If you are running the iOS 13 Beta then you are in luck. Apple Arcade has gone live early for the 1-month trial access for the service which means you can get your hands on some of the exclusive games offered on the new gaming service.

Apple Arcade costs R89,99 per month in South Africa for access and includes the Family Plan in the package. This means that everyone under your account will be able to use the gaming subscription without any extra costs. Keep in mind that the service also offers games with no in-game purchases and they can all be played offline too.

At launch, there are around 50 games to download including the ones shown off during the iPhone 11 reveal event last week. Hot Lava, Frogger in Toy Town, LEGO Brawl, Sayonara Wild Hearts, and Rayman Mini just to name a few. These games are all exclusive to the platform while a few like Cat Quest 2 are not. However, you would usually have to pay for this app but if you are an Apple Arcade subscriber, you will get them for free.

The service is currently only available in the iOS 13 beta program which includes the current iOS 13.1 too. If you want to get in on the action you will need to upgrade to the current beta software which is running pretty smooth in preparation for its 20 September release date.

Apple Arcade works across iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac, and Apple TV and your saves and progression will carry across all your devices. Head over to the official Apple announcement on the news page for more information on the games on offer. Apple Arcade will launch this Friday when iOS 13 rolls out for everyone in South Africa and beyond.
