After its presentation at the last March conference that Apple completely dedicated to its new services, and after a small update on its launch in the September keynote, Apple Arcade is already beginning its journey. For just a few hours, the subscription service for games has begun to be available on some devices. It is even possible to start enjoying the trial subscription that is offered with the service.
As they taught from Apple in the past, Apple Arcade is a subscription that for 4.99 euros per month allow us to access an extensive library of exclusive video games for the whole family. For now, and in the absence of three days of the official launch, 54 games from various developers are available, with the intention of adding more options to the catalog every week. In fact, Apple confirmed that more than 100 games were in development for the service.
In addition, we find that the games available in Apple Arcade will be available exclusively on this platform, at least on mobile devices. In this way, those of Cupertino ensure an important differentiating factor compared to other competing services such as Google Play Pass. And of course, we can access all the contents from our iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV or Mac with iOS 13 or macOS Catalina, with the possibility of sharing it with our iCloud family.

For now, to access the service it is necessary to have the beta version of iOS 13.1 or with the GM of iOS 13, which will be available on September 19. It also works with the betas of iPadOS 13, although the same does not seem to happen on Apple TV with tvOS 13. When we have access, we will only have to confirm the subscription and enjoy a free month with lots of fantastic games. And if it doesn't convince you, you just have to cancel the automatic renewal.
