Apple Fitness+ Debuting With iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2: REPORT
Apple Fitness+ may be included with the upcoming release of iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2.
A new report from MacRumors explains that a watchOS 7.2 beta user noticed a “what’s new” screen after updating that includes Apple Fitness+ as one of the new features for the Apple Watch.
“As noted on the MacRumors forums, the current watchOS 7.2 beta that was released this morning has a splash screen with what’s new, and Apple Fitness+ is listed as one of the features,” reads the report.
Apple Fitness+ will cost $9.99 USD a month when it’s released, and will consist of a range of home workouts from dozens of fitness professionals. These videos will be part of a new Fitness app that will appear on Apple TV when the service launches.
A recommendation engine suggests new exercises based on completed exercises, user preferences and workout type, though users can manually select from a range of workouts and choose from videos featuring different trainers, durations and music.
Apple is expected to launch their new iOS 14.3 software update and watchOS 7.2 some time in December, so it looks like the new Apple Fitness subscription service should also launch at the same time.
New buyers of an Apple Watch Series 3 or later are eligible for three months of service for free, while all users can trial the product for one month.
