  • The new wallpapers are based on the Apple Watch face of the same name.
  • The wallpapers are part of Apple's Racial Equity and Justice Initiative.

Apple has released three new Unity Lights wallpapers designed for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The wallpapers are based on the Apple Watch face of the same name.

That new watch face was announced yesterday alongside a new Black Unity Braided Solo Loop band. All three new wallpapers borrow from that theme with Apple saying people can "show your support with these Afrofuturism‑inspired downloads."

All three wallpapers can be downloaded from Apple's website (opens in new tab) for free right now.

This collection, and the organizations it supports, is only a small part of the commitment Apple has made to challenge systemic barriers that exist for communities of color, and particularly for the Black community.

The new Black Unity band is particularly stunning and is priced at $99 (opens in new tab) like all other Braided Solo Loops. If you're planning to add a new watch band to your collection, this is one that deserves a closer look.

Inspired by Afrofuturism, the new Black Unity watch band and matching Unity Lights watch face symbolize the necessity for a more equitable future for the present generation of Black people.

The new band is available to order now with delivery expected within days. You don't have to wait that long to get your hands on these new wallpapers of course and the same goes for the Unity Lights Apple Watch face, too. You can find that in the Watch app on your iPhone and that won't cost you a penny either.

  • I didn't see those wallpapers on the site. If they're there, they're hidden.
  • "Afro-futurist inspired"???? You've got to be joking.
    There is absolutely *nothing* "Afro-futurist" about these wallpapers.
