Apple Fitness+ comes to iPhone on October 24th

Apple isn’t just updating the iPad and Mac software next week. The company has announced that Fitness+ will come to iPhone on October 24, along with the necessary software updates, including iOS 16.1. You need the handset to sign in, but it’s also accessible via the iPad and Apple TV. You also don’t need an Apple TV to bring important stats to the big screen — Roku players with AirPlay will be showing metrics starting in November.

Access the full range of workouts and meditations via the appropriate tab in the fitness app. The main limitation, as you might have guessed, is accuracy. Where Apple Watch owners can rely on a constant heart rate measurement to determine their calorie consumption, iPhone users have to rely on estimates. You might still want Apple’s smartwatch if you insist on personalized performance metrics. The watch is also useful if you want to listen to time-to-walk or time-to-run workouts without taking your iPhone with you.

There are additional incentives to try the service too. You now get three free months of Fitness+ when you buy an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, instead of just an Apple Watch.

iOS 16.1 will feature a number of changes beyond supporting Fitness+. You can expect an improved battery life icon, live activity like sports scores, the shared iCloud photo library, per-app copy and paste permissions, and clean energy charging. Put simply, many of Apple’s OS update promises become a reality within a matter of days, regardless of what device you’re using.
