Services

Arcade

It will be available on September 19 in over 150 countries worldwide for only $4.99 a month in a family subscription. You can get the first month for free.

tv+

Apple tv+, also shown off first earlier this year, will be available beginning November 1st in over 100 countries at launch for also just $4.99 a month for the whole family.

tv+ is a subscription service for the newly produced Apple Originals like See, The Morning Show and more.

Also, when buying new Apple hardware like a new iPhone, iPad or Mac, you will get a whole year for free.
