Bloomberg reports that beyond Apple's news and video services expected to debut on Monday, Apple may be ready to uncover a similar gaming service.
Apple is also working on a premium game store subscription for the App Store and discussing it with potential partners, according to people with knowledge of the plans. This service will not take on new cloud-based streaming offers like Google Stages. Instead, it will focus on iPhones and iPads and pack up paid games from different developers that consumers can access monthly fees.
Monthly service charge will be shared between games in the service based on the amount of time spent on each game. The service will probably focus on paid games instead of the popular free-to-play genre.
Bloomberg is not sure the service will debut Monday, but Apple has probably cleared the way for focus on new services for the event. Earlier this week, Apple debuted the development of new AirPods, iMacs and iPads.
