New images have emerged showing what appears to be an Apple Watch Prototype. The device somehow manages to avoid damage and features fully functional internal software and development settings.
Images of the prototype Apple Watch were discovered by Apple Demo Twitter account. The old device is surrounded by a safety case that hides the device from the clear appearance of the watch. The device is a pre-Digital Crown with only two buttons on the left side, and the home button looks like one of the types included in the box.
The software is pre-watchOS 1.0 and the Apple Demo proves that the internal architecture works with a variety of UI images and more. Going back to the Apple Lisa computer from the 1980s, even Lisa Simpson is used as an app icon on the Apple Watch prototype “Lisa Tester”.
This is where the “Springboard zoom” app comes in, which includes an interactive experience of what the watchOS home screen will be like.
