Today is Veterans Day, a public holiday observed annually on November 11 that honors men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. In honor of 2016 Veterans Day, Tim Cook tweeted out a photo of some of the veterans who work at Apple.

The App Store’s “For Those Who Serve” section provided resources on “military news, essential health and wellness info and valuable tools for everyday life” and Apple Music promoted playlists curated by former service members. 

The App Store’s special 2016 Veterans Day section provides nearly four dozen cherry-picked apps divided into three distinct categories: News, Resources and Welness.




Apple is honoring today’s Veterans Day in ways more than one.
