iOS 16.1 will expand Apple Fitness+ to all compatible iPhones

At September 7 event, it was announced that Apple Fitness+ will expand to all iPhones later this year. In the code of iOS 16.1 beta 2 references to the service’s release in the build are found which means it might be part of the public release of the upcoming iOS 16.1 update.

Currently, the Fitness+ home workout service is powered by Apple Watch so subscribers can enjoy studio-style workouts on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV with workout metrics from Apple Watch for a “personalized and immersive experience”.  The upcoming update is going to change that.
