iOS 16.1 and tvOS 16.1 are currently in beta testing and developers have found that the OS version allows users to use Apple Fitness+ without an Apple Watch. This is in line with Apple’s announcement during its Far Out event regarding how the Apple Fitness+ service will be available to iPhone users without an Apple Watch starting “later this fall”.
As reported by MacRumours, the feature was noticed by user Jadyn Daniel who posted screenshots of the service on the iOS 16.1 beta yesterday. Besides that, Screen Times editor-in-chief Sigmund Judge also found a new screen that allows users to connect an iPhone for Apple Fitness+ workouts without an Apple Watch.
Hence, this is good news for those that would like to use the service for workouts but are hesitant to purchase an Apple Watch. Moreover, Apple Fitness+ is readily available in Malaysia too, whereby we are one out of 21 countries where Apple is offering the service. The rest of the countries that have this service offered are the United States, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, the UAE, and the UK.
