Apple reportedly considered a cloud gaming component or counterpart to Apple Arcade , with one technology analyst claiming the idea was raised – and then mooted – by the tech giant in the recent past. According to Mark Gurman (in his Power On newsletter), Apple "in the past has internally discussed the prospects of launching such a service" (via Bloomberg ). It's a fascinating admission, if one that shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Apple has no doubt considered many things that never made it to market, and is permanently toying with and researching new avenues for both its hardware ranges and its software services.
