Download and Install Fortnite on Any Android Device
The past few days have been a roller coaster for Epic Games, Google, and Apple. It all started when Epic introduced a new Fortnite update that circumvented the payment systems of Google and Apple, allowing the users to buy V-Bucks and other similar in-game purchases directly from Epic, saving the money at the same time since both Apple and Google charge a 30% cut for any in-app purchase made.
Apple was quick to take notice and removed Fortnite from the App Store, and in return, Fortnite proceeded to file a legal complaint against Apple. Hours later, Google followed suit and removed Fortnite from Google Play Store, as well.
Needless to say, the past few days have been upside down and at the moment, there is absolutely no way you can play Fortnite on your Apple device in case you don't have it installed already. if you want to, there are people selling their iPads on eBay for ridiculous prices but at least you get Fortnite pre-installed on it.
With that said, while there is no way to currently have Fortnite on Apple devices, Android devices are not as strict. Despite the removal, there are still a number of ways and we are going to find out how you can do that.
