How to join Apple Arcade

Apple Arcade is a subscription service that gives you and your family unlimited access to an extensive catalog of premium games that you can play across all of your devices — online or offline.

Join Apple Arcade
  1. On your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, go to the Arcade tab of the App Store and look for the subscription offer. On your Apple TV, open the Arcade app to see the subscription offer.

  2. If you don't see the subscription offer, try to download an Apple Arcade game, and you'll be prompted to subscribe.

  3. Choose the trial subscription offer. (One trial per Apple ID.) With Family Sharing, you can get access to Apple Arcade for yourself and up to five family members. If you're using Family Sharing and someone in your family group subscribes, you'll see a message that you have access to the subscription when you try to subscribe.

  4. Sign in with the Apple ID that you use for Media & Purchases, if prompted. If you don't have an Apple ID, follow the prompts to create one. Not sure if you have an Apple ID?

  5. Confirm your billing information, if prompted. You might need to add a valid payment method.

  6. Agree to the terms and conditions, if prompted.

To use all of the features with Apple Arcade, make sure that your device is updated to the latest software.
