    In the event Apple chooses to unleash News across other platforms, it surely makes sense to port Arcade in the same way. In the short term, maybe not.

    Huberty writes: “Our checks indicate there is no intention for Apple to bring these changes to gaming apps. While reader apps collectively make up just 14% of T12M App Store developer revenue, Gaming apps are the App Store cash cow, accounting for 63% of developer revenue in T12M.”

    Never say never, of course.

    “That said, given the importance of the gaming category, it will be a space we watch closely, especially with the decision in Apple’s legal dispute with Epic Games expected to be announced any day now,” the analyst said.

    This may be true, but given the reader app changes aren’t expected to be made available until early next year, and that Apple is also expected to make significant announcements around AR in 2022, it’s hard to ignore the momentum.

    I think this energy potentially translates into a cross-platform games service with augmented reality as the prize. That would, of course, explain the current bad blood between Apple and Epic, given the latter’s determination to rule the multiverse.

    Things look likely to become interesting in the coming months — so long as Apple doesn’t shed trust.
