Apple Arcade For Mac Available To Try Right Now Via macOS Catalina Beta
If you’re brave enough to run the macOS 10.15 Catalina beta, you can now take Apple Arcade for a spin. The feature is now live ahead of the public Catalina launch, whenever that may be.
Apple Arcade is already available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV and the arrival of support on the Mac will complete the rollout. Mac users will then have access to more than 100 games for $4.99 per month. That’s for the entire family, too.
None of the games available via Apple Arcade include in-app purchases or ads, making them a great way of enjoying unique and exclusive games without having to deal with some of the troublesome monetization techniques a number of games use.
Apple hasn’t yet said when macOS 10.15 Catalina will be made available to the public, but it’s the last of the major software updates that were announced at Apple’s WWDC event back in June. We’ve already seen updates to iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS, all of which continue to receive bug fixes, too. The fact macOS 10.15 Catalina hasn’t yet seen the light of day suggests Apple needed extra time to get all of its ducks in a row.
Hopefully, that extra time means we won’t see the bugs and problems that iPhone and iPad owners have had to deal with over the last couple of weeks.
