Fortnite for Mac System Requirements

Not all Mac devices can run Fortnite, especially with the recent updates. But technically, the Fortnite can run on minimum system requirements similar to that of Windows. So generally, here are the minimum system requirements.

  • Intel HD 4000
  • Core i3 2.4 GHz
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Mac OS X Sierra (or above)

Typically, the iMac at 27inch can run the game perfectly fine. The 15inch Mac Book Pro and the Mac Pro can also run the game.

The 13inch Mac Book Air from 2013 is the weakest Mac device, and it can run the game at an average of 24FPS. That is, of course, if it has updated to Mac OS X already. Otherwise, you will need to update it first to the minimum Mac OS version. All other Mac devices older than that or has weaker hardware than that will not be able to run the game.

It would also be best if you run the game without any background apps running or at least keep the background apps to a minimum. Keep in mind that they could still be using hardware resources and that will hinder your Mac device to run the game at its optimum performance entirely. This is highly advised especially for those earlier released Mac devices.
