The FIFA World Cup 2018 is just around the corner. The world’s biggest football event will take place on June 14 and will run through 15 July in Russia. It’s a gathering place where big national teams challenge for the golden cup. Big tech giants are now speeding up to add support for the event to their apps and services.
Apple is one of the leading smartphone brands to bring World Cup support to its iPhone and iPad models. According to Apple, the company is adding support for football information to its personal assistant, Siri. That means that you will be able to catch up with the latest happenings of this year’s football global event.
However, Apple says that World Cup support in Siri will not hit all countries as it only comes to markets that already support the ability to get sports scores using Siri. To get World Cup information, you simply need to say “What teams are in group A?” or “Who is on France squad?” Siri will quickly give you answers along with fixtures for your desired teams.
Besides, Apple TV owners will be able to keep track of all the latest actions from this year’s football event on FOX NOW in the US. The coolest part is that football fans can pick their favorite teams and follow all their matches in the competition. In other words, you will get scores and background news about your desired teams. You will also receive notifications on your iPhone, iPad or Mac when their match is close. This makes sure that you won’t miss any important games or news this year.
Apple says that the Apple News app will also get World Cup support. Users will get the latest happenings about the event, including real-time scores, schedules, and news. If you are a big fan of music, then Apple Music will include support for songs from local artists of 32 participating countries.
Apple’s move aims to bring the biggest football event close to its fans. They can catch up with the latest actions on the field with voice commands or some simple taps.
