Earlier this year, Apple announced that it would offer “the most comprehensive” coverage of the 2020 US presidential election via Apple News. Now that Election Day has officially arrived, here’s how to follow along with news coverage and results as they roll in.
When you open the Apple News app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you’ll see a live “Presidential Race” ticker that shows the breakdown of Electoral Votes as states begin to report. Tapping on the Presidential Race ticker will show you a more detailed breakdown of results, including details on precincts reporting, the popular vote, and more.
Furthermore, you can even tap on the map to see county-level data. Apple is sourcing all of its live election results data from the Associated Press. It is also sourcing odds and prediction data from FiveThirtyEight. Finally, there’s even an interactive electoral map available in Apple News courtesy of The Washington Post.
