To celebrate 15 years of partnering with (Product) RED to combat the gobal spread of AIDS, Apple is offering a selection of six Apple Watch faces in red available for download for Apple Watch Series 3 and later.
The faces are part of Apple’s watchOS 7 feature feature that lets you share faces with friends. To download them on your Apple Watch, you must visit Apple’s (RED) site on an iPhone and tap the “Add Apple Watch Face” button below the ones you want.
The faces available are World Time, Numerals Mono, Gradient, Stripes, Color, and Typograph, and all feature the color red prominently throughout. All faces are compatible with the Apple Watch Series 4 and later, with Numerals Mono and Color also available for the Apple Watch Series 3.
Along with the custom faces, Apple also spotlighted the rest of its (Product) RED devices, including the Apple Watch Series 7 and iPhone 13. It also is highlighting books and apps that spread awareness, and will donate $1 to the Global Fund for every Apple store purchase made with Apple through December 6.
Apple’s first (Product) RED device was a special-edition iPad nano in 2006 created by Bono from U2. Apple has since launched dozens of devices using the trademark color and raised nearly $300 million for the Global Fund.
Michael Simon has been covering Apple since the iPod was the iWalk. His obsession with technology goes back to his first PC—the IBM Thinkpad with the lift-up keyboard for swapping out the drive. He’s still waiting for that to come back in style tbh.
