Apple 'recalls' Watch 2

Image result for apple watch series 2 repair kit

Batteries are the bane of mobile device makers-companies have to ensure that battery life is sufficient, and just as importantly, are well constructed and won't die prematurely or, even worse, overheat and catch on fire and explode. The repairs must be scheduled through the Genius Bar and it is recommended that customers ensure that it will be a free fix prior to agreeing to service.

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.

The document also states that "Apple will authorize coverage for eligible devices for three years after the original date of purchase". The free fix only applies to Series 2 watches in the 42mm variant and that includes all models of this watch.

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. Apple has noted that all models of the Apple Watch Series 2 will be a subject to "visual-mechanic" inspection before the inspection takes place.

Apple released the Apple Watch Series 2 in September of 2016, so the oldest models at this point are around 19 months old. Apple has nearly always replaced or serviced such devices and generally covers expanded batteries past the 1-year warranty date, regardless of a program such as this.

Users have experienced their Apple Watch Series 2 batteries expanding in size without any reason.

Apple implemented a similar policy regarding those as well.

The updated policy does not apply to the Apple Watch Series 1 or Series 3.
