Faulty Apple Watch Series 2 battery? Apple will fix it for free

Share
Free servicing available for 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 units with expanding batteries

Fortunately those criteria are mainly that the Apple Watch be a 42mm Series 2 model.

The Cupertino giant will fix select Apple Watch Series 2 models that have a swollen battery or do not power on for free, according to a new service policy witnessed by MacRumors.

Good news for Apple Watch Series 2 owners: Apple has revised its service policy, introducing a clause that entitles 42mm variants for a free fix. The repairs must be scheduled through the Genius Bar and it is recommended that customers ensure that it will be a free fix prior to agreeing to service.

Customers have three years from the original date of purchase to take advantage of the free fix, after which they'll have to pay for the service (£82.44 in the UK). In addition to this, the company is said to provide assistance for up to 3-years after the initial purchase of the wearable.

In its summary, which has been published online, the report notes the toxic chemical was of "high purity". He said the codeword for the chemical weapons programme, which included Novichok, was "FOLIANT".

Repairs are limited to the 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 models, including Sport, Edition, Hermès, and Nike+ models. Moreover, any 38mm variant of the Apple Watch is also not eligible to apply. Thus far, there haven't been any reports of the Apple Watch Series 3 suffering from expanded battery issues, though it could still be too early to tell as such problems generally take sometime to manifest.

It's somewhat unclear as to what is covered under the memo's mention of an Apple Watch Series 2 not powering on.

Will you be taking advantage of Apple's revised service agreement? There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details. Let us know down in the comments!
