Apple has unveiled two Pride Edition bands for the Apple Watch. Every year, Apple launches Pride Edition bands to extend its support to the LGBTQ community and to celebrate the Prime month, which is in June. Apple said that this year’s Pride Sport Loop showcases a color gradient with the word “pride” woven directly into the band. Along with the bands, the Cupertino-giant is also launching a new Shot on iPhone pride campaign on Instagram that will highlight the work of artists and figures within the global LGBTQ+ community.

“Members and allies of the LGBTQ+ creative community at Apple were inspired to deliver a new expression of pride through this unique design. Utilizing the comfortable, durable, and adjustable Sport Loop design, Apple used a new technique to remove several of the double-layer nylon-woven textile loops on the band to reveal the word “pride” in a cursive style inspired by the original “hello” greeting — displayed on the first Macintosh in 1984 — giving the word a novel, three-dimensional look and feel,”Apple noted in a blog post.

Apple Pride Edition Watchband

For the Pride  watchband this year, Apple used a new technique to remove several of the double-layer nylon-woven textile loops on the band to reveal the word “pride” in a cursive writing style inspired by the company’s iconic “hello” greeting that was displayed on the first Mac in 1984.

The team behind the watch used a colour gradient that incorporates the original rainbow colours with those drawn from various pride flags, including the flags representing transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals and black and Latino communities. The colours also represent those who are living with or have passed away from HIV/AIDS.

As part of Pride month, Apple is also releasing a new watch face that combines colours in a way that mirrors the woven loops of the Sport Loop. The watch face is composed of vibrant ‘threads’. When the Apple Watch is rotated, the display is tapped or the user’s wrist is raised, the colourful threads move.

The company is also including a new App Clip functionality within the band packaging which will make it simple and convenient for customers to immediately access the new matching watch face.
