Apple on Tuesday revealed the company’s upcoming fall lineup of updated devices, including a trio of new iPhones, a more versatile iPad and an updated Apple Watch that attempts to mimic its more analog counterparts by showing you the time, all the time. It also made more clear what customers can expect from its upcoming Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ services when they launch with less than a full roster of games and shows to enjoy as soon as September.
Apple opened by discussing Apple TV+, its original streaming video subscription service, and Apple Arcade, its game subscription service. Both are priced at $4.99 per month, and available to up to six of your family members thanks to Family Sharing, which shares purchases like apps, music, and now subscriptions among registered family members.
With Apple TV+, available November 1, customers can expect shows and films from well-known actors and directors including Jason Momoa, Alfre Woodard, M. Night Shyamalan, and Oprah Winfrey, among others. Apple’s planning to add more shows and films each month, and says certain shows kicking off its Apple TV+ service will premiere with three episodes and release a new one each week, while other series will be made available all at once.
Apple Arcade, available September 19, will offer over 100 games to play, all without ads or in-app p
