Apple has just released iOS 16.5, and it appears to be a minor one: perhaps the biggest new features involve sports information in Apple News.

Specifically, Apple News is getting a new Sports tab in the app that gives “easy access to stories, scores, standings, and more, for the teams and leagues you follow,” meaning it could be a handy way to follow sports-y things you care about in one spot. There are also new sports-focused score and schedule cards that will include information about specific games.

There is also a new Pride Lock Screen wallpaper and a few bug fixes. You can read Apple’s full changelog below:

On Thursday, Apple also released iPadOS 16.5, macOS Ventura 16.4, and watchOS 9.5 with similarly minor updates. And on Apple TV, the company officially launched multiview so you can watch multiple sports games at once.
