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. In other countries it is celebrated to mark the anniversary of the end of the first World War.
As first reported by Macrumours, 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. All of this is unchanged from last year.
Check out the animated app stickers you’ll be able to earn. Some people are getting addicted to snapping up these little rewards. In our mind, anything that helps get us moving is a positive thing.
An interesting fact some might not know. Apple gives a 10% discount to veterans and immediate family members that live in the same home with them. As far as we are aware, this is for online purchases only.
Apple’s last activity challenge was on August 27th, to celebrate National Parks Day around the globe. That task required users to do a walk, run, hike or wheelchair workout of at least 1 mile.
Before that we saw the International Yoga Day Challenge. It required Apple Watch owners to complete a yoga workout lasting 20 minutes or more on June 21st. Prior to that we saw the International Dance Day challenge on April 29th.
