With the launch of iOS 16.1, Apple fixed a lot of nasty issues that escaped with iOS 16. However, the company also introduced new features to make the update worthy of its first major update title. One of the notable features that came with iOS 16.1 was support for Live Activities on certain third-party iPhone apps. The feature allows iPhone users to stay on top of real-time events. These include sports games, food delivery orders, etc. Below, we’ll list some applications (via) that already offer support for Live Notifications. One of the apps below will help you to stay on track with the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
The Live Notifications will appear on the new iOS Lock Screen, or even in the fancy Dynamic Island. The feature can be useful in many ways and can make your life more productive since you won’t need to constantly open and check apps for important info. So without further ado, let’s see the Top 5 iPhone apps with Live Activities support.
FotMob – useful iPhone app to track the FIFA World Cup 2022
As we’ve mentioned above, Football fans want to stay on track with the ongoing games of the FIFA World Cup. For this, we have the FotMob App. This iPhone app allows you to track live scores of matches in the tournament. You simply need to download the app from App Store, open it, tap on an ongoing match, and tap on the star in the top-right corner. This will result in a live scoreboard appearing on the Lock Screen and Dynamic Island.
Beyond the FIFA World Cup, the Sports Alerts iPhone app helps you to keep track of live scores from other sports leagues. It supports the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and NCAA football and Basketball. You only need to open the Sports Alert App, tap on an ongoing game, tap on the three dots in the top-right corner, and select Start Live Activity. This will also show a live scoreboard on the Lock Screen and Dynamic Island with play-by-play action.
