This week’s Fortnite update has a lot for iOS players with multitasking on iPad and a new party center. Fortnite recently added a new Rift zone, a new LTM and a 60 fps playability on iPhone X models. Today, patch 10.31 has begun to be implemented on all platforms and has two additional great features for iOS players.
If you play on iPad, you will love this update. I am quite surprised that multitasking has been added here and not to a game like Hearthstone, where having another application open really makes sense. If you missed details of season X, read this.
Party Hub is a new feature that allows you to see who is online, chat by voice, have fun and play with friends on your mobile. You can access this when you start Fortnite on mobile devices. As of now, the feature is only available on mobile devices.
On iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and later versions, you can now multitask while playing Fortnite following the patch notes. If you enable screen rotation, you can play horizontally and vertically. If the rotation lock is activated, it will be vertical.
