Nieuwe Apple Diensten die gaan komen

Er zijn zoals gezegd een aantal nieuwe Apple diensten die gaan komen.

Zo is Apple News+ een dienst waarbij je voor 9.99$ per maand bijna alle magazines, tijdschriften en kranten kunt lezen, wordt Apple Arcade een gaming dienst waar je voor een vast bedrag per maand honderden spelletjes op je i-devices kunt spelen en komt er natuurlijk Apple TV+ (soort van Netflix concurrent, met eigen films en series).
