Is Apple Fitness+ not working on your iPad? You haven’t been the only one affected. A bug was preventing any compatible iPad model to download the Fitness app from the App Store, thus making the Fitness+ subscription not available. Users that attempted to install the Fitness app in iPadOS 14.3 are prompted with the ‘This app requires specific features not available on this device’ error message.

Apple has fixed this issue in the meantime, as literally no iPad user was able to get Fitness+ on iPad. The downtime has been fixed in a couple of hours! Fitness+ users could use an iPhone or Apple TV to subscribe and perform the new workout routines!
