Hi folks. The highlight of yesterday's Apple event was the unveiling of new media services, which the tech giant appears to be using to restore demand for its hardware products.

Apple's new ad-free subscription gaming offering, Apple Arcade, and its streaming video service, Apple TV+, each start at $4.99 per month – undercutting current leaders in the market.

Low price points combined with the one-year promotion demonstrate how Apple is positioning content as a marketing vehicle to not only keep customers within the iOS ecosystem, but also entice new ones.
