Unlike Android, Apple does not allow downloading games or other applications to their phones or tablets through the App Store without a store. However, it does not restrict the third-party services that can run in Safari or other web browsers that can be used through the store.

Nvidia currently offers GeForce Now services for Mac, Windows, Android and Chrome OS devices. The company hasn't officially announced that it will roll out the service for iOS, but it is expected to roll out before the winter break. However, Fortnite can still be excluded from the list of games provided by Apple devices.

According to reports from several online forums, the game was temporarily removed from the Android version of GeForce Now in December.

In theory, Apple laptop users can play Fortnite for free through Nvidia.

The game and GeForce Now base level provide free access, but Nvidia limits these sessions to an hour.

NVIDIA uses remote computer servers to process player requests and generate graphics. And data associated with redirecting traffic to the mobile device causing a very short delay.
