Apple unveils new ‘Black Unity Collection’ supporting its ‘Racial Equity and Justice Initiative’

Wednesday January 17, 2024. 04:57 PM , from Mac Daily News
“Blooming flowers and vibrant colors in the new Apple Watch Black Unity face represent Pan-Africanism and symbolize generations working together to address injustice and dismantle systemic barriers,” Apple Inc. said in a statement
With the launch of the 2024 “Black Unity Collection,” Apple is awarding grants to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Studio Museum in Harlem, Battersea Arts Centre, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Ghetto Film School, and the National Museum of African American Music. Apple’s support for these organizations is a continuation of “Racial Equity and Justice Initiative” grants that resource organizations committed to providing economic, educational, and creative opportunities in communities of color around the world.
Using a unique layering process, the Apple Watch Black Unity Sport Band features an arrangement of flowers molded abstractly across the band utilizing red, green, and yellow colors.
The Apple Watch Black Unity Sport Band features an arrangement of flowers molded abstractly across the band utilizing red, green, and yellow colors. Inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Black communities around the world, Apple used a unique layering process for the flowers to create tiny variations in each band’s design, ensuring no two bands are exactly alike. The pin of the band is coated with a durable diamond-like carbon finish that features an etching of the words “Truth, Power, Solidarity” alongside one of four symbolic flower emblems.
iPhone and iPad users can “show their support,” Apple says, with the new Unity Bloom wallpaper for their Lock Screen, which presents an outline of flowers that fill with color when the display is active.

Users can choose between a full-bloom or single-bloom arrangement, and when they raise their wrist, the flowers begin to bloom and fill with vibrant hues. iPhone and iPad users can also show their support with the new Unity Bloom wallpaper for their Lock Screen, which presents an outline of flowers that fill with color when the display is active.
