How do I get sports scores on Lock Screen iOS 16?

Over the past few years I have become a fan of the NBA team and love to watch every game. I also enjoy every game of a different team such as NFL, WNBA, MLB, NHL, college football and basketball, MLS and NWSL. But sometimes I can’t watch the live match while working in the office. But iOS 16 has a new feature to get sports scores on the lock screen.

Yes, I feel so blessed to have this feature because it shows every live update from my favorite team on my iPhone’s lock screen in iOS 16. So it keeps me updated on the live track while I work am. Apple has added the new My Sports section to the updated Apple News app for users in the US, Canada, UK and Australia. This feature will soon support other countries as well. Let’s add sports scores to iOS 16 lock screen.

How to get Apple News My Sports on iOS 16 lock screen

  1. Open the Apple News app.
  2. Go to the Today section.
  3. Scroll down to Favorite and tap My Sport.
  4. At the bottom, tap Manage next to Follow.
  5. Tap View all.
  6. Tap the Plus icon next to teams to add for update.
  7. Tap Done after selecting teams for live update.

After following the above step, the selected teams will be visible on the app homepage under the following section. Now you can see the live score and update on the news app home page. You can also add Apple News app widget to lock screen and enable Live Activities feature to get sports scores on iOS 16 lock screen.

Unfortunately, Apple has not added the Live Activities feature to iOS 16 as the feature is being tested. But we can expect this feature from the next iOS 16 upgrades.

However, it is better to keep track of all live sports events from Apple News app. If you liked this post, feel free to share your feedback in the comment box.
