Apple isn’t only upgrading the software on the iPad and Mac next week. Fitness+ will be available for the iPhone on October 24th, along with necessary software upgrades, including iOS 16.1. Signing up will need the phone, but it will also be available on the iPad and Apple TV. You won’t even need an Apple TV to see critical numbers on the big screen; Roku devices with AirPlay will start displaying analytics in November.
The Fitness app’s appropriate category will provide you access to the entire spectrum of exercises and meditations. As you could expect, the biggest restriction is accuracy. Whereas Apple Watch customers may depend on continuous heart rate monitoring to calculate calorie burn, iPhone users must rely on approximations. If you want individualized performance statistics, you may still desire Apple’s smartwatch. If you wish to listen to Time to Walk or Time to Run exercises without bringing your iPhone, wristwear is also beneficial.
There are also other incentives to test the service. You may now receive three months of Fitness+ for free if you purchase an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, rather than simply an Apple Watch.
Aside from Fitness+ support, iOS 16.1 will bring a number of updates. An enhanced battery life symbol, Live Activities such as sports scores, iCloud Shared Photo Library, per-app copy-and-paste permissions, and clean energy charging are all on the way. Simply said, regardless of the device you’re using, many of Apple’s OS upgrade promises will become a reality in a matter of days.
