3rd-party Apple Watch faces may quickly change into the norm, in keeping with code not too long ago exposed within the first watchOS 4.3.1 beta by way of 9to5Mac.

In keeping with a weekend document:

Considered one of its strategies has an overly fascinating log message:

There are some vital issues price taking into consideration. First, even with the code, third-party Apple Watch faces haven’t been applied. 2nd, Apple may simply take away this code in long term variations of watchOS.

With this 12 months’s International Builders Convention (WWDC) only a few weeks away, lets pay attention extra about third-party Apple Watch faces quickly.

Within the intervening time, Steve Troughton-Smith notes the code may no longer imply the rest:

…haven’t third-party watch face config bundles been a factor for years? I wouldn’t get too occupied with a log message simply but https://t.co/Ms1pyhPaAG https://t.co/EPbSbuceD6
