It’s gonna be exciting! Every four years, the world gathers to witness the beautiful game in all of its glory. Since all of us can’t make it to Russia, Apple is making sure we do not miss out on any action.
The iPhone maker has updated almost all its services for the grand football championship that begins tomorrow in Russia.
Siri will now be able to answer all your World Cup related question. The digital assitant will be able to tell the users about schedules, scores, standings, and squads.
In addition to this, Siri now responds to users in all the 32 participating countries for football requests, including newly introduced territories of Russia, Brazil, Turkey, Finland, Denmark, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Israel.
The most exciting things will happen inside the App Store. During the World Cup, the App Store editors have got a lot of special things stored for iOS users. You will learn about the apps and games that football starts like to play, the best techniques to get the perfect football photo, and the tactics to make the most out of social media during this grand event.
Obviously, football related apps will be featured on the App Store in many ways. Of course, soccer games like FIFA Mobile, PES 2018, and others will be highlighted during the next four weeks.
For the latest football news and articles, you can head to Apple News. The app will give you all the soccer story lines, thanks to its partnership with Eight by Eight magazine.
Then, there is Apple Music. The music streaming service will feature dedicated playlists with music from all popular artists of all the 32 participating nations. Of course, the official song of FIFA World Cup 2018 is also available for your listening pleasures.
Under “The Beautiful Game” series, Apple Podcasts and iBooks will showcase specialized content for football fans of all types.
However, Apple started early with the preparation for the World Cup. Last month, the Clips app was updated with football related material. Changes also have been made to Apple TV where viewers will be able to enjoy football events, movies, and songs in 4K picture quality.
