As the next step in the war with Epic Games, Apple is disabling the “Sign In with Apple” authentication system for users of Epic Games products. This will happen tomorrow, September 11, 2020, so if you used your Apple ID to sign in to games, please update your Epic Games account settings accordingly.
Interestingly, the message about the disabled functionality came from Epic Games, not Apple:
Apple will no longer allow users to sign into Fortnite using “Sign In with Apple” as soon as September 11, 2020. If you used “Sign In with Apple”, please make sure your email and password are up to date. https://t.co/T0Rq0tfrR7

Apple will no longer allow users to sign into Epic Games accounts using “Sign In with Apple” as soon as September 11, 2020. If you used “Sign In with Apple”, please make sure your email and password are up to date. https://t.co/4XZX5g0eaf

To update your Epic Games email address, you must sign in to your Epic Games account with your Apple ID, then go to the General Settings page and update your email address.
For those who have used Sign In with Apple, chances are they did not have a password created for their Epic Games account – this should be done immediately after updating their email.
Epic Games representatives promised to help users who failed to complete these steps – for this you need to write to support.
