Verizon is now including up to 12 months of Apple Arcade for free with its Unlimited plans, and best of all, the deal is available for both new and existing customers. You'll also be able to score access to Apple Music and other services like Disney+ for free.

Priced at $4.99 per month, the freebie would be worth as much as $60 which isn't to be sniffed at. However, it's also worth noting that Apple is offering a free three months of Apple Arcade to new users right now, too.

Verizon's offer is contigent based on which plan you're on, with the free Apple Arcade offer beginning officially on May 25.

Verizon already offers the best value in entertainment, and it just got even better with an amazing new deal guaranteed to bolster your mobile gaming library with hundreds of new titles. Starting May 25, new and existing customers get six months of Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass, ($4.99/mo. value) on us with any unlimited plan or 12 months on us with "Play More" or "Get More" plans.

Anyone saving big on a new Apple Arcade subscription could do far worse than spend that extra cash on one of the best game controllers for iPhone, as selected by the iMore team. Go on, it's time you gave yourself a treat, right?
