Apple Arcade Being Tested by Employees for $0.49 Per Month

9to5Mac’s Guilherme Rambo shares some screenshots of Apple Arcade being tested by the iPhone maker’s employees, currently being charged $0.49 USD per month after a free month trial:

Apple is currently running an internal early access program for its employees, charging a small subscription of $0.49/mo, with one month free trial. It says the testing program ends with the launch of iOS 13.

Today, 9to5Mac was able to gain access to this Apple Arcade early testing program on the Mac App Store. The process starts with a welcome page that highlights some of the content available through the subscription. It’s likely the page will be very similar when the product launches, presumably with the release of iOS 13 to the public in mid-September.


Apple Arcade has a design similar to the Mac App Store, with its sidebar.

The following game titles are being highlighted by Apple Arcade:

  • Way of the Turtle
  • Down in Bermuda
  • Hot Lava
  • Sneaky Sasquatch
  • Kings of the Castle
  • Frogger in Toy Town
  • Lame Game 2

When Apple first announced Apple Arcade, the company said over 100+ games would be available at launch for the subscription service, which still has not revealed its monthly or annual price.
