Apple will fix Series 2 watch batteries for free

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.

Apple Watch Series 2 with expanded battery.

Owners of affected eligible devices can gain access to free servicing by visiting the Contact Apple Support page and clicking through the options for "Apple Watch" "Battery, Power, and Charging" "Bring in for Repair" in order to book an appointment for an assessment. An exact description of minimum requirements for eligibility was not included, but Apple is offering free repairs to those devices that do fall under the criteria.

More details are coming out about the SUV that went off a cliff in Northern California on March 26. Allman says DNA analysis from biological family members will be used to determine her identity.

Eligible devices are any 42mm Series 2 Apple Watch models in the Sport, Nike+, Herm├Ęs, and Edition lines. The fix umbrella will cover up to three years after purchase in other words, you likely have until 2019 or 2020. The policy is in place for at least the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. Apple will also fix watches when the display pops out of place due to the same issue.

It's somewhat unclear as to what is covered under the memo's mention of an Apple Watch Series 2 not powering on. 42mm Series 2 models plagued by either of these issues, including swollen batteries that have dislodged the display, are eligible for free repairs. Naturally, the device must be inspected by Apple employees to confirm what is causing the issue.

The new fix program mirrors a warranty update for first-generation Apple Watch models implemented previous year.
