The April Earth Day challenge and Dance Day challenge follow the the February heart month challenge, and for those curious, it does appear that Apple has trimmed down the number of activity challenges that it is offering in 2024.

Why not create an award for getting moving.. and taking an old device to Apple Store for recycling?

That would fit in better with the earth day celebration.

A continuous 30 minute workout? On a Monday?


I squeeze in a workout when I can. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes, other times it might be 20 or 10. I try to get something in, though.
