A fresh watchOS 7 leak suggests Apple Watch will get a new “International” face this fall. Users will be able to choose which country’s flag to wear on their wrist with the time and other details displayed above it.

Apple’s next watchOS update is shaping up to be a big one, according to recent leaks. We’ve already heard about its upcoming fitness app, as well as improvements for parents, shareable faces, and a new “Infograph Pro” face.

The latest reveal, which comes from leaked iOS 14 code, indicates there will also be an “International” face option with various flags to choose from.

We must warn you that the details are slim for now. It’s not yet clear how many flags will be available, whether this will be an analog or digital face, or what kind of complications will be supported.

However, the images below, supposedly extracted from the iOS 14 leak, give us a taste of what some of the flags will look like on Apple Watch.

Other changes expected in watchOS 7 include sleep tracking support with a “Sleep” complication that will make useful information available at a glance.

When will watchOS 7 be available?

Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference, which would normally deliver our first previews of new iOS and watchOS updates, is unlikely to go ahead this June as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. However, it is believed Apple is still on track to release the updates this fall.

If that’s the case, we should still get previews and betas this summer, giving developers time to take advantage of new features and improvements. It’s just not yet clear how they will be showcased.
