Apple Arcade was officially announced at the press event today and will be available through the App Store on Thursday, September 19 with the release of iOS 13. At just $4.99 per month, users will get unlimited access to the entire catalog of over 100 new, exclusive games, all playable across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV.

Best of all, every Apple Arcade game can all be played offline, and a single $4.99 / month subscription includes access for up to six family members with Family Sharing. The catalog will exceed 100 games in the coming weeks as new titles are introduced, with more added every month. Apple Arcade will be available on September 30 on iPadOS / tvOS 13 and during October for macOS Catalina users.
“We think customers of all ages are going to be delighted that a single subscription gives the whole family unlimited access to the full catalog of amazing Apple Arcade games, all without any ads or additional purchases, while knowing every game must meet Apple’s high privacy standards,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
