Will Apple's streaming service be able to offset the declining iPhone sales

Apple promises more than 100 games, and they will be exclusive to the service, so there will be plenty of fresh adventures.

Monday's celebrity-filled event marks a huge turning point for Apple.

Netflix and Amazon now dominate with millions of customers tuning in every day to binge on movies and original content. Users can know details such as budget monitoring and interest calculations.

The credit card comes with features that customers are bound to love - no worldwide fees, no over-limit and no hidden charges.

There's no word on price but expect all to be revealed in the coming months.

Social media billed the new card as an Apple "flex", a slang word millennials use for a product or service that allows them to show off to peers.

Users will be able to sign up on their iPhone in the Apple Wallet app and get a digital card that they can use anywhere Apple Pay is accepted.


With its new credit card Apple is betting that younger consumers will value convenience and privacy over generous cash rewards. You can continue to use all of the debit and credit cards that you added to Apple Pay at all the same merchants that you know and love, and Apple is still expanding Apple Pay to cover more banks and card providers every day.

While Apple Card does not charge penalties for late payments, the interest rate on the credit amount could be affected by late payments.

The service does not require any streaming, instead, it serves as a way to install myriad titles that can be played with and without an internet connection.

Consider iCloud, one of Apple's oldest (and most mundane) services. More mature and pragmatic than its older millennial forbearers, the cohort is savvy with both finances and technology, survival skills that members gained after watching siblings and parents suffer through the 2008 recession. It didn't take long for Steve Troughton-Smith, a popular iOS and MacOS "tinkerer" to discover a pretty significant flaw with the way Apple's service works on iMacs and MacBooks, MSPowerUser noticed.

We've compiled games that have been confirmed for Apple Arcade with a brief description of each to give you an idea of what's on the way. With the card service, Apple can further diversify its income streams by tapping the transaction fees arising from each transaction using the card.

The tech giant has emphasised all magazine content has been optimised for viewing on iPhone, iPad and Mac hardware. But a likely £9.99 / $9.99 monthly subscription would still look highly competitive against the cost of a Switch or modern Xbox One / PS4 console. Craig Vosburg, president of North America for Mastercard, which is partnering on the card, told Bloomberg News that the Apple Card may encourage other banks to change their card number strategies as well as a security measure.

However, the Cupertino-based company has confirmed the service will come to the United Kingdom and Australia later this year.
