Apple ventures furthur into Sports industry with new “Apple Sports” app2 min read

The latest venture from Apple, the innovative “Apple Sports” app marks a step into the sports arena, promising iPhone users a seamless and personalized experience. Boasting a sleek design and lightning-fast updates, the app aims to streamline the sports viewing experience, though it does come with its share of strengths and weaknesses.

At its core, Apple Sports for iPhone excels in speed and simplicity. Scores update in real-time, while the interface remains intuitive and user-friendly. Fans can effortlessly navigate between games, access play-by-play details, and even explore live betting odds where available. Moreover, the app seamlessly integrates with the “My Sports” experience across Apple TV and News, ensuring a consistent and tailored user journey.

While Apple Sports for iPhone covers major leagues like the NBA, MLS, and Premier League, its scope remains limited. The absence of features such as news, highlights, and social media integration may leave some users longing for a more immersive experience. Additionally, the exclusion of prominent leagues like NFL and NCAA Football could deter fans deeply invested in these sports.

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
  • Serie A

Additional leagues will become available on Apple Sports over time, including MLB, NFL, NCAAF, NWSL, and WNBA for their upcoming seasons.

In short, Apple Sports for iPhone is great for basic league tracking, but serious sports fans might find it lacking. We’re hopeful that iOS 18 will bring improvements and more options. For now, casual fans will be satisfied, but die-hard enthusiasts might want to check out other apps. Apple Sports is available to download beginning today in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada, with support for English, as well as French and Spanish where available.
