Apple News Has a Dedicated Section for 2018 Winter Olympics

The Opening Ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics, which is taking place in South Korea, begins at 8:00 PM ET on Friday, February 9.

There will be a lot of news that comes out of the Olympic Games this year, as is generally the case, and Apple wants to make sure that iOS users know they can find most, if not all, of that content in the dedicated Apple News app on their devices. As such, Apple is working with NBC to launch a dedicated section of Apple News for the 2018 Winter Olympics.

If you want to find it, you will need to go through the “For You” section within Apple News, as is pictured above. Within there, the standard news articles will be there, and there will also be plenty of videos to look through. The Winter Games will run for two weeks, and competitions have technically already begun.

As noted by TechCrunch, while NBC is the major partner here, the coverage will be handled by a variety of sources. Meanwhile, if you want to watch a replay of an event, or other specific video content, that will be handled by NBC Sports.

Our Take

This is a good move on Apple’s part. For iOS users that actually take advantage of Apple News, and who want to stay up-to-date on what is happening with the PyeongChange Winter Olympics. The coverage so far looks pretty good, too. It might actually be a worthwhile source for what’s happening over there for the Winter Games.
