The Apple Watch Could Soon Support Third-Party Watch Faces

The Apple Watch Could Soon Support Third-Party Watch Faces

The document notes that "some" Apple Watch Series 2 models will not power on or exhibit a swollen battery "under certain conditions".

The eagle-eyed 9to5Mac has spotted an interesting reference in the new watchOS 4.3.1 beta which suggests this could soon change, though.

The code was found in the watchOS beta's NanoTimeKit, the framework that handles watch face configurations, which is usually inaccessible to developers.

The new beta includes a NanoTimeKit developer tools server for watch face customization that, in its current state, appears created to communicate with Xcode.

Accompanying the developer tools server is a log message that reads, "This is where the 3rd party face config bundle generation would happen".

Apple is certainly no stranger when it comes to battery-related issues concerning its products, ranging from battery shortages impacting the company's ability to fix older MacBooks to an iPhone battery overheating and smoking in an Apple Store, forcing its evacuation.

Such integration would be a first for Apple, a company known to keep major user-facing features under tight control.

The updated policy does not apply to the Apple Watch Series 1 or Series 3.

The Apple Watch Series 2 is considerably old and for some users, the wearable's battery expands. Shortly after the first-generation Apple Watch launched in 2015, a developer was able to roll his own watch face source code compatible with the then-new watchOS 2. To this point, if scuffed up your screen and wanted a new face for your smartwatch, official Apple options were the only game in town. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
