Apple’s watchOS 6.2.5 Beta Adds New Pastel-Like Pride Watch Faces

Apple’s recent release of watchOS 6.2.5 to developers had a surprise in store – new Pride wallpapers. Apple has long had Pride-related wallpapers – and bands – available, but the change is most welcome.

The new faces are customization options for the Pride Digital, Pride Analog, and Gradient watch faces. The new modes offer the same Pride-related colors but tone things down a tad with almost pastel-like shades. The addition of a new Gradient offering is certainly a striking option, too.

Apple first introduced the Prude watch face during the WWDC event in 2018. A year later things got a refresh and it looks likely that is going to happen this time around, too. Apple’s online-only 2020 WWDC event will take place next month.

The 2020 refresh is definitely a more modern look than the previous watch face iterations and we’d suggest the new 2020 versions are the best ones yet. The folks at 9to5Mac have been able to share all three of them – 2018, 2019, and 2020 versions – so take a look and see what you think for yourself.

There’s no indication when watchOS 6.2.5 is going to be made available to the public, but it’s likely it will happen next month during the WWDC event at the very latest.

WWDC 2020 will be held entirely online for the first time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The event will be free to registered developers for the first time, too.

Update: The release also contains rainbow colors for the Numerals Mono, Numerals Duo and the California face which can be seen below.
