Developer Hamza Sood revealed today on his Twitter account that he managed to hack his Apple Watch device, forcing it to accept custom watch faces, by bypassing Apple’s restrictions against installing third-party watch faces.
For almost the entire time the watch has been available, you’ve had to sign up through an online portal to set up an appointment to try it on at an Apple Store.
Leading up to the release of the Apple Watch earlier this year, it seemed that it might not be an easy process to actually get your hands on one. Customers are also no longer required to share their name and Apple ID with the store employee, according to a report from 9to5Mac.
If you wanted to have a play with an Apple Watch before committing to buying one, you would have to wait for an appointment at an Apple Store. This is done to help the customer remember the exact configurations they tried on, allowing them to buy the exact same setup online if they don’t make the purchase while still at the Apple Store.
Whilst most stuff sits out on the side however, anything above a cursory fondle of Apple’s debut smartwatch relied on an appointment-only system so that a representative could size you up and demo the Apple Watch personally. Apple Store employees told Mashable customers could usually just walk in for a try-on, with the appointment created on the spot.
The “Fast and Furious” actor then showed off his “Iced out Apple Watch” in his next post on the popular photo-sharing app along with a slew of hashtags, Digital Trends reported.
