Apple Arcade Is A Netflix-Like Subscription Service But For iPhone Games

Apple Arcade Is A Netflix-Like Subscription Service But For iPhone Games”

Consisting of Apple Music, Apple Pay, AppleCare+, the App Store, iTunes and more, the race to hit $50 billion will be helped by the trio of new subscription services that Apple announced last Monday: Apple News+, Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade (starting this fall). Cashback will be higher for purchases made at Apple's own stores such as the App Store, and lower for those stores which do not accept Apple Pay, both online and instore. You will receive a physical titanium card upon signing up, though there is no credit card number, CVV, expiration date or signature, as that information is stored directly in the Apple Wallet app.

Keep this in mind when considering the card. "When using the card via Apple Pay, users will quickly be able to see where and how they spend their money without the use of a third-party app". "By contrast, you don't need to use Uber to get high-end cash back from the Uber Visa Card (notably: 4% at restaurants)".

Apple's latest keynote, the Show Time event, brought with it big news on an array of products and services coming to the company's slew of devices.

While some New Zealanders have voluntarily surrendered guns, others have been buying more to beat the ban. She defended New Zealand's record on accepting refugees, saying: "We are a welcoming country".

As with all Apple product announcements (and, really, all credit cards), the important question to ask is: Is this product right for you?

The new MasterCard-branded credit card that Apple introduced this week has gotten a lot of attention, much of it for things that the card doesn't have. He points out that the Apple Card's rewards are less attractive than the Citigroup Inc benefits which they offer with their Double Cash Card. It's fairly straightforward and potentially enticing, depending on your spending habits. Apple won't charge users for the card itself and there isn't a penalty fee if the card needs to be replaced. That led some observers to speculate Apple would penalize late payers by raising their interest rates. For example, rewards from the Apple Card will be paid through the Apple Pay Cash account.

But there's another aspect Apple hopes will set it apart from other rewards programs: you get those rewards each day.

Arsene Wenger makes Arsenal tactics revelation as Napoli clash looms

You can then put those funds towards your overall balance, or use it like cash for future purchases.

"We think the breadth and quality of publications within Apple News+ will encourage more people to discover stories and titles they may never have come across before", she said. Similar to Apple's News+ and TV+ services, Arcade will offer an all-you-can-eat buffet of games for a single monthly subscription fee.

We can only speculate this type of conversations took place in the Apple boardroom because we were recently greeted with just that, an Apple credit card.
