Apple will fix Apple Watch Series 2 for free

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. Fortunately those criteria are mainly that the Apple Watch be a 42mm Series 2 model. The company will now fix swollen batteries for free.

The program is limited to 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 variants, suggesting the same battery issues are not as prevalent on 38mm models.

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". The fix umbrella will cover up to three years after purchase in other words, you likely have until 2019 or 2020.

Notification of the new fix policy was sent to service providers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe, suggesting the initiative is a worldwide effort.

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

Users on forums such as Reddit and Apple's support website have noted of instances where their Apple Watch battery seemingly expanded without reason. Apple will also fix watches when the display pops out of place due to the same issue. While not a widespread issue, battery swelling can cause power interruptions, operational issues or, in some cases, dislodged displays.

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