In September, iOS 16.1 was released with support for Live Activity in third-party apps. This feature allows iPhone users to stay up to date with real-time events, such as sports games or food delivery orders, right on the lock screen or in Dynamic Island.
Live activities are essentially notifications in mode real-time information displayed on the iPhone lock screen provide concise information. Online activities also show up on Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. You can long press on Live Activity on Dynamic Island to view more information.
Below, we've highlighted five particularly useful Live Activity-enabled iPhone apps for sports performance, parking, flying, and more.< br/>
Since the World Cup is taking place in Qatar, the FotMob app can be used to track match results in real time throughout the month-long tournament. To do this, open the FotMob application, click on the current match and click on the star in the upper right corner. As a result, a scoreboard with real-time results will appear on the lock screen and Dynamic Island.
In addition to the World Cup, the Sports Alerts app can be used to track the real-time results of many other sports leagues, including the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and NCAA football and basketball. To do this, open the Sports Alert app, click on the current game, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select “Start Live Stream”. As a result, a scoreboard with real-time results will appear on the lock screen and Dynamic Island.
