How to view a list of upcoming Apple Arcade games

To see a list of upcoming Apple Arcade titles, hit the Arcade tab in the App Store on your device, then scroll down and touch the option See All Games. Click Filters at the top to narrow the list by release date, then turn on the Coming Soon filter.

Apple may remove tiles from the catalog due to poor engagement or when contracts expire. Removed titles are available on Arcade for two more weeks.

How to get Apple Arcade for free

Apple Arcade gives you access to a growing library of over 200 games on your iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. All titles available on the service come without ads, tracking and in-app purchases. Apple Arcade costs $5/month after a free one-month trial. The service is included in all Apple One subscription bundles.

You get three free months of Apple Arcade with a new iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV purchase. More info about Apple Arcade is available at

Apple Arcade isn’t a game-streaming service like Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming. Instead, you must download each title to run it locally on your device.

Many titles in the Apple Arcade catalog support the latest Sony and Microsoft controllers, as well as Nintendo’s Joy-Con and Switch Pro, 8BitDo joypads and other MFi-certified controllers like SteelSeries’s’ Nimbus and Stratus.
