Ready to sign up for Apple Fitness+ but facing an issue with it not showing up on your iPhone or Apple Watch? This new subscription service has currently been rolled out to users in the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and Australia. So, naturally, you won’t be able to use it in any other geography for now. However, if you’re within any of these countries and Apple Fitness+ is not showing up on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, here are some tips to fix it.
- Check if your Device Supports Fitness+
- Update your Device
- Download the Fitness App
- Use Apple Watch
- Use the Same Apple ID
1. Check if your Device Supports Fitness+
Only selected devices support Apple Fitness+, namely:
- iPhone 6s or later
- iPad Air 2 or later
- Apple Watch Series 3 or later
- Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K
If you have some other device, you will not be able to use this service. However, if you have a supported device but still can’t see Apple Fitness+, try the tips below.
2. Update your Device
To use Fitness+, you must update your device software to the latest version, namely iOS 14.3, iPadOS 14.3, watchOS 7.2, and tvOS 14.3.
Install it by going to Settings → General → Software Update.
Note: If you’re running the beta versions of iOS/iPadOS 14.3, you do not need to update to the public version but will need to reboot your iPhone or iPad for the Fitness+ tab to display in the Fitness app.
3. Download the Fitness App
If you want to use Fitness+ on an iPad, you will need to download the Fitness app from the App Store.
On iPhone and Apple Watch, this app is available by default.
Note: Immediately after the app was released for iPad, there was a glitch that prevented users from downloading it, but it has since been fixed.
4. Use Apple Watch
If you want to play Apple Fitness+ workout videos on iPhone and iPad, it’s not mandatory to use an Apple Watch, but you won’t get any activity metrics.
When playing workout routines on Apple TV, you must wear a compatible Apple Watch.
5. Use the Same Apple ID
To access and use your Fitness+ subscription across different devices, you need to be signed in with the same iCloud account. If you are using different Apple IDs, you will not see your active Fitness+ subscription.
Can you See Apple Fitness+ on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch now?
We hope the above fixes helped you access Fitness+.
