Catching all the sports action without a cable subscription, or when you're on the go can be difficult. Now fans can set up their favorite teams with My Sports in the Apple News app. With real-time scores, schedules, and news the My Sports section goes a long way towards keeping iPhone users up-to-date.
Apple TV App
Live streaming of every Major League Soccer (MLS) match is coming to the Apple TV app next year. For 10 years starting in 2023, Apple has an agreement with MLS to broadcast every match without any local restrictions or blackouts. MLS matches will not be included in the standard Apple TV+ subscription, but pricing for MLS access has not yet been announced.
Apple wants its TV app to be your home base for all of your video streaming services, and while it has yet to integrate with Netflix or Prime Video, it has done a decent job collecting smaller subscription services into one place. With the latest iOS update (13.4) it has added settings to let you control how much bandwidth it uses if and when it uses your cellular connection.
The "Up Next" section of the Apple TV app is a useful feature that helps you keep track of what shows you are watching and where you are in each show. So if you've been watching 20 different shows across Apple TV+, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and Disney+, you should be able to see at a glance that you are on episode 5 of The Mandalorian and season 2 episode 8 of The Handmaid's Tale and so on.
One of the best features of Apple TV Channels is the ability to watch content offline. Your favorite shows and movies can be downloaded and viewed without a cellular data or Wi-Fi connection. The only drawback is that keeping a library of videos on your device takes up storage space.
