Are you one of those affected by the news regarding Fortnite’s removal from the App Store and Google Play Store?
But just as when you thought that all hope is lost in playing Fortnite again on your preferred iOS device, it is not. You can still re-download the game on your iPhones and iPads granted you meet these two conditions:
- You previously downloaded the game on your iPad/iPhone
- You are using the same Apple ID you used to download the game before
With these conditions met, simply re-download the game by taking the following steps:
Step 1: Check your purchase history in the App Store
The App Store contains a section that lists all of your previous transactions on it. Having had installed the game before, you could expect to see Fortnite in the list of your previously bought games.
To check your transaction history in the platform, simply run the App Store. From there, click on your profile icon located at the top-right corner of the screen, then clicking on “Purchased,” followed by “My Purchases.”
Step 2: Look for Fortnite
Depending on how frequent your transactions with the App Store is, the list may be either long or short. Regardless, the next step is to find the game from the list that means having to scroll down the list.
Alternatively, you can make this step easier by choosing to search for the game specifically by typing the title letter-by-letter. Granted you’ve previously installed the game in the same device using the same account, it should appear instantaneously.
Step 3: Install the game
Having found the game in your account, the next step is to logically re-download the game in order to install it again.
Voila! You are now able to play Fortnite again in your existing Apple device.
