Just in time for Pride month, Apple has released a special screen face that includes rainbow colored strings that are animated and interactive to the touch. Apple released the new feature with the iOS 11.4 and watchOS 4.3.1 and it was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) according to 9to5Mac.
The strings move each time you move your wrist to look at the time or if you tap your Apple watch’s screen.

In addition, Apple also released a Pride watch band that goes along with the new Apple watch face, reports Mashable. The new band is white with rainbow stripes along the nylon band. This is not the first time Apple has created Pride watch bands. In 2016, Apple released limited edition bands for their employees who participated in the San Francisco Pride Parade.
The band retails for $49 on the Apple website and stores across the US, UK, Australia, Japan, Germany, France, China, Canada, Brazil and more! Profits from the new band will go toward LGBTQ-supporting organizations like Gender Spectrum, GLSEN, ILGA, PFLAG, The National Center for Transgender Equality and The Trevor Project.
Celebrate Pride in style with your Apple watch, Henny!
