Fortnite iOS App Adds 120 FPS Gameplay for iPad Pro Third Generation

If you have the newer iPad Pro models, then you are going to love this new Fortnite iOS update that gives you much better gameplay. The iPad Pro third generation and above all use the A12X Bionic chip developed by Apple. Fortnite is finally going to be taking advantage of what this chip has to offer by now giving you even better frame rate graphics. Instead of being limited to the 60 FPS like before, with this update you can now enjoy 120 FPS. This is all possible due to the ProMotion technology that is used behind the screen.

With the new 120 FPS, you’ll notice a huge difference when you’re playing Fortnite on an iPad Pro third-generation or newer. The graphics are going to be much better, and what we mean is that it’s going to make the images much smoother looking on the screen. Since the images are now being shown in twice the normal rate, it’s going to help increase your enjoyment during gameplay on those devices.
