New photos and videos purporting to show a prototype of an Apple Watch, hidden in a security holster that resembles a small iPod, offer a rare look behind the guise of product development for the company infamous for the secrecy built by Steve Jobs. first He joked a few months ago By a Twitter user Apple demoIn this article, this is our first look at what device was launched and running Apple’s internal development apps on a pre-watchOS 1.0 version of the software.
The video starts by showing what appears to be the original cardboard packaging used to deliver the prototype devices to the testers. The label reads “This product is classified as classified by Apple and is designated as” Ultra “security software.” This prototype must be returned when called or when you have it, “the label says before it is masked to hide the device’s assets. The label on the back of the The prototype device itself is a ‘PVTe’ configuration, which presumably means prototype validation testing (engineering) in line with language seen in previous Apple development devices, such as Leaked EVT board for the original iPhone.
When we turn on the touch screen, we can see that it is configured to show Apple’s own internal applications. One of them is “Lisa tester,” which is identified with the Lisa Simpson icon but likely a tribute to Jobs’s daughter and Apple’s Lisa computer name – one of the first computers to feature a GUI. The app allows testers to modify user interface elements of the Watch prototype. The “Springboard zoom” app inside Lisa Tester is very similar to the original watchOS home screen that shipped on the first Apple Watch in 2015.
There is no Digital Crown for navigation. Alternatively, the buttons on the right side of the case can be used for home and power. The Home button is never used in the front and what appears to be the Volume Up / Down buttons on the left and may not work. When you click on Settings, the device reports that it has not received FCC approval for sales, which adds additional confirmation of its prototype status.
Assuming the prototype is real – and it certainly looks this way – it’s a great example of a pre-production Apple device that you should never have seen.
