Apple's (AAPL) Arcade gaming subscription service that was first announced in March will likely be priced at $4.99 per month, according to a report from Apple watching website 9to5Mac. The website said the price information was available in the interface used by an App Store app for the new service.
The platform will give users access to 100 new and exclusive games that will be playable across the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. Users who do not have a subscription will be able to download individual games from the App Store. Arcade is part of a slew of new services Apple announced earlier this year as it deals with slowing iPhone growth.
Apple is expected to hold a special event on Sept. 10 when it will unveil the next generation of its iPhones; 9to5Mac also expects the company to officially announce the pricing for Apple Arcade and other details at that time.
An internal early access program for Arcade currently allows Apple employees to sign up for the service for 49 cents a month with a one-month free trial, according to 9to5Mac. The testing program will reportedly end with the launch of iOS 13, which is expected to happen after the September iPhone event.
Apple shares were up 2.5% to $211.59 Monday.
