Apple Arcade is Apple's video game service that launched in the fall. A five dollar monthly subscription gets you access to tons of games, which can be quite addictive for youngsters and adults alike as we've seen with the recent Fortnite craze. If you don't want your kid playing games all day long or playing with other people online or making inn-app purchases, Screen Time will let you set these restrictions.
Apple Arcade offers unlimited access to over 100 titles with a free trial and monthly subscription. Most titles support the use of a gaming controller, which brings the Apple Arcade experience closer to that of dedicated gaming consoles. Even regular App Store games can be easier to play with a controller, instead of touching the screen or using the Apple TV remote.
Apple Arcade launched with over 100 games and a monthly subscription price that provides unlimited access to them all. Games can be played on the Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and more, all for $4.99 per month. For anyone who's interested, Apple offers a one-month free trial. Apple has invited developers to push the limits of gaming for their titles in Apple Arcade. Now that the service has been around for a while, Apple has revealed the Top Apple Arcade Games of 2019.
Minecraft Earth has launched its early access version to the App Store in the US and other countries. The title follows the tremendous success of augmented reality (AR) game Pokémon Go on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With Minecraft Earth, fans of the game can build structures overlaying the real world using their mobile device's camera and display.
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.
