How to subscribe to the Apple Arcade and can you try it for free?

  • Open the App Store and locate the subscribe tab
  • Click on the subscription button
  • If you’re trying it for the first time then you are eligible to get a free trial for a month that can be shared among 5 members.

Can I start a subscription without a credit card?

As per the rules, a credit card is mandatory while going through the process. The card is linked to your Apple ID and whenever you make any purchase, the card is used as the payment method.

Can we play the Apple Arcade games on any other device?

Unfortunately, the subscription can’t be used on any other devices as it is exclusive to Apple Devices. Moreover, the subscription is generally made through the App Store or the Arcade app which is exclusive to Apple products and their respective OS and can’t run on other platforms.
