But there's a (big) caveat: the gratis maintenance service is in place strictly for devices suffering from battery issues, according to a leaked internal document.

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".

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.

If you're wondering what models are regarded as eligible devices, you should note it down that the Apple Watch Series 2 in 42mm size which can be the Sports, Nike+, Hermes or even the Apple Watch Edition variant.

Apple released the Apple Watch Series 2 in September of 2016, so the oldest models at this point are around 19 months old.

A referee with more experience would not have blown his whistle and decided not to become the protagonist of the match. If it is to be the 40-year-old's European farewell, it was a sad way to end. "He did not deserve that", Zidane said.


The first-generation Apple Watch (Series o) seemingly suffered from the same problem, with Apple implementing a similar 3-year fix program for affected users.

To remedy the problem, Apple says it is offering to service eligible devices for free.

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

This is all for now, folks. The company will service eligible devices for up to three years after the original purchase. Let us know in the comments.
