Apple Fitness+ now available for iPhone users as a paid service

Starting today, iPhone users can subscribe to the Fitness+ guided workout and meditation service even if they don’t own an Apple Watch.

Apple Fitness+ is now available for iPhone users as a subscription service for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year. Up to five family members can share the plan. It can also be accessed through iPad and Apple TV.

Up until now, the service was only available to Apple Watch owners. Launched almost two years ago, it contains a library of over 3,000 studio-style workouts and meditations led by professional athletes and trainers.

With the launch of Fitness+ for iPhone users, music by Taylor Swift will, for the first time, be available in the service. Songs from her album Midnights, released last week, will feature in a new Artist Spotlight series.

A new workout program that features one of the world’s top ultramarathon athletes, Scott Jurek, is also released today, as well as three new activity collections – Totally ‘80s Cycling, Best Mindful Cooldowns for Athletes, and 14-Day HIIT and Strength Challenge.

Meanwhile, a Time to Walk podcast will feature new guests, including Emmy-winning actor Hannah Waddingham, singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor and former astronaut Eileen M. Collins.

Fitness+ is fully integrated with the Fitness app and is available with the iOS 16.1 update. The service covers 21 countries, including the US, the UK, Canada, and Germany.
