Fortnite iOS is Now Available For Everyone (If Your Device Supports It)

Hang in there, Android friends.

Fortnite for iOS is officially available for everyone. Invites are no longer necessary. That means you get Fortnite! And you get Fortnite! Android users, you get bees. Fortnite is coming to Android soon though, don't worry.

Epic Games snipped the ribbon on Fortnite for iOS this morning. It's a free download; all you need to play is a compatible device, which include the iPhone SE, 6S, 7, 8, or X, as well as the iPad Mini 4, Air 2, 2017, or Pro.

Incompatible devices include the iPhone 5S, 6, and 6 Plus, as well as the iPad Air, Mini 2, Mini 3, and iPod Touch. As for Android, Epic's official site for Fortnite Mobile states "Android support is coming within the next few months. If you are on an Android device, please click 'Get Started' to sign up. We’ll notify you when your Android device is supported."

Hopefully Epic is prepared for the inevitable influx of traffic: Fortnite Mobile had no problem racking up a huge player base even when the game was invite-only. You'll want to visit our guide for Fortnite Mobile, since playing with a touch-screen controller is quite a bit different from playing with traditional input methods.
