Apple's latest creation is known as Apple Arcade. Apple Arcade challenges the play store market as a unique subscription-based platform. One monthly payment is all it takes for complete access to the Apple Arcade library.

But what can we expect out of the Apple Arcade service, and is it worth the hype?

Check out the new WWDC22 Apple Keynote Highlights

With a superhero, futuristic theme and a focus on next generation technology, Apple WWDC22 (Worldwide Developer's Conference 2022) approached Apple's newest software and technology from the mindset of world-change, equality, and ethical impact. Introduced with the statement "Code one, code all," Apple largely focused on providing education, jobs, and equal opportunity to developers, while employing a fun superhero theme complete with Craig Federighi doing a full on superhero run and combing his hands through his hair. While WWDC22's introduction was slightly less exciting and action-packed than in previous years, it focused on big-picture issues that are indisputably more important than some flashy WWDC introduction. Don't worry, though, if you were hoping for some flashy new products to buy this Fall, you won't be disappointed. Though the Apple Summer WWDC's tend to be more about software and less about hardware, there are two new products announced that you can spend the next four months or so drooling over! If you are as eager as I am to scope out those two new, next generation products, let's get into it! Note: Not every new Apple feature is listed in this article. The purpose of this article is to give you an easy-to-read version of an otherwise long event, since I know not everyone has two hours on a Monday to watch the Apple Keynote.
