Apple releases iOS 16.5 with a new sports tab in Apple News

Posted on

Apple released iOS 16.5 to all users on Thursday with a new Sports tab in the Apple News app. The tab acts as a hub for scores, game schedules, and articles about your favorite sports teams.

The company said tapping My Sports score and schedule cards will redirect you to that specific game’s page with additional information about it.

iOS 16.5 also brings a new Pride Celebration wallpaper and bug fixes for Podcasts in CarPlay, unresponsive Spotlight, and screen time sync.

In addition to the software update for the iPhone, Apple has also released minor updates for other devices running iPadOS 16.5, macOS Ventura 16.4, and watchOS 9.5.

The company’s biggest upgrade with this release cycle was the introduction of multiview for sports fans on Apple TV. This feature allows users to watch up to four games simultaneously on Apple TV 4K. Currently, the multiview feature works with events such as Major League Soccer games, Friday Night Baseball games, and select MLS and MLB live shows.

While we’re only weeks away from Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), a report from Macrumors earlier this week noted that Apple is already testing iOS 16.6 internally and will soon be releasing a beta version for developers. That means iOS 16.5 may not be the last major release before the event.
