"GeForce Now will serve as an official workaround for iOS users, but I believe that a reaction from Apple is imminent, which could possibly lead to blocking or diminishing the quality of the service on Safari", he warned in a blog post.
According to reports, Nvidia also has plans of broadening support for its desktop Chrome-based version of GeForce NOW, that only works on Chromebooks now, to more platforms like Android, Linux and Mac by the first quarter of 2021. Nvidia said that change "will delay availability of the game".More news: Pfizer and BioNTech will seek regulatory clearance of their coronavirus vaccine
This will be frustrating news for Apple, which banned Fortnite - and other Epic titles - from iPhone and iPad after Epic broke Apple's rules by offering in-app purchases outside of the App Store.

Nvidia's game streaming service GeForce NOW will be launched today as a web app on iOS Safari-and it'll eventually bring back Fortnite to Apple devices. "Alongside the fantastic team at Epic Games, we're working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite, which will delay the availability of the game", reads the blog post.
Apple and Google then retaliated and removed Fortnite from their respective App Stores, prompting Epic to file a lawsuit against Apple. NVIDIA says it's also been working on latency improvements, with some of those rolled out already and others still in the pipeline. That, plus Geforce Now, is a recipe for some good mobile gaming, that's for sure.
Being able to stream full-fledged PC games to your iPhone-and perhaps more importantly, your iPad-will be a big deal for players like yours truly who disdain the microtransaction-infused, roadblock-filled world of mobile gaming. We'd expect it to function seamlessly for the most part, but because it's not officially launched yet, don't be surprised if you run into some kinks. Both of those games come from GOG's sister company, CD Projekt Red.More news: Medvedev: No Flashbacks to Nadal Heartbreak
