When the “Sign in with Apple” feature is disabled, users may not be able to play Fortnite, even if they have the game installed on their device.
Epic Games has just announced that Fortnite is about to disable the Apple account login feature, possibly starting September 11. There is a risk that users will not be able to play Fortnite, even if they have the game installed on their device, and cannot access their data.
Epic Games has just announced that Fortnite is about to disable the ability to sign in with an Apple account, possibly as early as 9/11.
Previously, the “Sign in with Apple” feature supported players to log into the game without having to register a separate account with an email address and password. Instead, players will log in with an Apple ID.
After Apple removed Fortnite from the app store, and locked Epic Games’ developer accounts, many people also predicted that the “Apple house” would block the intermediate login feature, though it is unclear exactly when.
The Fortnite Twitter account advises players to stay logged in: “If you are currently using“ Sign in with Apple ”, make sure to update the email and password for the account.
Last month, Epic launched its own payment system to avoid losing the 30% fee for Apple’s app store . So Apple removed Fortnite from its app store. However, if you just stop there, those who have Fortnite installed on your device can still play.
Epic filed a lawsuit against Apple on August 13, with the view that it was only trying to provide players with a savings payment option. In contrast, Apple has just filed a reverse Epic Games lawsuit, asking the developer to compensate for damages.
Apple commented: “Although Epic describes itself as a modern Robin Hood, it is in fact a multibillion-dollar business, wanting to be free for the tremendous value received from the App Store … This unauthorized behavior cannot be ignored “.
