Apple Watch Pride Edition Shall Support LGBTQ Community

Apple Goes Pride Illustration

Apple releases two new Apple Watch Bands to support the LGBTQ Community during Corona.

In times of corona and social distancing, support for the LGBTQ community has also shifted to the net. Apple now wants to show its own support together with Nike through two Apple Watch Edition models, which are essentially based on two new Apple Watch Bands.

The corresponding watchfaces will be published with watchOS 6.2.5. Organisations supported by Apple and Nike include GLSEN, PFLAG, The Trevor Project, Gender Spectrum, The National Center for Transgender Equality and ILGA World. It is not clear whether the proceeds from the Apple Watch models will go directly to support these organisations or whether it is more of a general support.
