Today sees a ton of new software updates arrive with Apple getting all of its ducks in a row ahead of the arrival of Apple Fitness+. That means that the new tvOS 14.3, watchOS 7.2, and macOS Big Sur 11.1 updates are all available to download.
All of these updates are rolling out right now which means you might have to wait a few minutes to get in on the download action, however.
The new macOS update adds support for AirPods Max as well as the new App Store privacy labels that have also gone live today. That will ensure third-party apps make it clear how they collect a user’s data and what that data might be used for. There’s now also an Apple News widget for those who like that sort of thing.
Again, this update is all about the arrival of Apple Fitness+, allowing Apple Watch to track your workout and then feed the data into the Fitness app. It also includes support for measuring VO2 max, something Apple says is a “strong indicator of overall health.” Users will also receive notifications if their Cardio Fitness is sub-optimal. Apple has also improved the ECG app’s ability to check for atrial fibrillation at higher and lower heart rates than before.
The new Apple TV update, designed for the fourth and fifth generation Apple TV, brings support for Apple Fitness+.
Beyond that we don’t really know much about the update – Apple doesn’t share detailed breakdowns of the releases like it does with other platforms. We would expect the usual sprinkling of performance updates and bug fixes, though.
All of these updates are now available via their respective update mechanisms and are, of course, free.
