Developers have confirmed that updating to iOS 14 may lead to the removal of already installed Fortnite.
If you see a message asking to temporarily remove applications to install the software update (Temporarily Remove Apps to Install the Software Update?), you should not agree. Since Fortnite will be the first application to be removed, but not temporarily, but forever.
