Apple Sports, Apple Vision Pro and Smart Ring on the AppleInsider Podcast

Apple continues to promote live sports with an all-new app

Apple has proven that it is obsessed on sports, creating a somewhat crazy new app, while Apple's Vision Pro is still revealing secrets and we can — or it can’t be — going to get another new Apple platform.

Forget about VisionOS and Apple Vision Pro: Apple has released a new sports app — and is rumored to be close to releasing the Apple Smart Ring. There's a surprising amount to be said about Apple Sports, and quite a lot to throw out in the Apple Ring claims, but both tell us a lot about where Apple is today.

Somewhere between the Apple Sports app that launched this week and the ring that may never will appear, there are announcements from Apple in the next few weeks. We can especially expect new iPads to arrive, and it looks like they'll be amazingly thin.

Also, we are still learning about Apple Vision Pro — and if you have that type of car, you'll soon see changes to CarPlay when iOS 17.4 comes out of beta in March.
