Apple Sports is a New App for Sports Fans

Apple offers News, Music, Fitness, Games, Podcasts, the list goes on. And now, the company is adding sports to the list with a new app called Apple Sports.

The app, which is available to download for free, isn’t for streaming sporting events. But you can use it to get real-time scores for the big games (so you can sneak a peek under the table at dinner or the meeting), stats, and more. There are many others similar sports apps, like theScore and ESPN. Apple, however, promises to focus on speed so you get by-the-secon, real-time updates.

“We created Apple Sports to give sports fans what they want — an app that delivers incredibly fast access to scores and stats,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Services. “Apple Sports is available for free in the App Store and makes it easy for users to stay up to date with their favourite teams and leagues.”

Apple Sports keeps fans up to date on the following leagues currently in season: MLS, NBA, NCAA basketball (men’s and women’s), NHL, Bundesliga, LaLiga, Liga MX, Ligue 1, Premier League, and Serie A. Additional leagues will become available on Apple Sports over time, including MLB,  NFL, NCAAF, NWSL, and WNBA for their upcoming seasons.

Once downloaded, you can customize scoreboards and follow just your favourite teams, tournaments, and leagues. Navigate between scores and upcoming games; explore play-by-play information, team stats, lineup details, and live betting odds (you can turn this feature off if preferred).

A unique feature: you can tap to go to the Apple TV app to watch live games from Apple and connected streaming apps, with an appropriate subscription. Apple Sports will also seamlessly sync with favourites selected within the My Sports experience including in the Apple TV app and Apple News. 

Apple Sports is available to download now in the App Store in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K., with support for English, French, and Spanish, where available. It works with any iPhone running iOS 17.2 or later.
