Apple has initiated a new program on the Apple Developers section which captures the interest of many accessory makers. It is Apple’s official “Made for Apple Watch” program. This allows third-party accessory makers to gain access to the design guidelines catered by Apple for the accessory makers to conform as they design band accessories for Apple Watch.

One of the amazing features is its inter-changeability of s bands and lugs whereby Apple Watch bands can be easily changed with the simple release buttons and lugs that secures the Apple Watch case.

Interested parties can refer to Apple’s new developer website, which provides the band design guidelines for the third-party bands. Although this release did not include the much anticipated hidden port which many will like to have information on, it does however, provide accessory makers the essential general arrangement drawings that is crucial for their next step in the custom band designs.
