My Sports: Follow your teams in the News app | iOS 17 Guide

The “My Sports” section in Apple’s News app is customizable to help you track only the sports, leagues, athletes, and teams you’re interested in. You’ll get the latest stories, plus live scores and highlight reels for certain sports.

Open the News app to the Today view and scroll until you see the My Sports section. If this is your first time here, tap Get Started and then Turn On. You can then build up a roster of “smart topics” to follow. Tap the + button next to any sport you’re interested in, or tap the > button on a sport to dial in further and follow a specific league or team. You can also use the search bar at the top to quickly find what you’re looking for.

The choices you make here will also affect the sports content surfaced via Apple TV.

Live Scores

You can also add Live Activity widgets to the Lock Screen. One of the most obvious uses for these widgets – which update in real-time – is for easy access to scores and play-by-play updates from matches you’re following.

These widgets can be added by long-pressing your Lock Screen and tapping Customize.
