New Pride Watch Faces Available in watchOS 5.2.1

The watchOS 5.2.1 update released today includes several rainbow-colored Pride watch faces that are new to the Apple Watch face gallery.

There's a new 2019 digital pride Apple Watch face, which, like the 2018 pride watch face features rainbow stripes that wiggle when tapped or when your wrist is raised. Instead of six spaced out rainbow lines with black behind them, the new watch face features rainbow stripes that take up the entirety of the watch face in eight colors.

Apple has also added two new Pride Analog faces, one that's square shaped and one that's round, both with analog hands. The new analog watch faces change colors each time the wrist is raised, and wiggle like the rainbow stripe face. Each of the new watch faces support a limited number of complications.

For the last several years, Apple has debuted new pride Apple Watch bands during WWDC, and the company is likely to introduce another new rainbow design this year, which could feature solid stripes like the watch face.

Apple participates in the San Francisco Pride Parade every year in support of the LGBTQ community. Apple employees march in the parade, Apple creates dedicated t-shirts, and also hosts other celebrations throughout the month of June.

I genuinely don’t understand why or how sex has become a thing that so many people feel the need to tout so publicly. What a strange reality we live in.

To be clear, this is just an observation. Not a political comment.

I'm going to chime in, because I once believed that as well. While I'm mostly a "keep it in the bedroom and enjoy" to whatever floats anyones boat, the idea behind Pride andbeing loud about it, is because historically, those who were LGBTQS2 are often punished, discriminated against and in some places, beaten to death just for being who they are.

The pride and shouting it out loud is a way of saying "I'm here, I'm queer, and I'm not going to hide for any bigot"

Even though I'm not LGBTQS2 myself, I consider myself a friend, and I support their message because of the way I used to think about silencing them. again, I didn't want to silence it because i'm against it, I just didn't understand WHY and WHAT pride stood for. I always thought it was just an excuse for them to wave dicks around in public. It is not.

We live in a "me, me, look at me" era, where people are convinced (and convinced themselves) that the world cares about their sexuality, tastes, life, cats/puppies, possessions, habits, kids, etc to a point that has reached the insane. Sexuality is just a tiny portion of it.

(On topic, I do not like the faces, way too busy in my opinion)

Where are the religious watch faces? Oh wait... Apple would never allow having something for everyone. How inclusive of them.

Someone else having support doesn't equate to hate against you.

stop trying to make everything about your own victimhood.. especially when nobody is actively persecuting you.

Because it’s not really about sex. When you see a man and woman walk down the street holding hands are they flaunting their sexual activities? No. It’s romance, family, relationships, life.
