Postado Abril 15, 2018

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.

Eligible devices are any 42mm Series 2 Apple Watch models in the Sport, Nike+, Hermès, and Edition lines. The company will now fix swollen batteries for free. Apple will also fix watches when the display pops out of place due to the same issue.

Don't worry if your Apple Watch Series 2 suddenly won't turn on because you might be eligible for a free fix by Apple.

"A swollen battery can prevent an Apple Watch from switching on or cause the screen to separate from the unit's frame", notes digital outlet MacRumors.

The smartwatch doesn't have to be under warranty and "Apple will authorise coverage for eligible devices for three years after the original date of purchase", MacRumors reported. The fix umbrella will cover up to three years after purchase in other words, you likely have until 2019 or 2020.

Customers looking for a refund on a previously paid Apple Watch Series 2 battery replacement should contact support.

Will you be taking advantage of Apple's revised service agreement?

The first-generation Apple Watch (Series o) seemingly suffered from the same problem, with Apple implementing a similar 3-year fix program for affected users.
