Apple brings FIFA World Cup closer to you

As the countdown to the 2018 FIFA World Cup begins, football fans around the world including in India can stay up to date with statistics, scores and updates on their favourite teams across all Apple devices, the company has said.

Virtual assistant Siri adds support for football in Brazil, Russia, Denmark, Finland, Malaysia, Turkey, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Israel -- in addition to 26 other countries that already support Siri sports, including India. Siri users can ask for scores, schedules, standings and team rosters, Apple said in a blog post.

The iPhone maker has joined Google, Facebook and Twitter that have already offered different ways to follow the tournament in real time.

Throughout the month, the App Store editors will highlight their favourite apps and games from football stars, offer tips on taking a perfect football photo and how to best get your football fix on social media. The App Store will also feature key football-related apps and games to help fans dive deeper into the experience, with official broadcaster apps like FOX NOW or BBC Sport, and games like FIFA Mobile and PES 2018. 

Apple Music will feature playlists for each of the 32 participating nations with the most exciting artists in each country as chosen by local teams.
