Apple Arcade: Everything you need to know about Apple’s gaming service

Apple Arcade is a gaming subscription service from Apple, which works across the likes of iPad, iPhone, Mac and other devices from the company. 

Trusted Reviews has compiled everything you need to know about Apple Arcade including all the latest news, release date, pricing, games and more.

What is Apple Arcade?

Apple Arcade is a video game subscription service which gains you access to over 180 titles on iOS devices for a monthly fee. That means you can swap between the likes of your iPhone 12 and MacBook Air, picking up right where you left off. 

Games currently available on Apple Arcade include Sonic Racing, Cut the Rope Remastered and NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition. Apple also recently revealed a new Timeless Classics category, which features the likes of Tiny Crossword, Really Bad Chess and Sudoku Simple.

Every title in the subscription service is playable offline, so you’ll be able to keep on gaming whether you’re on underground on the Tube or up in the sky on a plane. Such an approach is very different to Google Stadia, which streams games online via the cloud. 

Apple Arcade has no adverts, and games will be fully featured from launch so there will be no DLC arriving at a later date demanding extra money. Apple also confirmed there will be no ad tracking within the service, prioritising user privacy.

Apple Arcade Price – How much does Apple Arcade cost?

Apple Arcade is $4.99/£4.99 per month, and new users can gain access to a one month free trial at launch. Given both the quality and quantity of experiences available on Apple Arcade, that’s quite an impressive price if you own a handful of Apple devices.
