    Apple at WWDC is expected to introduce a new pride watch face, reports 9to5Mac. The upcoming watch face is "inspired by the rainbow flag" and is likely designed to match the limited edition Rainbow Pride Woven Nylon Apple Watch band that Apple released at WWDC last year.

    Code for the new watch face was found in iOS 11.4 and watchOS 4.3.1, and it appears that the new watch face will animate with moving threads of color that shift whenever the display is tapped.

    The watch face will become available on Monday, June 4 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time, which suggests it will be made available to all iOS users through an over-the-air update to watchOS 4.3.1. On Twitter, a user was able to change the date on his Apple Watch and the new face showed up, confirming it will release for everyone just after the keynote event wraps up.

    It is not clear if Apple has any other pride-related announcements in store to accompany the new watch face, such as a new pride band. It is also not known if Apple plans to release additional watch faces with watchOS 5, but last year's watchOS 4 release did include new faces.

    Apple always celebrates San Francisco Pride and participates in the parade, with the event set to take place on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 this year, so it makes sense for the company to release a new rainbow Apple Watch face ahead of that date.

    I'd love it if they had all kinds of flag variants. But honestly why don't they allow 3rd party watch faces yet?

    I'm not sure why watch faces are news, but m'kay. A rainbow flag is a good addition. Shouldn't be controversial.

    I think it’d be cool during pride month, but that’d be the only time I’d use it.

    I didn’t see the disclaimer at the bottom of the post when I first posted, but maybe they just forgot to add it and it was always here in PRSI.

    Either way, yeah, it was pretty much designed for PRSI even though it shouldn’t be.

    I just want more flexibility on the watch faces. I'd love a square face with Roman numerals for occasional use or a Modular with 6 small complications (three in the middle vs one large one) for an app launchers. Or maybe Siri face with 3rd party plugins.

    Might as well make a BLM, Feminism, SJW and so on Pride face while you’re at it. Don’t want to offend anyone nowadays :)

    We still can't safely walk down the street. Can you please just let us have a watch face?

    Wait, so you really can't download 3rd party watch faces? That seems rather strange. Then again, not really being that it's an apple product...

    It’s the same idiocy from the “soon they’re gonna want to marry toasters” crowd.

    These days that wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    Definitely is not ROYGBIV. He must have missed science class when they talked about what causes rainbows. haha

    I know, god forbid two consenting adults want to marry. That’s exactly the same as wanting to marry inanimate objects. :rolleyes:
