To mark Black History Month, Apple is offering a Unity Challenge badge. You’ll need to close the move rings seven days in a row to earn it. The company has also revealed a limited-edition Black Unity Collection Apple Watch.
February is known as Black History Month. This is an annual observance of the ongoing fight for racial justice also known as African-American History Month. So far it has received official recognition from the United States and Canada. It is also honored in other countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Netherlands.
This is the first time the Cupertino-based outfit is holding the Unity Challenge. Users should start receiving notifications what they need to do win a medal in the Activity app. Additional prizes should come in the form of stickers for use in Messages and FaceTime.
Basically, you will need to close the move ring seven days in a row during the month February. Interestingly, a few users have already reported receiving the badge on February 1st. This means Apple has mistakingly awarded them for their efforts in January! The company must have programmed it incorrectly.
This is the second challenge in 2021. The first was the Apple Watch ‘Ring in the New Year’ challenge. That one required users to complete the exact same task – close the activity rings for seven consecutive days.
A few days ago the company announced a limited-edition Black Unity Collection. This version of the Series 6 device comes with a Black Unity Sport Band and a Unity watch face. The design of all of this is inspired by colors from the Pan-African flag. The words “Truth. Power. Solidarity.” are laser-engraved onto the closure.
