How to play Fortnite on iOS in 2022?

Obviously, players who played and downloaded the game earlier on their iPhones can easily re-download it. This is because it will still remain in the 'purchased' section of the App Store. Here's how you can redownload it on iOS:

  1. Go to the App Store.
  2. Click the Account option on the top-right corner.
  3. Select the 'All Purchases' option under Accounts.
  4. Navigate to the 'My purchases' option. It will have a list of all the applications that have been purchased.
  5. Search for the game in the search bar.
  6. Press the download button when the game shows up in the search.

Right now, this is the best shot of playing the game on iOS in 2022. If you have never downloaded the game on your iPhone and would like to try the game, you can do so by finding and asking someone who had the game before it was banned. This can be done by taking advantage of the 'Family Sharing' feature on iOS to receive and download the game. Here's how you can do this:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Access Apple ID by tapping on the name.
  3. Select the 'Setup Family Sharing' option.
  4. Enable 'Purchase Sharing' and make sure it remains turned on.
  5. Add a payment method.
  6. Open the App Store.
  7. Go to the Purchased tab.
  8. Choose the account of the user who had downloaded the game before the ban.
  9. Search for the game and download it on your device.

So far, these are the only two working methods to play the game on iOS. Nvidia GeForce Now is planning to bring the game to its service, which might let iOS users play the game again.
