With the 2018 FIFA World Cup about to begin, Apple has revealed how you can catch up with the latest developments across the range of Apple services. Including the latest stats, scores, and how your favourite team is going.
The services in which Apple will be covering the event include Apple News, the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, and even Siri, Apple’s voice assistant. Which can be used across a range of Apple products from iPhone to iPad, Apple TV, and more.
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to get an answer to a question is by using Siri, Apple’s voice assistant. During the World Cup, you can ask for scores, schedules, standings and team rosters.
For example, simply say:
- “When does France play Australia?”
- “Who won the Argentina-Iceland match?”
- “What teams are in group A?”
Apple TV Streaming
Apple TV, which can be used with any modern TV has an App Store which allows developers to build a range of apps. Optus Sport, an App created by Optus is where you can watch all the entire 2018 World Cup.
