If you were hoping to buy an Apple Watch band in Denim Blue or Red Raspberry, you might already be out of luck. Many of the Spring Apple Watch bands, which were first announced in March, are already sold out.
As MacRumors first noted, the following bands in the limited-edition 2018 Spring Collection are already maked as “currently unavailable” in the United States, both online and at Apple retail stores:
- 38mm Classic Buckle in Electric Blue
- 38mm Classic Buckle in Soft Pink
- 42mm Classic Buckle in Soft Pink
- 38mm Sport Band in Lemonade
- 42mm Sport Band in Lemonade
- 38mm Sport Band in Denim Blue
- 42mm Sport Band in Denim Blue
- 42mm Sport Loop in Marine Green
- 42mm Nike Sport Loop in Pearl Pink
- 38mm Nike Sport Band in Barely Rose/Pearl Pink
- 42mm Nike Sport Band in Barely Rose/Pearl Pink
Apple hasn’t said whether these bands are gone for good or if more supplies will be available shortly. With the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) scheduled to begin on Monday, June 5, however, it could be the former.
In 2017 at WWDC, Apple introduced a Summer lineup of Sport Bands for Apple Watch in Mist Blue, Pollen, and Flamingo, alongside a Pride Edition of the Woven Nylon band. These limited-edition bands were gone by last Fall.
The Apple Watch was first announced in September 2014 with the first-generation model launching in April 2015. Since then, the company has introduced both the Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 lineups. The 2018 “Apple Watch Series 4” coming this fall is likely to include a new design with a 15 percent larger screen. It’s not yet known whether existing bands will work with the new version.
Besides new Apple Watch bands, WWDC 2018 could also see the arrival of new Macs, new iPad Pros, and next-generation software versions of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
