Epic’s legal dispute with Apple over in-app purchases and revenue cutbacks resulted in Fortnite being removed from iOS and the App Store. However, Fortnite has returned.

If Apple and Epic become pals, what does it mean? No way in hell. Fortnite can now be played on an iPhone 13 or iPad Air thanks to Microsoft and Xbox Cloud Gaming. The reason for this is that Xbox Game Pass has just added Fortnite to its collection of games, making it one of the best gaming subscriptions on the market.


Ultimate Xbox Game Pass Deal

Given the App Store restriction, you can no longer play Fortnite on an iOS or iPadOS device. Because Apple prohibits Microsoft from providing an app-based game-streaming service through the App Store, you won’t be able to utilise the Xbox Game Pass app on your iPhone or iPad.

Nevertheless, the way Xbox Cloud Gaming is handled on iPhone and iPad (through Safari) means that it will feel very much like accessing game streaming via the Android version of Xbox Game Pass.

How to use Xbox Game Pass to access Fortnite on iPhone and iPad

  • Open Safari and type in in the address bar.
  • If you need to, you may establish a new Microsoft account at this point.
  • Click “Play for Free” beneath the Fortnite panel on the Game Pass website.
  • In order to play, you must first add an Xbox Cloud Gaming icon to your iPhone or iPad home screen by selecting “Get ready to play.”
  • To accomplish that, hit the bookmark button in the upper right-hand side of Safari; it’s the symbol that looks like a box with an arrow going out of it. Select “Add to Home Screen” and then “Add” to complete the process..
  • The new Xbox Cloud gaming app-like icon on your home screen (which appears like an app but is really a bookmark) may be launched by quitting Safari.
  • You may need to re-enter your Microsoft account information (iOS/iPadOS may have saved your credentials). If you haven’t already done so, you may sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now.
  • You’ll be sent to the cloud-streamed version of Fortnite after tapping “Play” under the “Play for Free” option after you’ve signed in. Touchscreen controllers or a Bluetooth controller may be used.

Firstly, you’ll need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which is the most costly tier of the service. You can get access to Xbox and PC games plus cloud streaming and save synchronisation across all three platforms for only $14.99 or £10.99 per month with the Xbox Live Gold subscription service.


In addition, like with previous Game Pass levels, you’ll gain early access to forthcoming Xbox One exclusives like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, as well as titles like Starfield, which is coming soon.

There are a few things to keep in mind while playing Fortnite on a computer or mobile device, including the fact that the experience will not be as responsive as it is on a console or a native Android version. The Xbox Cloud Gaming app for iOS, on the other hand, has just been upgraded and now works properly even when connected through a 5G cellular network.

That being the case, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is an excellent option for those who want to play Fortnite on their iPhone.
