Apple Fitness+ instructors tease the upcoming launch of service on Instagram

Apple Fitness+ is expected to launch sometime before the year ends. Ahead of the launch, many Fitness+ instructors are teasing the upcoming service with the #CloseYourRings hashtag on Instagram.

Apple announced its subscription-based fitness service, Apple Fitness+, alongside the launch of Apple Watch Series 6. The new service will offer a variety of workout videos by renowned trainers inside the Fitness app across popular categories including Cycling, Treadmill, Rowing, HIIT, Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, and Mindful Cooldown.

New Apple Fitness+ workouts will be released on a weekly basis after launch. Each class will also offer a playlist “thoughtfully curated by the trainers” on Apple Music. The service will be located inside the Fitness app on the iPhone after launch, however, users will also be able to access the workouts on the Apple Watch, and Apple TV.

Apple Fitness+ instructors tease upcoming launch of service on Instagram

A ton of Fitness+ instructions took to Instagram last week to advertise the upcoming launch of the service. All of the posts include the #CloseYourRings hashtag and mention the @AppleFitinessPlus account in the caption.

Though none of the posts mention a launch date for the release of Apple Fitness+, it is likely to happen in a few weeks since there is not much time left till the end of 2020, and Fitness+ instructors have only recently started advertising the launch of the service.

It is also possible that the service might launch with the upcoming iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2 public updates. Images of Fitness+ service were discovered listed as a feature in watchOS 7.2 developer beta. Reference to Fitness+ was also found in the Analytics section of Privacy settings in the first release of iOS 14.3 beta. However, it was later removed.
