How to download Fortnite on iOS
The first thing you should know is that, until the game comes to mobile officially, Epic still must make numerous tests of performance and compatibility, especially considering that there will be cross-match between PC, Xbox One and mobile versions .
For this they have prepared a test for iOS that will start today, March 12, and that has no end date. The event will be, for the moment, closed by invitation, so you will not be able to download it if Epic Games or a friend who has the game invites you to try it.
The easiest way to get it is by entering your data on the page of the Invitation Event of iOS for ‘Fortnite’ , which will guarantee that sooner or later you will receive different codes so you can download ‘Fortnite’ from the App Store and invite your friends to do the same.

Why is the arrival of Fortnite to mobile important?
Epic Games does not want to miss anything in its fight with ‘PUBG’ and, with ‘Fortnite’ reaching as many users as possible, that is a fight they have almost won. The idea is that this version of ‘Fortnite’ is identical to consoles and PC, which means being able to have the game always at hand at any time.
It also does so from a single and closed platform, so what you pay on PC will serve for the other devices and, in the same way, everything you get playing on mobile will also be transferred to your account when you play from the console.
