Apple will repair some Apple Watch 2 models that have swollen batteries or won’t power on for free.
Apple will fix some Apple Watch Series 2 devices if they have a swollen battery or don’t turn on, according to a new service policy seen by MacRumors.
The policy states that “some Apple Watch Series 2 devices may not power on or they may experience an expanded battery”. And that it will service “eligible devices free of charge.”
Also, only 42mm-sized models are eligible for free repairs. Which includes the Sport, Edition, Hermès, and Nike+ variants. This does not apply to Series 1 or three models, nor the 38mm model.
In 2017, Apple extended its service policy twice for first-generation Apple Watch models.
Especially in instances when the back cover separated from the watch, and for swollen batteries.
