Unlike Samsung and Google, Apple’s name is not found on the lengthy list of official 2020 Olympics sponsors, partners, and suppliers. But while that obviously means we won’t be getting any special editions of the company’s iPhone 12-series devices to officially celebrate the belated Games, nothing can stop the Cupertino-based tech giant from contributing to your national pride.
With the 32nd edition of the Summer Olympics scheduled to finally kick off in less than a month, you still have plenty of time to make sure you’ll be able to “boldly show your country support”… as long as you’re rooting for one of just 22 nations.
That may seem like a low number compared to the no less than 205 nations expected to be represented at this
last year’s Olympic Games, but it definitely beats the 14 countries that made it on the list of special Apple Watch
bands… sold in Brazil only back in 2016.
In addition to the US
, you can buy “soft, breathable, and lightweight” International Collection Sport Loop bands carrying the flag colors of Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, and Sweden directly from Apple’s local e-stores, as well as “select” physical locations around the world.
Obviously, the designs of these “limited-edition” bands are pretty straightforward… and as colorful as each flag allows, and if you really want to flaunt your patriotism, you can also download a matching Stripes watch face that will extend your national colors to the screen of your Apple Watch Series 4
, Apple Watch SE, or “later” model.
