Nvidia stock gains after 'Fortnite' joins GeForce cloud gaming service, paving a return to Apple devices

  - Nvidia (NVDA +2.8%) plans to add Epic Games' Fortnite to its GeForce Now cloud gaming service.

  - The inclusion would allow Fortnite to run through the Safari browser on Apple devices without appearing in the App Store.

  - Apple banned Fortnite after Epic tried to get around the tech giant's 30% in-app payment "tax" with its own in-app payment system. The dispute has led to a legal battle.

  - Nvidia's GeForce is currently available on Mac, Windows, Android, and Chromebook computers.

  - Nvidia wouldn't comment to CNBC about whether Fortnite would eventually make it back to iOS through a GeForce version, but the company did say "Fortnite is not confirmed for GeForce Now on platforms beyond PC, Mac and Android."
