Apple and Google might have removed Fortnite from the App Store and Play Store, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to download. If you’ve ever installed the game onto your iPhone or iPad before it was banned, you can reinstall the Fortnite app right now. Here’s how.

Before we begin, if you want to play the mobile version of Fortnite on Android, you can still download the app and manually install the game. It’s also available to Samsung Galaxy smartphone and tablet owners from the Galaxy Store.
