The new Fire, Vapor, Water and Liquid Metal faces are more special than meets the eye. Rather than render them in CGI software, Apple has actually set things on fire in a studio, using real water and vapor elements to create these gorgeous new motion faces in the watchOS 5 software.
A brand new Pride face for your Apple Watch has been discovered in watchOS. Featuring nicely animated threads of color, it’s scheduled to become available next Monday, June 4 at 12pm Pacific Time. Here’s how to activate your Apple Watch Pride face right now.
watchOS 4 provides several new watch faces, including the painstakingly crafted Toy Story ones. In our hands-on video, Andrew shows off Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear and other newly added Toy Story-themed animations in watchOS 4.
Apple limits some of their watch face designs to certain Apple Watch models. For example, the Hermès and Nike editions of Apple Watches offer their own unique faces that can’t be accessed on any other Apple Watch. Or at least, not without an iPhone jailbreak…
iOS developer Ayden Panhuyzen has been trying to port these faces to other models of the Apple Watch for quite some time, and he appears to be demonstrating success in his endeavors. As a result, the jailbreak tweak dubbed SpecialFaces is now in beta. If you’re wondering how to get the Hermès and Nike+ faces on your Apple Watch, this is how.
The Apple Watch Nike+ is available as of yesterday and our resident video editor Andrew O’Hara just published a video showing off its design and features. As we mentioned many times before, the Apple Watch Nike+ is literally the Apple Watch Series 2 with some exclusive features.
Now, exclusivity comes in the form of unique Nike-inspired bands and Nike-themed watch faces and complications that are not available on regular Series 2 devices. Here’s our hands-on with the watch faces and complications that Nike and Apple jointly designed for the Apple Watch Nike+ edition.
