Apple will fix Apple Watch Series 2 for free

Apple will fix Apple Watch Series 2 for free

"Apple has determined that under certain conditions, some Apple Watch Series 2 devices may not power on or they may experience an expanded battery", said a document sent to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

Apple Watch users have for years complained of expanded, or swollen, batteries across multiple device generations.

Apple this week initiated a new service program that grants free, out of warranty repairs to Apple Watch Series 2 owners whose device suffers from a swollen battery or refuses to turn on.

The program appears to be limited to Apple Watch Series 2 42mm models, suggesting that the issue is not present on the 38mm models. If you own the Apple Watch Series 1 or Series 3, unfortunately, you are not eligible to apply for free repairs. Apple will service eligible devices free of charge. The fix umbrella will cover up to three years after purchase in other words, you likely have until 2019 or 2020.

The bulging battery issue is affecting some Apple Watch Series 2 devices.

This is a bit different than the temporarily discounted battery replacement program that Apple put into effect for some of its iPhone devices.

The reasons behind Apple Watch Series 2 not turning on for some users is unclear at this point and the memo does not shed enough light on it as well. Apple notes, however, that all models will be subject to a "visual-mechanic" inspection prior to service. Like most lithium-ion battery packs, the pouches used to power Apple Watch are susceptible to swelling and expanding when punctured, overcharged, overheated or otherwise damaged.
