Nvidia Brings GeForce Now Cloud Gaming to iPhones, Teases Fortnite's Return to iOS

From PC Mag: Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, GeForce Now, can now be enjoyed on iOS devices.

On Thursday, the company launched a beta for GeForce Now that can be run on the Safari browser for Apple’s iOS operating system. “That means more than 5 million GeForce Now members can now access the latest experience by launching Safari from iPhone or iPad and visiting play.geforcenow.com,” Nvidia said in today’s announcement.

The caveat is you’ll need a gamepad, such as the Razer Kishi controller, to play games over the iOS beta. At the same time, keyboard-and-mouse-only games won’t be available “due to hardware limitations,” the company said.

By offering the iOS beta, Nvidia is promising the return of a hit game to iPhones and iPads: Epic Games’ Fortnite. Back in August, the title was pulled from the iOS App Store over a legal dispute between its developer, Epic Games and Apple. As a result, Fortnite players on iOS have been saddled with an older version of the game that can no longer receive updates.
