Apple this evening appears to have updated the way in which Apple Watch screenshots are presented in the App Store on iOS. Prior to this recent update, Apple Watch screenshots were shown as normal, rectangular screenshots, which looked unappealing and out of place. Now, Apple has added a black border to the screenshots and has given them rounded corners.

These changes make the apps look more realistic and similar to how they actually appear when running on Apple Watch. The refreshed screenshots are showing now on the iOS App Store, while the desktop version of the App Store still shows the original, borderless images.

Below are the new screenshots compared to the new, refined images. It’s certainly not a major change, but one that will definitely be welcomed by users.
