Apple Sports App Updated for NBA and NHL Playoffs

Apple's recently-launched Sports app for the iPhone was updated today ahead of the NBA and NHL playoffs, which both begin this weekend.

Apple Sports App Preview Feature
Apple says fans will be able to "follow every matchup with added details on each series and more," but we have not noticed any immediate changes in the app after updating to the new version. The first NBA and NHL playoff series begin on Saturday, April 20, so the extra details will presumably become visible then. Some info like playoff matchups and conference standings was already available in the previous version of the app.

Released in February, the Apple Sports app shows scores, schedules, stats, and more for a variety of leagues, such as the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, and Premier League. The app also displays real-time play-by-play information for ongoing games.

Apple Sports is available for free on the App Store.

I love how this worthless app still doesn't support live activities.

This app is still unfinished and there are better options available. I have deleted it for a second time and gone back to theScore app.

Until Apple represents ALL the Football leagues in the UK, this app is nothing more than a Joke. Football is not just the Premier Leauge!

I also installed and deleted it for the second time. It has a REALLY long way to go to be useful for my needs.

I really want to like this app, but between this and whatever the TV app is doing, I've had to unfavorite all my teams because of excessive notifications (especially for MLB) and even though I tried shutting off notifications, they would still show up on my watch every time there was a run scored.

Once there's an option for more granular things you want to be notified about (kind of like what the ESPN app offers) then I'll give it another look.
