Apple News Launches Coverage of 2018 Winter Olympics

On the one hand, it will give a little more attention to "For You" section: Apple has never detailed how much it is used compared to the rest of Apple News but I'm guessing less than what's at the top of the app when you first open it. Not long after adding a dedicated sports section to the Apple TV app, the company will now be rolling out a "News" section as well.

People can use the TV app to watch live news from outlets like CBS News, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, and Bloomberg on iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV streaming device. The TV app uses your Single Sign-On login credentials to log you into each of those apps, making it seamless to set up multiple different news sources.

Record-breaking drone show lights up Winter Olympics opening ceremony

In addition to the new section on the TV app, Apple has also added Siri functionality that will allow users to access the live streams via voice commands. In the United States, the additions provide easy access to both text and video news, though only a handful of partners are now featured.

The Olympics coverage section is found within the "For You" tab of Apple News.
