The MLB app now supports live activity

The dedicated MLB app for iPhone now supports live activity following an update rolled out yesterday. Live Activity allows MLB users to follow their favorite teams without opening the app and see scores right from the lock screen.

On the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, scores can also be tracked via the Dynamic Island. After updating to the latest version of the app, users can select the Track option from the list of games to add the current score to the lock screen and Dynamic Island.

Live activity for MLB games has been offered through Apple’s own TV app, but until this week the MLB app itself didn’t support the feature. Live Activities have been available for third-party apps since the November release of iOS 16.1. Given that the MLB partners with Apple for content, it’s not clear why it took so long to implement the feature.

The MLB app was updated yesterday for the 2023 season, and in addition to supporting live activities, the app now includes a new onboarding experience, a watch tab with 24/7 programs, 2023 team schedules and tickets, a updated table page and more.

The MLB app is free to download from the App Store, but requires a subscription to unlock all content. Access to each out of print game costs $24.99 per month or $150 for the year. [Direct Link]

Friday Night Baseball games will continue on Apple TV+ when the 2023 season begins. The first games will premiere on Friday, April 7th, with the Texas Rangers taking on the Chicago Cubs and the San Diego Padres taking on the Atlanta Braves.
