Gamers Can Now Play Fortnite at 120 fps on iPad Pro
Fortnite aficionados who use iPad Pro are in for a treat, as Epic Games’ latest update has unlocked the support for 120 fps (frames for second). Gamers can enjoy the benefit of this support only on the iPad Pro 11 (2018) and iPad Pro 12.9 (2018). Both the tablets feature the edge-to-edge Liquid Retina Display as well as the ProMotion technology that can automatically adjust the display refresh rate up to 120Hz, which Epic Games has taken advantage of for this update.
Gamers can enable the 120 fps mode on their iPad Pro by going to the video settings and changing the mobile frame-rate setting. When enabled, the graphics quality automatically switches to medium, and the resolution of Fortnite drops as well. Gamers lose out on the visual front but gain the benefit of speed and super-smooth gameplay, which allows them to score more.
Playing the game at a higher frame rate of 120 fps provides gamers an edge over their rivals, as more images get displayed on the screen in a second. For this reason, in the competitive gaming arena, professional gamers often sacrifice the graphics quality to obtain the ability to play the game at a higher framerate.

Moreover, the 120 fps update also offers iPad Pro users a slight advantage over their console counterparts. In comparison to the availability of the very high framerate mode on the two Apple tablets, the game’s Nintendo Switch version comes with a 30 fps limit; and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions cap the game’s performance at 60 fps.
The latest update from Epic Games has also added support for the thumbstick buttons (L3 and R3) on iOS 13 and above, which provides gamers (playing Fortnite using iPhone and iPad) more control parity with the console.
Fortnite, developed by Epic Games and released in 2017, comes in three different modes, Battle Royale, Save the World, and Creative. Epic Games first made the game available on the iOS mobile devices in March of 2018, saying, “Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to mobile devices.” A stable internet connection and iOS 11 or later are needed to play this hugely popular multiplayer game on Apple devices. It, however, does not run on all the models of the iPhone and iPad.
Gamers can play Fortnite on iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X; iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPad Pro. The game does not work on iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus; iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPod Touch. You can download Fortnite on the supported Apple devices from the App Store for free.
It is not the first time that Epic Games has unlocked support for a higher frame rate on an Apple device. In November of 2018, gamers got the option to run Fortnite at 60 fps on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. At the time of the release of the game on iOS devices, it could be played only in 30 fps mode. At 60 fps, gamers usually enjoy both high-quality graphics and smooth performance, while at 30 fps the graphics quality is “Epic.”
Now, thanks to the 120 fps mode option on iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9, Fortnite players can improve their performance, increase their score, and get a better result. And, if they encounter an issue while using their iPad, they can always get it fixed from a reputable service center like Rapid Repair that is known for reliable and safe iPad repairs.
