Apple has become a brand that unlike competitors, is more than just the technology you are buying, but a feeling, a vibrancy. Today, If you are out for a run or a walk, chances are you are measuring your heart rate and distance on an apple device. Simultaneously, your favorite song is playing to give you a little extra motivation, from that very same device. This is coming from the company that used to be nothing more than a computer, and can now be utilized for almost any aspect of everyday life. The tree called Apple continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down in it’s relentless evolution. Their next branch to sprout if it hasn’t already, may very well be a solidified position in the professional sports realm.

The first thing to be aware of, is understanding how powerful of a platform the professional sports world really is. At the core, viewers consist of a passionate, loyal fanbase that tune in almost every night.

Now that the Supreme Court just granted states the permission to once again legalize gambling on sports matches, you can expect that number to rise just like the blood pressure of a die-hard fan or gambler during a close game. What happens now is the average person who normally wouldn’t care to watch a game at 8:00 on a Tuesday night when is favorite show is on, might be watching in hopes of getting a return on his bet.
