Epic Games took an estimated risk on August 13 when it was updated Fortnite to circumvent Apple and Google̵7;s in-app purchase fees. Predictably, this update led to the immediate removal of Fortnite from the App Store and Play Store. If you want some mobile games, you can reinstall Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad, or install manually Fortnite on all Android devices.
Everything you download from Apple’s App Store permanently matches your Apple ID. You can reinstall previously owned apps at any time, even if you use a new iPhone or iPad. Open the App Store and tap your avatar at the top right of the screen. Then go to the “Purchased” menu, press “My Purchases” and search for Fortnite. You should see the option to reinstall it along with the date you first downloaded the game on iOS.
Android players have the ability to download Fortnite directly from Epic Games, even if they have never played Fortnite on his phone or tablet. You may need to dig through the phone’s settings to allow manual downloads of the app.
Unfortunately iOS players who want to experience Fortnite for the first time is SOL. You have to wait for Apple and Epic to sort things out or play the game on a laptop, game console or Android device.
