Every year, Apple unveils new watch faces and bands in honor of Pride month. And a new leak via 9to5Mac has given us a sneak peek of what's in store.

Twitter user @aaronp613 has offered a glimpse at this year's Pride Watch face, showcasing a confetti-inspired design featuring the colors of the LGBTQIA+ flag. 

The watch face sports a unique twist with a yellow hand, which users will be able to customize to their preferred rainbow hue.

And the accompanying watch band also matched the design

With International Day Against Homophobia observed on 17 May, it seems Apple could potentially unveil the 2023 Apple Watch Pride then. This tallies with the last few years, and the announcement has always arrived around mid-May.

Apple is a long-time advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights, and it annually releases Pride bands and watch faces to empower community members in displaying their pride. That also includes financial support to LGBTQIA+ organizations.

Currently, the 2022 editios Apple Watch Pride Sport Loop and Pride Nike Sport Loop watch bands can be purchased at the Apple Online Store for $49.
