Apple Employees Get a Sneak Peek at Apple Arcade Gaming Subscription

Apple is running an internal early access program for Apple Arcade in which Apple employees can try the service for a monthly fee of only 0.49$.

Game subscription services are all the rage, providing gamers access to large catalogs of titles for a flat fee. 9to5Mac further reported that users will be asked to start the one-month free subscription at the beginning and then they can click the Get button to download and play the game. The early access program is open to Apple employees for the beta test. The service will offer support for traditional gaming controllers, such as those used on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The service is expected to have more than 100 games available, including a number of titles exclusive to the platform. But what we didn't know is how much it will actually cost.

Apple Arcade is Apple's new gaming subscription service, offering cross-platform gaming on the Mac, iOS, and Apple TV.

But the company recorded $1 billion in productivity losses for fiscal 2019 on disruptions to production at its copper and iron ore operations.

Needless to say, but it is going to be an interesting fall with the new iPhone that will be released, new Apple Watches, possibly new iPad Pros and Macs that will also be released, and how Apple TV+ is going to play out for them when it launches.

Apple has yet to make an official announcement as to when the Apple Arcade service will launch to the public. And I'm sure most Arcade subscribers will play a lot more games than that in a month.

Second - while free games tend to be more popular than paid ones in the App Store -, majority don't even come close to the quality of apps with price tags. Additional information such as the age rating, category, and size of the game can be found in an info bar below the fold, followed by the rest of the page which is like any other App store product page.

Apple has worked with developers to ensure that huge games with stunning high definition graphics will still work on the iPhone. Apple said in March that more than 1 billion people have downloaded games from the App Store, which now hosts more than more than 300,000 games. Instead, with the service, Apple aims to offer users a gaming subscription service that's available on the mobile, desktop, and even the living room.
