A free repair will be offered to any customer whose Apple Watch Series 6 screen has gone permanently blank, whether it is done by Apple or an authorised service provider.
Apple announced a free repair program for a “very small percentage” of 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 units on Friday in a support article that was published on the company’s website. There is a possibility that the displays on these devices will become permanently blank.
Apple has stated that the affected models were manufactured between April and September of 2021. To see if they are eligible for a free screen replacement, customers can run a serial number check on their device using a tool made available by the manufacturer.
Program coverage begins two years after the “first retail sale,” meaning that any affected model sold before September 18th, 2022, is covered.
Either an Apple Authorized Service Provider or an Apple Retail Store will carry out the repair work on your computer. Because of this, Apple has stated that it may charge an additional fee for watches that have already been damaged.
This program does not, however, extend the standard warranty coverage of the Apple Watch, as stated by Apple.
At the company’s “Time Flies” media event in September 2020, the Apple Watch Series 6 will be introduced for the first time.
