Fortnite has today rolled its latest patch 7.30 and finally, iOS and Android users have both received the much-awaited controller support on their respective platforms. According to TouchArcade, the patch also adds 60fps support for select Android smartphones, including Galaxy Note 9, Huawei Honor View 20, and Huawei Mate 20 X.
Although the initial reports for the patch hinted at some major improvements for the Switch version, the actual update has offered a lot more for smartphones, such as the Chiller Grenade and the Solid Gold LTM.
On iOS, MFi controllers will now be supported, including the Steelseries Nimbus and Gamevice. On Android, most Bluetooth controller adapters are supported like Gamevice, Razer Raiju, Moto Gamepad, and more. When a controller is attached, vibration is disabled:
“On Android, there’s more good news. 60hz is now an option on select phones. It is great to finally have controller support after a while where it seemed like it wasn’t happening. With 60fps and controller support, the mobile version soaring ahead of the Nintendo Switch version once again.”
