Apple will be officially dating and pricing its two big upcoming subscription services next month during the September event but the pricing has already leaked. According to 9to5Mac, the company plans on using a flat rate of $9.99 for its Apple TV+ and $5 for Apple Arcade.
Apple will apparently release the arcade gaming subscription for free with a one-month trial after which it will cost you $4.99. This will also include the use of the service through your Family Sharing account.
As for Apple TV+, Bloomberg reports it will cost $9.99 when it launches in November. There is no word yet if the company will host a free trial period.
The service will launch with five shows: The Morning Show featuring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon; See featuring Aquaman’s Jason Momoa; a production called Truth Be Told with actress Octavia Spencer; Steven Spielberg’s revival of Amazing Stories; and a documentary series called Home.
Apple is pumping a lot of money into both its TV and gaming service spending hundreds of millions of dollars on each show. The company pledged a $1 billion investment two years ago but reported it plans on now spending $6 billion on original content just for Apple TV+ alone.
The company will have some tough competition later this year as Disney+ also plans on releasing its $6 service around the same time.
The company will host a rather detailed event next month where the company plans on revealing the new iPhone 11 lineup as well as the upcoming TV and gaming services. If new games and shows have been made, they will be revealed there too.
