How to enable Apple Watch’s new Pride faces in watchOS 6.2.5

Apple Watch’s newest update is out with some new features and a number of new Pride faces. Here’s how to enable them in watchOS 6.2.5.

The new Pride faces aren’t completely new — they are actually fresh color options for a number of existing Apple Watch faces. So, enabling them isn’t quite as obvious as new faces might be.

When you know where to look, however, it takes just a minute to hunt them down. Here’s how.

Show your Pride with new Apple Watch faces

In addition to new takes on the Pride Analogue and Pride Digital faces, there are now Pride options for the California, Numerals Duo, and Numerals Mono faces.

To enjoy them, first ensure your iPhone and Apple Watch are running the latest software updates (iOS 13.5 and watchOS 6.2.5, respectively), then follow the tutorials below.

On Apple Watch:

  1. Press firmly on Apple Watch’s display to view face options.
  2. Swipe to the end of the row and tap New.
  3. Select one of the faces mentioned above (if you already have one of these set up that you would like to change, find it and tap Customize).
  4. Select your face style (where available) and swipe right until you find the color options.
  5. Turn the Digital Crown until you find the Rainbow option.
  6. Press firmly again to save your setup.

On iPhone:

  1. Open the Watch app.
  2. Tap the Face Gallery tab.
  3. Select one of the faces mentioned above (if you already have one of these set up that you would like to change, select that under My Faces instead).
  4. Under the Color options, select Rainbow.
  5. Finish customizing your face style, then tap Add at the top of the screen. This sends your new face to your Watch.

Can’t find the new Rainbow options?

There is a chance you might not find the new Rainbow color options. It turns out that some users have encountered a bug in watchOS 6.2.5 that prevents the new designs from being available.

Sadly, there’s no way to fix this. We are waiting for Apple to issue another software update that will eliminate the problem — hopefully it won’t take long — but all we can do for now is wait.

My Thoughts on SwitchEasy PaperLike iPad Screen Protector

Lengthy product title....Yes, I ordered this screen protector based on Cult of Mac's product description that it's like writing on paper. Bottom line...it's a far better screen protector that aids "writing" with an Apple Pencil (I have the 1st gen version), greatly reduces finger prints (always good) when using the Apple Pencil, input is immediate and precise. I'm a lefty and this screen protector allows minimal effort when writing electronically. I'm not an artist so I cannot rate how this screen protector handles an artist's desires. I will say my primitive artwork (cups, objects, etc.) drawn with my iPencil are spot on and represent my vision for my coffee cups, primitive as they may be,.

Overall, I have no buyer's regrets for this purchase. However, some caveats...the application instructions are verrry sparse (A and B on two tabs, that's it). Once on, the tactile sensation is different...it has a "pebbly" like feel when you run your finger over the screen protectors surface. It's a strange sensation that always surprises me, yet, its this "pebbly" surface that allows the user to work their magic, whether writing or drawing as well as keeping fingerprints to a minimum. For use on a iPad, it works wonderfully and will capture your vision. However, this screen protector will never feel the same as writing with a fountain pen on quality paper.

Again, no buyer's remorse...just my thoughts on a quality product that works well on an iPad.

Very nice metal strap

Looks good, quality feels good as well.

Cute, yet effective protection for my AirPods Pro

This AirPods Pro case fits pretty snugly, and seems to protect my AirPods pretty well. Wireless charging through the case works great -- and it is also easy to access the Lightning charging port on the bottom. The ring for attaching to a backpack or belt loop is fairly solid. And it looks like a tiny suitcase :) Overall, it works great for me!

DISAPPOINTED

Unfortunately, the leather is beginning crack and the color is coming off with the cracking.
I have only had this watch band a short time, so I feel this should not be happening.

Good morning, Thank you for your feedback, and I apologize that you are not satisfied with your item, but it sounds like the item you received, maybe defective. If you are able to send me an image of the item we can get this issue resolved for you. My email is adel@cultofmac.com
Many thanks, Adel.

Awesome hold, super useful

First time I’ve used a 3M stick mount and it’s holding really well on the stick side, no sign it’s weakening. On the magnet side the phone never falls out, but it will slide off if you try to put a lightning cable in or pull one out from the phone while it’s mounted. That’s a real nitpick because otherwise it’s an awesome mount.
