Fortnite Re-download iPhone & iPad

There is an ongoing battle between Apple and Epic Games on the share of revenue for games listed on the App Store. Epic Games is looking to put the entire App Store revenue system of Apple at jeopardy, if it succeeds in its lawsuit. But, with the game off App Store and Epic’s dev account cancelled, where does that leave you if you want to re-download Fortnite on iPhone or iPad. Can you do it or is the game off-limits. Stick around and we will show you how to reinstall Fortnite on iPhone and iPad after the recent ban from Apple.

A prerequisite to reinstall the game on Apple devices is you must have at least installed the game once in the past. This does not work for players who want to jump into the game anew. Unfortunately, if you have not installed the game at least once in the past, you will have to wait for the tussle between the two tech giants to be over with a merry ending.

How to Re-Download Fortnite on iPhone and iPad After Apple’s Ban

So, if you had it on your device once in the past, here is how you can get the game again and enjoy it. Follow the below steps.

  1. On your respective device –an iPhone or iPad, open the App Store
  2. From the Today section, tap on your circular avatar on the top-right corner
  3. Click on the Purchased option
  4. Go into My Purchases
  5. Locate Fortnite in the list of apps or use the search tab to search for Fortnite
  6. Once the game appears, click on the Download icon to begin download.

If you are wondering whether to re-download the game now or not, you should know that even though the re-download option is available now, it may not be in the future. So, if you want to play the game, download it now or you may have to pay heavily for an Apple device with Fortnite on eBay.

If you don’t care about the game anymore, you should still reinstall it and possibly make a hefty amount by selling your device on eBay. You won’t believe the asking price for these devices with Fortnite installed. They are going for thousands of dollars.
