Apple today announced that a new Black Unity Sport Band for the Apple Watch is available to order on Apple.com and in the Apple Store app starting today for $49. The band launches in select Apple Store locations on Tuesday, January 23.
Apple says the band’s “blooming flowers and vibrant colors” represent “Pan-Africanism and symbolize generations working together to address injustice and dismantle systemic barriers.” The band’s pin is etched with “Truth, Power, Solidarity.”
An accompanying Black Unity watch face will be available for the Apple Watch with watchOS 10.3, which will be released next week, according to Apple. Users can choose between a single-bloom or full-bloom arrangement for the watch face, and when they raise their wrist, the “flowers begin to bloom with vibrant hues.”
Apple is also adding a new Unity Bloom wallpaper to the iPhone and iPad with iOS 17.3 and iPadOS 17.3, which will both be released next week. Apple says the wallpaper “presents an outline of flowers that fill with color when the display is active.”
More details about this Black Unity collection and Apple’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative can be found in Apple’s press release.Related Roundup: Apple Watch Series 9Tag: Apple Watch BandsBuyer’s Guide: Apple Watch (Neutral)This article, “New Black Unity Band for Apple Watch Now Available to Order” first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
