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.

Look out for Apple’s next Activity Challenge on Veterans Day

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. In fact, it is unchanged since the challenge first appeared back in 2017.

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. But a nice gesture, nevertheless.

Apple’s last activity challenge was on August 26th, to celebrate National Parks Day around the globe. That task required users to do a walk, run, hike or wheelchair workout that lasted for at least 20 minutes.

Before that you have to go all the way back to April. On the 22nd of that month, the challenge allowed users to earn a special badge, as long as they logged 30 or more minutes of exercise on Earth Day.
