Apple announced at its iPhone 13 launch event that it will bring its Fitness + service to 15 new regions. The wait is coming to an end! Apple has started rolling out its One Premier plan in 17 new regions, with Fitness + to follow tomorrow. This extension is accompanied by that of Apple Pay, which has just been available in three new regions.
Apple Fitness +
Apple initially launched Fitness + in 6 countries: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, UK, and US. Tomorrow, November 3, it will be available in Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. New users will get a one-month free trial, and Apple offers a three-month trial with every Apple Watch purchase. Fitness + is also included in the Apple One Premier plan.

Apple One Premier was also supposed to be available tomorrow, but it looks like it will be rolling out a day earlier, according to 9to5Mac. This pack includes Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade, Apple News +, Apple Fitness + and iCloud +. However, News + is not supported in these new regions, so subscribers will only have access to other bundled services.
A Premier costs $ 29 per month in the US, and all included services can be shared among six family members. It’s unclear how much that will cost in each of the new regions, given that Apple takes local currencies into account. In Brazil, for example, it costs R $ 69.50, or about $ 12.
New countries where One Premier is supported are Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand , Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. Ireland and New Zealand have already supported Fitness +, so they can access it through One Premier from today. Subscribers in the other 15 regions will have to wait until tomorrow to burn their calories in all fancy.
In addition to Fitness + and One Premier, Apple continues to expand its services around the world. According to 9to5Mac, users in Costa Rica, Colombia and Azerbaijan can take advantage of Apple’s payment system. While Kapital Bank in Azerbaijan is already promoting the availability of the feature, Apple and other banks in the other two countries are not yet doing so. Maybe that’s because Apple is adding some final touches before opening the floodgates and making it official.
