Beforehand, you couldn’t be part of the service with out proudly owning one among Apple’s smartwatches, which made signing up an costly proposition. Because you want an iPhone to arrange an Apple Watch, you’d should personal two Apple gadgets to affix Health Plus. However with Apple bringing the Health app to the iPhone with iOS 16, no Apple Watch required, it is smart that Apple would make Health Plus extra simply accessible as properly.
The replace eradicating the Apple Watch requirement for Health Plus signups will probably be obtainable later this fall, Apple says. I’m a contented subscriber to the service — I notably just like the Health Plus yoga exercises, that are nice for a newbie like me — and I’m glad to see Apple is working to make Health Plus simpler to get began with. Health Plus prices $9.99 monthly, and it’s also possible to get it as a part of the $29.95 monthly Apple One Premier plan.
On Wednesday, Apple additionally introduced some new content material coming to the Health Plus service and a brand new yoga coach, Cube Iida-Klein, who will exchange coach Dustin Brown following his departure introduced earlier this week.
