When Apple gave a preview of the latest iOS 10 update at WWDC, it highlighted the new features that they were adding onto iOS 10. Particularly, they were working on improving the lock screen to make it more functional for use on widgets and notifications.
Baseball fans will be pleased with the newly updated MLB at Bat app. The iOS app has recently been updated to promote accessing the app from a locked screen. This is greatly in thanks to iOS 10's new Advanced Notifications alert technology that gives users access to live content and media attachments by allowing 3D Touch on Notifications.
The latest alert update to iOS 10 makes it easy for app users to be able to get updates from the app they are using, without ever having to open the app at all. Although technically speaking, you still have to 3D touch a notification and unlock your device. But the good news is that you no longer have to press your thumb on the home button or even enter a long PIN just so you could see what the notification was.
For any rabid sports fan (especially those who follow the MLB Playoffs every year), checking for live updates such as scores, video highlights, and even news can be likened to that old Western quick draw -- you would have to be quick, or else you run the risk of missing out (yup, in this day and age, the FOMO struggle is real). Obviously, this will be harder to manage if you have to either press your finger on the home button, or enter your PIN.
But by taking full advantage of the brand new lock screen on the iOS 10, the newly updated MLB at Bat mobile app now lets mega enthusiasts of America’s favorite pastime to watch video highlights or check the latest scores from their lock screens.
Even though MLB at Bat is not the first nor the only iOS app to take advantage of this new alert feature, it is good to see the app being able to help its users keep track of scores and news directly on their lock screen. In addition to this, they have a video feature available for the lock screen. However, the video feature is only available for paid MLB at Bat subscribers. With this new feature, it is even more enticing to use iOS and enjoy the newly updated iOS 10.
