ESPN for iOS becomes a universal app for iPhone & iPad with new look, iPhone 6/+ support

ESPN's official application for iOS was given an overhaul on Thursday, becoming a universal app for iPhone and iPad, gaining support for the larger displays of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and also getting a fresh coat of paint.

The ESPN App version 4.2 is now available to download on the iOS App Store. The free update adds native support for the larger displays of the iPad lineup, as well as the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6.

The update also adds ESPN Now, a new feature that can be accessed by swiping right from the news section. There, users can access up-to-the-minute ESPN photos, videos, and social media content.

Version 4.2 also adds support for the Cricket World Cup, including video clips and scores. And the latest version also includes the usual bug fixes and speed improvements.

As part of its redesign, the app has also been rebranded. Previously known as the SportsCenter app, and ScoreCenter before that, the name has been changed to the ESPN App.

ESPN's official app also includes the ability to watch the worldwide leader's channels live over the Internet, and also offers a live stream of ESPN Radio content.
