Hands-On With the New 'Apple Sports' App

Apple today released Apple Sports, a brand new app that's designed to be a dedicated hub for sports fans to find real-time statistics, scores, lineup details, live betting odds, and more. This is Apple's first new app in some time, so we thought we'd give it a quick evaluation.

The Apple Sports app has a straightforward design that puts each person's favorite leagues and teams front and center. It's updated for all the leagues that are in season right now, including MLS, NBA, NCAA basketball, NHL, Premier League, and more.

As of right now, NFL and college football aren't available, but Apple is planning to add support for those and MLB, WNBA, and NWSL when those seasons begin.

You can see all pertinent stats for your favorite teams, along with play-by-plays and schedules so you don't miss anything. You can only get this app on the iPhone, and right now, Live Activities don't seem to be working, though support might be coming in the future.

Apple Sports is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. It can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

No live activities, no widgets, no Apple Watch support…

Seems like this was made by a talented 3rd grader for a contest at Apple. I don't get it.

SO they invested resources of some kind into this app and yet they don't have a calculator on the iPad.

Boggles the mind!

They're going to try to compete with ESPN and didn't come out with all the features and really enable it to be a killer app. Way to put your best foot forward!

Looks like you can't even sort standings by division, conference, league, wild card, etc.

This is so barebones I can't think of a reason I'd ever even open it. Already deleted. Maybe they will build it out but it is useless for my needs.
