Apple started broadcasting exclusive Major League Baseball content earlier this season. Every Friday, two regular season MLB games stream live on Apple TV+ and nowhere else. These games are available to all Apple TV+ subscribers across the US and several additional countries, along with live pre-game and post-game analysis.
The official MLB.com iOS app has been updated to take advantage of rich notifications in iOS 10. Rich notifications allows users to view photos, videos and respond to messages directly from the Notification Center. Users of the MLB.com At Bat can now watch video highlights in the Notification Center by using 3D Touch. This means you need an iPhone 6s or later to utilize the new "enhanced notifications" feature in version 9.5.0 of the app.
Siri has gained some new baseball knowledge just in time for the new MLB season. Apple's intelligent personal assistant can now answer "questions about more detailed statistics," according to The Verge. This includes questions about historical league stats, career statistics for individual past and present players and information about all 28 baseball leagues outside the MILB, including the minors.
Major League Baseball has released the 2012 update to its popular MLB.com At Bat mobile application. Now iPhone and iPad users can download and install the same app, which also means users with multiple iOS devices need only pay once. When it comes to paying for live content, MLB 2012 adds more options over last year's app.
Baseball fans can still grab the app for free, which provides live score updates. To hear live radio of games and watch the Gameday summary there are now two options, paying $14.99 once for the whole season or subscribing to the service for $2.99 per month. This also comes with a Live Game of the Day, stats, highlights and more.
