Epic Games has enabled 60 FPS gameplay in Fortnite for the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max in the game's latest update. The option is available on just those three iPhones currently, but there is no word yet as to whether Epic Games plans to bring the higher FPS option to older iPhones like the iPhone X. Oddly, the company had not included the tweak in its v. 6.31 release notes and instead left it up to the Senior PR Manager, Nick Chester, to confirm on Twitter that it had brought 60 FPS gaming to the latest iPhones.

Unfortunately, there is currently no such option for Fortnite on Android. By contrast, PUBG Mobile has been running at 60 FPS on the iPhone XRXS and XS Max for a few months, while it even averaged 40 FPS in beta on the Galaxy Note 9 during our tests. It remains to be seen whether Epic Games plans to roll out the 60 FPS option to Android either.

Have you noticed smoother gameplay in Fortnite with 60 FPS enabled on the iPhone XRXS and XS Max? Let us know in the comments.
