has been involved in the global battle to cure AIDS and donates a portion of the proceeds of its (PRODUCT)RED products to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. The company has been doing this for 15 years. Until the end of 2022, half those proceeds will be donated to “Global Fund’s COVID‑19 response to mitigate the impact of COVID‑19 on the fight to end AIDS.”
For a limited time, Apple is offering six (PRODUCT)RED watch faces for the Apple Watch
To “celebrate” Apple’s involvement in raising money to fight AIDS and COVID-19, it is offering six Apple Watch watch faces in red that can be used on the Apple Watch Series 3 and later. To be compatible, an Apple Watch must have watchOS 7.4 or later installed and be paired with an iPhone running iOS 14.5 or later. There are six (PRODUCT)RED watch faces available including the new World Time face, Numerals Mono, Gradient, Stripes, Color, and Typograph.
To be clear, the Apple Watch Series 3 is compatible with only the Numerals Mono and Color watch faces. Those with an Apple Watch Series 4
and later can choose to download all six faces.
From Apple’s (PRODUCT)RED website you can add the special watch faces that you want to use
To add one of these watch faces you will need to grab your iPhone and open your mobile browser to www.apple.com/product-red/
. Scroll down to Apple Watch Faces and underneath each selection, you’ll see a button that says “Add Apple Watch Face.”
Tap on the (PRODUCT)RED watch face that you want to add. Following the prompts, you’ll be asked to download the file containing your selection to the Watch app via the share sheet. Press the button that says “Add to My Faces”. You’ll find the (PRODUCT)RED watch face you’ve chosen by opening the Watch app and tapping on the My Watch tab in the bottom left corner of the display.
You can select multiple watch faces from the (PRODUCT)RED website. Just make sure to follow the prompts to have all of your selections added to the My Faces menu inside the Watch app. The World Time face, which was just added to the Apple Watch this year, resembles those old Casio desk clocks that features an outer ring with the names of cities that correspond to the inner ring with the hour of the day on it.
If you want to know what the time is in New York City for example, you look up New York on the outer ring and see that it lines up with 16. The local time in the middle of the watch might say 6:21. So the time in New York City would be 16:21 or 4:21 pm. If that is too complicated, you can always find another watch face and use one of the complications, if available, to show the time in another city.
Apple has raised $270 million to fight global pandemics by offering (PRODUCT) RED products
If you need to know the time in more than once city on the Apple Watch, try the Infograph face. It allows you to set a complication showing the time in another city besides the one that you’ve set the watch to.
Apple’s (PRODUCT)RED website also offers the firm’s complete (PRODUCT)RED lineup which includes the iPhone 11
, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone SE (2020). Silicone cases in red are available for the complete iPhone 13 lineup, and leather cases can be purchased for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini
. Also offered is the Apple Watch Series 7 with an Aluminum Case and a Sport Band.
Other devices listed on the website are an iPod touch, Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones
, and a Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker. In case you were wondering, the first (PRODUCT)RED device was a special edition iPod nano created by U2’s Bono. Thus far, Apple and (RED) have collected $270 million to fight global pandemics.
