Apple Arcade will cost $4.99 per month and launch September 19th

Apple TV+ is being hailed as Apple's first all-original video subscription service, which will bring plenty of new options in quite a crowded online streaming marketplace. Check out more of our coverage from the Apple 2019 fall keynote here.

Apple Arcade also includes offline support, and access for up to six family members. "We think players of all ages are going to love Apple Arcade". And, in India, the subscription will cost only ₹99 per month whereas, in the U.S., the cost for Apple Arcade is $4.99 (₹358.57). As it already does with its Apple Music service, Apple also is offering a one-month free trial before committing customers to subscribe. The Cupertino giant is giving users access to over 100 game titles across 150+ countries across the globe.

However, it's possible that Apple Arcade could hold its own. But in a separate press release put out after Apple's presentation, the company announced 15 new games that will debut on Apple Arcade, including a new RPG from Square Enix. Instead of paying up front for each game, subscribers can download and play any Apple Arcade game right from the App Store's brand-new Arcade tab. The second, by Capcom, is an underwater platformer game.

Google Stadia, on the other hand, will offer casual gaming as well as heavy gaming titles like Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Doom (2016). While these two will focus on the AAA gaming scene, we'll see Apple focusing on more traditional and casual games.

The explanation is simple. It's based on how you normally play games by downloading them onto your device first. It is a cloud based gaming service.

The new Apple Watch is also available in a wider range of materials, including aluminium, stainless steel, ceramic, and the all-new titanium finish.

And when it comes to mobile gaming, Apple has for over a decade now managed to attract the cream of the mobile gaming crop. iPhone nearly single handedly made mobile gaming a viable option for developers, and will likely be offering tempting terms to continue to attract the best mobile gaming talent.

In India, that disparity is even more pronounced with Android dominating with 93.02% market share and iOS limited to 2.65%.
