9to5Mac reports Apple is expected to debut a new Pride watch face during WWDC. The new watch face is said to be inspired by the rainbow flag, and is likely designed to match the limited edition Rainbow Pride Woven Nylon Apple Watch band Apple unveiled at last year’s WWDC event.
New strings found on iOS explain that the new face is “inspired by the rainbow flag” and that “the threads of color move if you tap the display.” There is also a placeholder image which will probably be displayed in the Watch app on iOS when you browse for faces. On watchOS, we found video assets used to render the watch face, so watch the preview at the bottom of this post.
Every time you touch the screen, the face is going to move in a different way.
The watch face is set to become available this coming Monday, June 4 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time. It is expected to be made available to all iOS users at that time via an over-the-air update to watchOS 4.3.1.
A Twitter user changed the date on his Watch, and the new face showed up, as seen below.

Hopefully the new watch face will be joined by other faces, but that remains to be seen.
Apple and its employees always join in the San Francisco Pride celebrations, which will be held on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 this year.
