Owners of iPhones and iPads will soon be able to play Fortnite again, via a cloud service, the BBC has discovered.

Nvidia has developed a version of its GeForce cloud gaming service that runs in the mobile web browser Safari.

Apple will not get a cut of virtual items sold within the battle royale fighting title when played this way.


Option:

It's so stupid for Apple to deny cloud gaming on iOS if there are coming a bunch of legal shortcuts.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Definitely impressive to see everything running natively in Safari, and awesome news for kids this Christmas that get new iPhones or iPads and want to play Fortnite.

But Apple controls the horizontal and the vertical here. Let's not pretend that Apple couldn't do away with Nvidia's streaming service in the browser if they chose to.

It's funny that Apple won't get any profit from this too.
