I just updated my iPad Pro 2020 to iPadOS 14.3. I'm also an Apple One Premier member.

When I try to download the Apple Fitness app to my iPad, the App Store doesn't let me. I get an error message: "This app requires specific features not available on this device."

Apple's announcement states

For usage with iPad, Fitness+ requires iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation or later), iPad mini 4 or later, iPad Air 2, or iPad Air (3rd generation or later), running iOS 14.3.

It looks like there might be a problem for iPad users right now. I can get it to work on my iPhone so I know it's available. Is there a way to download this to an iPad?


It's looking like there is a delay in rolling it out to iPadOS devices at the moment.

I'm sure they will get this issue resolved shortly.


Added a link with new about the issue.

  • Yep, this was it. After waiting 5 hours, the app finally could be downloaded. Thanks! – fsb Dec 15 '20 at 2:24
  • Took at restart of my iPad to get it to download, but working for me too. – Jeshizaemon Dec 17 '20 at 1:31

The Fitness app declares a paired Apple Watch as a requirement, which can't be fulfilled on iPad since Apple Watch is paired with an iPhone only.

The Fitness page on the App Store takes the place of the Activity app which has appeared on previous versions of iOS, but never on iPadOS due to this requirement.

This appears to be an oversight by Apple to not remove this flag from the App Store listing.
