A huge Apple Watch window display is coming to your local Apple Store

The new displays for the Apple Watch launch will be going up on Friday, April 10 — the same day that in-store try-on appointments and Apple Watch pre-orders begin. The hexagonal grid of circles is meant to evoke the circular icons and grid layout of the Apple Watch app launcher.

As described by 9to5Mac:

Each circle is packed with Mac mini-powered LED lights that will show off different colors, patterns, and effects throughout the day. The new front of store visuals will continue to stay live after the Apple Watch launches on April 24th as Apple can simply remove the "Coming Soon" label.

Apple has had a history of installing both flashy and minimalist displays for new device launches, though it's clear from this reported display that Apple's pulling out all the stops for the Apple Watch launch.

  • Trypophobia anyone?
  • That's not actually a real thing though, so anyone expecting to sue Apple over it is going to be out of luck.

  • Did you actually read what you linked? " Thousands of people claim to have the condition,[2] but it is not recognized as a condition in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or other scientific literature.[3][2]" So, no evidence that it is a real thing, confirming his statement.
  • Yeah, and the DSM is also understood (by anyone who knows it) to be VERY liberal about what they "let in" as a "real" syndrome or disease. It's contained things like Childhood Ritual Satanic Abuse Syndrome and Alien Abduction Syndrome in the past (before they realised that those were all bull). I didn't mean to be a jerk about it either. I just meant that those hyper-sensitive types who are going to get all funny when they see the display, and ask Apple to take it down or save the children or whatever, will be out of luck with their complaint. As they should be.
  • So someone is going to freak out or get sick over a bunch of colored circles placed in a honeycomb pattern? Seriously?
  • Lol who cares. It's not a recognized phobia that a tiny tiny minority claim to possess. Sucks to be them, Posted via the iMore App for Android
