News Highlights: iOS 14.5 beta supports casting Apple Fitness + workouts with AirPlay 2

The first developer betas of iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, tvOS 14.5, and watchOS 7.4 are now available. While we’re still digging through the releases to learn all that’s new, there’s one notable change for Apple Fitness + users: support for AirPlay 2.

As first reported by TechCrunchAdds Apple Fitness + AirPlay 2 support for sending audio and video to a compatible set-top box or smart TV. This latest round of beta releases includes support for the functionality.

While the Apple TV has its own fitness application for accessing Fitness + content, AirPlay support means that users can now cast Fitness + workouts to devices with built-in AirPlay support, such as smart TVs and set-top boxes.

The limitation here is that statistics are not displayed on the screen:

The main difference here is that statistics are not displayed on the screen. That means you will lose things like your rings, calories burned, etc. They will have to rely on the connected Apple Watch and iPhone or iPad for that information. Not the end of the world, but they are an important part of the Fitness + experience. Undoubtedly, Apple wants to continue to boost its own hardware ecosystem while working on the growth of the practice app.

The lack of AirPlay 2 support was one of the biggest complaints about Apple Fitness + when it launched in December. At the time it was unclear whether it was a technical limitation, a decision related to DRM, or simply a delay in Apple’s development of features.

As of now, iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, tvOS 14.5, and watchOS 7.4 are only available to developer beta testers. We expect a public beta to be released this week, followed by a general release to everyone sometime in the coming months.
