Apple Fitness+ is coming at a ideal time as many of us are stuck at home to help stop the spread of the pandemic. The service launches December 14, 2020 and here’s what you’ll need to use it:

- Something to watch the workout on:
- iPhone 6S or later: You can view the workouts on your iPhone as long as it has iOS 14.3 or later, which is currently supported on the iPhone 6S or later.
