Epic Games has recently announced that some iOS devices can play Fortnite at 60 FPS. The first iOS devices compatible with the increased frame rates are the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. They said 60 FPS support for the iPad Pro would be available in the next update of the game.
Those who own the above devices can play Fortnite with higher FPS, which ensures a smoother and more stable gaming experience. You can increase the fps to 60 in the game settings menu. Some devices generate more heat because they consume more battery power and also use more RAM. Epic says that they still maintain the default frame rate of the game at 30. They argue that the frame at 60 would consume more battery life.
Epic has experimented with the new frame rate to keep the device from overheating and affect the smoothness of the game on iOS.
“The high frame rate is great, but if it only lasts for a few minutes it’s silly,” the developer wrote.
This is also why Epic has not applied 60 FPS to the Fortnite version on Android. Unlike iOS, Android phones are made by a lot of developers, using different components, so they have different quality.
“Our team is optimizing Android with phone manufacturers, hoping we will support 60 FPS on high-end Android devices.”
Fortnite is a famous third-person shooter game on PC. The game was released last September by Epic Games. Fortnite has gameplay quite similar to PUBG, but Epic Games also know how to make their game more different. In the game, 100 players are dropped on an island to find a way to survive. Their task is to find weapons, fight to become the last stand.
Fortnite can now be played on platforms such as Windows, Xbox, PS4, and macOS. Unlike the mobile version of PUBG has been released for both iOS and Android platforms at the same time, Fortnite pushed to iOS before. Fortnite lovers who use the Android operating system have long waited. Additionally, Fortnite for Android devices will not be distributed on the Google Play store, which is provided directly through the game’s homepage.
After a period of exclusivity on the Samsung Galaxy S9, you can play it without any difficulty. Please download the game here.
