Apple iOS 16.1 RC preview deletes live sports scores

Apple released a preview version of iOS 16.1 RC and will launch the official version on October 25th. Apple has announced that developers can now submit apps that support live events to the App Store. Developers can use the Xcode 14.1 RC release to build their apps, test them, and submit them for review.

iOS 16.1 introduced support for live events in third-party apps. This feature allows iPhone users to keep an eye on real-time events, such as sports games or food delivery orders, on the lock screen or in Smart Island.

The real-time activity appears at the bottom of the iPhone 13 or earlier models and iPhone 14/Plus lock screen, and on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, when the device is unlocked, the real-time activity content will appear in Smart Island, while the real-time activity appears on the lock screen when the device is locked or in AOD display mode.

Live events will also support league-specific sports scores through the Apple TV app, including MLB (Major League Baseball) in the US, Canada, Australia, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, and Korea, and NBA in the US and Canada only and the Premier League. The feature worked in an early iOS 16.1 Beta , but Alec Cohen discovered that the live activity feature, which displays sports scores, was disabled in the iOS 16.1 RC preview, which may not be available until later.

iOS 16.1 will be released on October 25th alongside iPadOS 16.1 and macOS 13 Ventura. This update will support iCloud shared photo library, shared keys in the Wallet app via apps like Messages and WhatsApp, Apple Card savings account option, US clean energy charging option, support for Home app Matter accessories, Apple Fitness + workouts without Apple Watch, and many more.

Apple has also opened App Store app submissions for macOS 13 Ventura, watchOS 9.1, and tvOS 16.1.
