Share

Apple is offering free, out of warranty repairs to customers effected by a swollen battery or power issues on their Apple Watch Series 2 according to a note shared by the company on their GSX portal on Friday, reports MacRumors.

Additionally, force-restarting the device, done by pressing and holding both the side button and digital crown for 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

According to an internal document first obtained by MacRumors, which was distributed to certain Apple Stores and authorised service providers, the fix covers only 42mm-sized Series 2 units covering all its models - Sport, Edition, Hermes and Nike+.

Apple will authorize coverage for eligible devices for three years after the original date of purchase.

Eligible devices are any 42mm Series 2 Apple Watch models in the Sport, Nike+, Hermès, and Edition lines. Moreover, any 38mm variant of the Apple Watch is also not eligible to apply.

These issues first came to light with the first-generation Watch in 2015, though there have been instances reported in recent months. If you own the Apple Watch Series 1 or Series 3, unfortunately, you are not eligible to apply for free repairs.

Speculation rife over Syria strike
British opposition lawmakers have called on May to give Parliament a vote before any military action. His latest tweet, on Thursday evening, said: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

It's somewhat unclear as to what is covered under the memo's mention of an Apple Watch Series 2 not powering on. In this case, a visual inspection will determine if there is an actual mechanical defect, and if so, Apple will replace the battery for free. Apple has nearly always replaced or serviced such devices and generally covers expanded batteries past the 1-year warranty date, regardless of a program such as this.

This is all for now, folks. Let us know in the comments.
