Apple Announces New Black History Month Collection
Apple announced the launch of its Black Unity Collection today in celebration of Black History Month that includes a special-edition Apple Watch Black Unity Sport Loop, matching iPhone wallpaper and a mosaic watch face. According to the company press release, the watch face and wallpaper designs will be available next week, along with its newest software updates: iOS 16.3 and WatchOS 9.3.
Starting in February, Apple will be offering a selection of Black History Month content for Apple TV, Fitness Plus, Music, Maps, Books, Podcasts and the App Store. The Smithsonian created a special set of guides that highlight landmarks and events from the Civil Rights Movement, and Dr. Jelani Cobb curated a lineup of films for the Apple TV app.

To display the Unity watch face, you must have a Watch Series 4 or later with WatchOS 9.3, an iPhone 8 or newer model, or an iPhone SE (second gen) or later that runs iOS 16.3. Along with the new watch face, the Unity iPhone wallpaper will drop next week. To run it, you’ll need to have an iPhone 8 or later model that runs iOS 16.3.
