Fortnite mobile players beware: don’t update to iOS 13
Bad news Fortnite fans: those who have upgraded to iOS 13 on their iPhone have seen sweeping bugs make the game almost unplayable.
Reports mention that the triple-finger tap-and-hold gesture has stopped working after updating to iOS 13. The gesture, which Apple uses to edit text, conflicts with the game’s code (despite the fact that there are no visible text fields in Fortnite).
The bug breaks many games that preclude players having three or more fingers on the screen.
Fortnite rival PUBG is also having issues with the error. It has released a statement saying it is aware of the problems, and has gotten in touch with Apple to rectify them.
“We have already raised the issue with Apple, and we will continue working with them to resolve the issue. We suggest players who play the game with 3 or more fingers do not upgrade to iOS 13 until this issue is resolved.”
