The update comes after Apple announced the AirPods Max, which release on December 15, and the launch date of Apple Fitness+, which is December 14. The updates can be installed from the Settings app automatically or by navigating to General, then Software Update.

With iOS 14.3 Apple introduces ProRAW, a new image format exclusive to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. With ProRAW enabled, users will be able to access all of the information provided by the image signal processor, combining the benefits of both DSLR-style RAW photography with computational photography.

Third-party apps like Halide and Darkroom will be able to take advantage of the ProRAW format as well.





The update adds compatibly with its latest hardware release, the AirPods Max. The premium over-the-ear headphones include multiple technologies that iOS can take advantage of including Adaptive EQ and spatial audio.

Apple Fitness+ also launches to customers with this update, making working out at home an integrated Apple experience. Launch the app on your iPhone or iPad to begin a workout, and view your health metrics provided by the Apple Watch right on the screen as you work out to a video stream hosted by one of Apple's team of instructors

Other changes found in the updates include an "AirTags" setup process, which indicates the often-rumored product could launch in the not too distant future. Apple may have intended to launch "AirTags" alongside the AirPods Max, but the timing for such a product is still not ideal given the global pandemic and associated societal restrictions.

Apple's release notes include all changes made with the iOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.3 updates:

iOS 14.3 includes support for Apple Fitness+ and AirPods Max. This release also adds the ability to capture photos in Apple ProRAW on iPhone 12 Pro, introduces privacy information on the App Store, and includes other features and bug fixes for your iPhone.

    It would be kind of useful, if you could get into the habit of listing build number along with version numbers.

    This is important, because sometimes Apple sneaks in a minor revision, only noticeable by looking at build numbers, and developers and others with access to prerelease builds often get release candidates no longer marked as beta software. It’s then key to know if one has actually the released version installed, and not just something “relatively close to it”

    So, please!

    Anyone else missing the Fitness app on iPad in 14.3? I can’t even download it from the App Store - I just get “This app requires features unavailable on this device”.

    It looks like we are waiting on Apple to release the updated Fitness app now that is compatible with iPad.

    Here is a link to the US Store version.  It will be available to download whenever the update gets pushed out by Apple.

       Fitness App in the App Store 

    For folks in other countries, there will be a link to the App Store via Apple's website.  Go to Fitness+ -> Try Free -> Find the App Store link on this page.

    I see that the "Activity" app has changed to "Fitness" on my phone, but I do concur that nothing on my iPad Air.

    I don't see an Activity app nor a Fitness app on my iPhone 11 Pro.  Pretty weird experience so far in that it's so hard to try out one of the big marquee features after updating.

    Thanks for that link. Unbelievable. Accidental discovery is one thing, but this is just negligence on Apple’s part.

    Yeah I had to search, but it’s in the Activity App itself where you find your Rings for the Watch. The lower center is renamed Fitness now. If you deleted the Activity App bc you don’t use it or don’t have an Apple Watch, you should be able to redownload it I’d think...

    It's here on my iPhone and Apple TV.
    But nowhere to be seen on my iPad Pro 12.9" 2020 and iPad mini 5 (2019).

    I am starting to think that it isn't so much that we are waiting for the app to push to the store, but for them to fix the bug that is preventing anyone from downloading it on iPad.  Seems like something they should have had working over a month ago...  But you know how it is with these small startups like Apple, they don't have the funds to make sure the basics are working at launch time... (may have been a small amount of sarcasm in there)

    Given this is a paid service, it's the worst service launch since Apple Maps. At least that one was free. Is Forstall back?

    ProRaw? A bit late Apple. DNG files have been available with Lightroom Mobile for a while. Please stop trying to make old into new.

    Quick update, the iPad app seems to be available for download now.  You still seem to have to find it through the direct link, though.

    Here is the link again:

    Thanks - I discovered the bug the prevents mail from using groups last week - very frustrating. Going to update now and see if it fixes things.

    Good thing this App Privacy overview !!!

    Just find out about an European "privacy oriented" cloud storage provider claiming that he's very different to US providers, but is tracking own subscribers all over the internet!
