Apple rolled out iOS 16.5, featuring a new sports tab within the Apple News app. This update serves as a central hub for users to access scores, match schedules, and articles related to their favorite sports teams.
By tapping on the score and schedule cards under “My Sports,” users are redirected to specific game pages that provide additional information about the event.
In addition to the sports tab, iOS 16.5 includes a pride celebration wallpaper and resolves issues with Podcasts in CarPlay, unresponsive Spotlight, and screen time syncing.
Furthermore, Apple released minor updates for other devices, such as iPadOS 16.5, macOS Ventura 16.4, and watchOS 9.5.
Among the notable enhancements in this release cycle is the introduction of multiview functionality for Apple TV. This feature allows sports enthusiasts to watch up to four games simultaneously on Apple TV 4K. Presently, the multiview feature supports events like Major League Soccer matches, Friday Night Baseball games, and select MLS and MLB live shows.
While Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is just a few weeks away, reports suggest that Apple is already internally testing iOS 16.6 and will soon release a beta version for developers. This indicates that iOS 16.5 may not be the final major release before the highly anticipated event.
