King of the hill

For the week of May 7th to 13th, Epic's Fortnite was finally taken off top as King's evergreen hit Candy Crush Saga reclaimed the top grossing spot on the iPhone App Store. Fortnite in fact slipped down to third, with Jam City's Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery taking second place.

The free iPhone downloads chart didn't see much change at the top, with Voodoo's Helix Jump and Super Tapx's Love Balls hanging on to the top spots. Fornite came in at fourth again, while PUBG Mobile fell another five places to 19th as it struggles to match Fortnite's UK performance.
