Apple Arcade is a $4.99/month subscription service that gives users access to 100 or more mobile games.
According to Ars Technica, none of the games are microtransaction-driven titles. They are all premium titles, and many are from prestigious designers and studios like Zach Gage (SpellTower, Really Bad Chess), Snowman (Alto’s Odyssey), Dinosaur Polo Club (Mini Metro), The Gentlebros (Cat Quest), and more. The update comes as part of Apple’s IOS 13 update that includes a system-wide Dark Mode interface as well as new features to the Photos, Maps, and Safari apps, and completely overhauls the Reminders app. It also introduces “Sign in with Apple,” a sign-in method for apps and websites that Apple claims is focused on user privacy.
