  • Apple's Kaiann Drance talks about the new iPhone 11 during a launch event on Apple's Cupertino California campus

Apple shares are up 0.3% in Tuesday trading. Today, the company announced more details about the service.

The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro will have three cameras on the back - wide angle, telephoto and ultra-wide.

"You can't find these games on any other mobile platform for subscription service, no games service ever launched as many games, and we can't wait for you to play all of that", product manager Ann Thai told the Apple media event in Cupertino, California.

The TV+ service is entering a crowded field that already includes Netflix, Amazon.com, Hulu and AT&T's HBO.

Along with the new streaming service, Tuesday's announcements, which included a $4.99-per-month for its new Apple Arcade gaming service, represent a continuing shift in the importance of services to Apple's bottom line.

What's more, and in addition to the 7-day free trial, to try and bolster interest in the service Apple are including an entire year's subscription with the purchase of any new iPad, iMac or iPhone.

After announcing the subscription service at WWDC earlier this year, Apple has now revealed that Apple Arcade will be launching later this month.

Apple's new video game subscription service will cost $5 a month when it rolls out on September 19.

The Apple Event opened with a new subscription gaming service called Apple Arcade.

At the launch event, Apple showcased three original gaming titles from developers like Konami, Capcom and Annapurna Games.

Apple is pushing into services to generate extra revenue from its large base of iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch users. Apple has not yet given a specific launch date or price.

A couple of weeks ago, Apple also showed off Dickinson.

The Apple Watch Series 5 will have an always-on display, an 18-hour battery life and worldwide emergency calling in over 150 countries.

As smartphone competition turns hyper-local, Cook has to reinvent the iPhone and this time, he has growing services business on his side which, if bundled well with the new models of iPhones, can do magic. "Customers with iPhone X and beyond likely won't have a reason to upgrade", said Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy.
