Apple Fitness+ now available for iPhone users to subscribe to, even if they don’t have an Apple Watch
Apple has released iOS 16.1, adding the ability for iPhone users to subscribe to Apple Fitness+, even if they don’t have an Apple Watch.
For the first time, Apple has dropped the requirement to have an Apple Watch to subscribe to Apple Fitness+, the pay-monthly fitness service offering studio-style workouts from expert coaches and trainers within the Fitness app, with Apple now offering three free months of Fitness+ with the purchase of a new iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.
Beginning today, iPhone users will have access to the entire service featuring over 3,000 studio-style workouts and meditations. Users will also see onscreen trainer guidance and interval timing, and estimated calories burned will be used to make progress on their Move ring.
Apple Fitness+ is available as a subscription service for $9.99 (US) per month or $79.99 (US) per year, and can be shared with up to five other family members. Apple Fitness+ is available in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, the UAE, the UK, and the US.
Apple Fitness+ requires an iPhone 8 or later with iOS 16.1.
