When you play Fortnite mobile on iOS 13 with 3 or 4 finger claw technique, there’s a weird glitch as a result of the multi-touch gesture setting that causes the editing bar (undo/redo/cut/copy/paste) to pop up unexpectedly.
How does the iOS 13 Gesture Bar Interrupt Gameplay?
The gesture bar shows up when you tap your screen with 3 or more fingers. This can interrupt mobile gameplay and can be quite frustrating as it momentarily freezes your ability to control the game.
The ability to use both the thumbs and index fingers to perform three or more actions simultaneously while playing (such as Move, Fire, Look, or Crouch) is very important for mobile gamers that play with the 3 or 4 finger claw technique.
Since there was no way to turn this setting off in iOS 13, the bar has all but ruined the experience for claw style mobile players.
There has been a significant amount of backlash from the mobile gaming community online.
Thankfully, Apple is a large company and is therefore able to make improvements quickly.
With the launch of iOS 13.1 in September as well as subsequent releases of 13.2 and 13.3, Apple has added “improvements and bug fixes” which fix the problem.
If you wait to upgrade your device, however, the problem will continue until you upgrade.
SOLUTION: In iOS 13, there is no way to turn the setting off. The only way to fix this is to upgrade your device.
If you’re a visual learner, the video below demonstrates the problem and how to resolve it.
