[How-To] Download & install Fortnite Mobile on Unsupported iOS Devices

How To Get Fortnite for Battle Royale on Unsupported iOS Device? Fortnite for Battle Royale has been launched by Epic Games and the players won’t stop crooning over it. The game had already flipped past all popularity levels even when it was undergoing development. Now, since the game has been released, few players who were lucky enough to get early access invites have claimed that the game is a masterpiece. Completely free to play and just requiring a sign up, there is absolutely no reason that you don’t want to play this game unless your iOS device is unsupported.

As of now, the game runs on iPhone 6S and up operating on iOS 11 or later versions. But, no need to get sad as you can still enjoy the game on your iOS device even if it is not fulfilling the above said parameters. Check out the method provided below to add your device into the list of supported devices for Fortnite.

[How-To] Play Fortnite Mobile on Unsupported iOS Devices

  • First of all, please download Filza Escaped File Manager on your iOS device from the provided link. You need to make sure that your device is running on iOS 11. In case, your iOS device doesn’t supports iOS 11 operating system then this method won’t work.
  • Once you have downloaded and installed the respective file manager please navigate to the following path: /var/containers/Bundle/Application/Fortnite/FortniteClient.app/
  • At the end of this path you will find a file named as Info.plist.
  • Please open up root and navigate to “UISupportedDevices” and you can enter in your device in this list. Thereafter, please save the plist file.
  • Post saving the file it is required that you reboot your iOS device and re-launch the game again. I am sure the game will start working if you have followed the above mentioned steps correctly.

Fortnite Mobile Game Play on Unsupported iOS Devices


However, I will like to add that even though you are able to play the game on your unsupported iOS device the graphics won’t be as good as on supported devices. Moreover, the game requires at least 2 GB of RAM to work perfectly. Hence, it is better to upgrade to a new iOS device which fulfills the requirements to experience the game in a better fashion.

Any questions or queries are highly welcomed. Please drop the same in comment section below and we will get back to you with the required answers on priority basis.

  1.

  2. Thanks so much! Just one question, when it says write in your device into the uiunsupported devices I don’t what to write I have an iPad Air 1 can you please tell me what I sould write to match my device? Thanks!

  3. Uuuh, UISupportedDevices doesn’t exist anywhere in the files. Is there any other way to do it on the 7th of may 2018? Thanks in advance.

  4. Fixing all your issue here. if you are unable to use filza, go back to 11.2, to do the fortnite files now, because they dont have the UISupportedDevices, simply find the UIMinimumRequirements and delete the lines that have arm64 and metal.
    good luck

  5. I do not understand :
    Please open up root and navigate to “UISupportedDevices” and you can enter in your device in this list. Thereafter, please save the plist file ?

  6. Excuse i have an ipad air one and followed all the previous steps but when i found the “UISUPPORTED DEVICES” found 25 items and they are all numbered ipads for example “ipad4,1” and then i wrote in one of them ipad air but nothing happened so please someone tell me what should i write in there and i am wating for reply

    • You got to go to apple’s website for your iPad somewhere, or maybe in settings in like ‘about this iPhone’ or just search it up, they have different codes for the names of their products, I have a MacBook air 2016 and it is called ‘MacBookAir7,2’ in the hardware overview of the system report, and I remember seeing it somewhere on their website. I haven’t tried anything but I think it might work if you find the code for your device and put that instead, however that is quite old, are you sure it is on iOS 11, or is an iPad air first gen
