The occasion is an annual United States public holiday that celebrates the service of persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries to mark the anniversary of the end of the first World War.
As first reported by 9to5Mac, on the big day users will need to do any workout that’s recorded through the Workout app, lasting 11 minutes or more. This will earn them a special Veterans Day-themed badge that will show up in the Activity app. The reward is only redeemable on November 11th so make sure you mark that date in your calendar.
Check out the animated app stickers you’ll be able to earn.
Apple’s last activity challenge was on August 30th, to celebrate national parks. On the same day in 2019, the company marked 100 years of the Grand Canyon National Park. In 2020 users were required to do a walk, run, hike or wheelchair workout of at least 1 mile. This was a bit easier than last year when you were required to do a 3 mile workout.
