Apple Arcade devices 2019

Apple Arcade can be accessed from various Apple devices.

Features for Apple Arcade include:[5][6]

  • Supported on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS.
  • Users can carry over in-game progress between all devices linked to the same iCloud account. This means you can quit on a game on your iPhone and continue with your iPad.
  • No ads, in-app purchases, always-on DRM, or data tracking.
  • Up to six family members are allowed access through family sharing.
  • Various game controllers are supported, such as the DualShock 4 and Xbox One controllers.


To qualify for Apple Arcade's subscription service as an "exclusive" title:[7]

"Plus" versions (denoted with a "+" at the end of the name) may have additional features included, such as inclusion of all downloadable content (DLCs), no ads, and other extras to distinguish it as an "exclusive" over pre-existing versions of the game.[8] Some game projects were also cancelled due to lack of "engagement", though developers were still paid up through milestones that were met.[9]
