How to start your free Apple Arcade subscription on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Arcade is up and running, and if you are a gamer you will be pleased to know that you get to play it for free for a month before deciding whether or not you want to pay the $4.99/month subscription fee. This means you and your family (you can share with up to 5 family members with a single subscription through Family Sharing) can play over 50 games, with new games arriving weekly.
