All the hardware you need to play Apple Arcade games

CNET Technology 1 week ago

Apple's game subscription service, Apple Arcade, was announced just last month. At $4.99 (£4.99, AU$7.99) a month after a one-month free trial, you get all-you-can-play access to the 100-plus "new and exclusive" games on the service without the worry of additional in-app purchases or advertisements. 

Unlike upcoming streaming game services such as Google Stadia, Arcade users download the games to their device so they can start playing offline. The latest software updates to iOS 13 and iPadOS support Mac, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation and other Bluetooth controllers, in addition to traditional on-screen controls.  

If you're confused about what hardware is supported or needed to play Apple Arcade games (and it's a long list), these are your current options, along with our tips for pairing the best controller for Apple Arcade.

Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site.
