Epic Games, maker of Fortnite, is challenging the status quo. The fight has been started since 2018 with Google and Android, but now goes all in with Apple too.
- Fornite is kicked out from both Apple App Store and Google Play Store
- People are selling devices with Fortnite installed for thousands of dollars
- Either you are using iOS or Android, there’s an easy way to install Fortnite today – even after it has been kicked out from the App Store
Unless you are living on a cave or not really into tech news, you should have heard on the recent tech news whereby Apple kicked Fortnite – one of the most played games in the world today in 2020 – out from the Apple App Store. Like the news was not huge and controversial enough, there’s another big news that made headlines on news websites and forums all over the world: wave of people selling iPhone with Fortnite installed for thousands of dollars. Crazy!
If you are the few select people who has the money to splurge on it, then go for it. But if you are not or doesn’t willing to spend your hard-earned money on the expensive devices while at the same time you want to play Fortnite – not to worry, I got you covered!

Install Fortnite: If you are using iOS (iPhone or iPad)
Things a little bit tricky if you are using iOS, but here’s how you can get Fortnite to install on your iOS device:
If you had Fortnite installed before:
1) From your iOS device, go to App Store.
2) Inside App Store, go to Search tab. Tap on your Apple ID icon (located on top right of the screen). This should bring you to your account page.
3) Under the account page, tap on “Purchased”. Once the page is fully loaded, tap on the “All” tab, then on the search bar, type “Fortnite”.
At the time this article is written, I can still find “Fortnite” and I still can install it to my iPhone. Hopefully Apple won’t delete/restrict this method and the issue between Apple and Epic can be quickly settled.
If you never install Fortnite before:
At this moment, I don’t really have a working solution yet, but a few things in mind are these:
1) Borrow your family/friends account who has Fortnite installed before, using their account, and follow the steps above, you should be able to install Fortnite into your iOS device. This is given Apple won’t restrict this method in the future.
2) Sideloading Fortnite. I’m currently opening a thread in Reddit to ask people how sideloading is possible for Fortnite. You can follow the updates on the link below. Hopefully there’s will be a way to get Fortnite sideloaded.
