Apple Arcade offers affordable access to some of the best games on the App Store. Many of these are exclusive to Apple Arcade, but you'll also find some games on the App Store and Play Store. If you've compared Apple Arcade to Play Pass and decided Play Pass is better value for money, you can easily your Apple Arcade subscription. That said, you'll probably need to get a top-of-the line Android tablet for gaming since you can't use Play Pass on an iPad.
Canceling your Apple Arcade subscription can be done on iOS and macOS. If you have a deal through your carrier or are an Apple One subscriber, things may be slightly different.
Should you cancel Apple Arcade?
One drawback of Apple Arcade is that you can't keep your save data when you cancel your subscription. This is especially unfortunate if you found one or two non-exclusive games on Apple Arcade. For this reason, we recommend using Apple Arcade's free trial to test out as many games as possible. Then, cancel your subscription and buy them separately.
If Apple Arcade isn't good value for you, consider an Apple One subscription. It costs three times as much, but it provides access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, iCloud+, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+ on top of Apple Arcade.
