"If you have previously used Sign In with Apple, please update your Epic Games account email address and password immediately so that you can still log in after Sept. 11, 2020," said the company. 

It also explained that if users could not update their email address prior to Sign In with Apple support ending, they could still recover their accounts by contacting Epic Games. They need to provide the verification code they've received in their emails. 

"The verification code you received should look like this: ABC-123-DEF," added the company.  

Apple Users must also create their passwords

If you're using Apple ID right from the start, your Epic Games account indeed has no password. Since the game requires its customers to use their emails, they also need to create their passwords. Here's how you can do it.

1) Go to Epic Games official page and log in using your Apple ID. Navigate to the "Change Your Password" page to create a password. 

2) If you've failed to do this before Apple ID's removal, you need to follow the steps on the Epic games Forgot Password page. Take note; you can only do this if your email address is correct.  

What Epic Games Say about Apple's restriction

The company said that the decision of Apple is unfair on Epic Games and its customers. It also described the smartphone manufacturer as a "behemoth" seeking to block competition, stifle innovation, and control markets.
