Soccer fans can get the latest on World Cup across Apple devices and services
As the countdown to the tournament begins, soccer fans around the world can stay up to speed on stats, scores and their favourite teams across all Apple devices.


Siri adds support for football in Brazil, Russia, Denmark, Finland, Malaysia, Turkey, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Israel — this is in addition to 26 other countries that already support Siri sports. Siri users can ask for scores, schedules, standings and team rosters.

Ask Siri questions like:

  • When does France play Australia?
  • What teams are in group A?
  • Who is on the England squad?
  • Who won the Argentina-Iceland match?

During the month, the App Store editors will highlight their favourite apps and games from soccer stars and offer tips on taking a perfect soccer photo. The App Store will also feature key soccer-related apps and games to help fans dive deeper into the experience, games like FIFA Mobile and PES 2018.

The Apple TV App on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV is the single destination to find and watch the TV shows and movies you love. In the US and Canada, where the Sports feature is available, Apple TV App users will be able to keep track of all the action on FOX NOW in the US; and TSN and RDS, Bell Media’s English and French-language apps in Canada. Fans can favourite teams and follow their matches in Up Next, and receive notifications on their Apple devices when their team is playing or a game is close.


Apple Music will feature playlists for each of the 32 participating nations with the most exciting artists in each country as chosen by local teams.

Apple Podcasts will feature an editorial collection entitled “The Beautiful Game,” where users can check out shows like Jetty’s “Game of our Lives” and Gimlet’s “We Came to Win” that talk about the drama off the football field, as well as traditional, established sports podcasts like “Men in Blazers.”

Fans can show their spirit by creating Clips videos with new soccer-themed graphics including animated stickers, labels and posters with customisable text.
