February is Heart Month in the United States, and Apple wants to take advantage of an extra year to motivate its users to squeeze the health capabilities of its devices and services. There will be new content in Apple Fitness+, the App Store, Apple TV+, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books, confirmed by the company itself.

New campaigns in almost every service for you to take better care of your heart

In that same confirmation, we have comments from Apple COO Jeff Williams, who says the key for users to take their users’ health more seriously is to provide them with all the data that their device sensors can collect. . And for that, nothing better than various challenges and content:

On February 14, we’ll have a special Valentine’s Day prize for completing 30 minutes of exercise and closing the green ring: special medals and stickers will be given out in iMessage. The App Store will have a special section with apps dedicated to monitoring and improving our heart health. Apple Books will have a new section with books dedicated to heart and mental health, dealing with individual wellness and heart disease research. Apple is launching two new surveys in its Apple Heart and Movement Study, in collaboration with several hospitals in the United States. There will be a selection of fitness and wellness-focused movies to buy and/or rent digitally on Apple TV.

These contents focus on the North American continent, but there have been other occasions when something has also appeared in Spain. If you have an Apple Watch and think you don’t have enough, this February might be the time you’ve been waiting for.
