Apple watch Series 2 Battery Problems April 19 2018

Apple will repair select Apple Watch Series 2 models that do not power on or have a swollen battery free of charge as part of a new service policy. Apple has determined that under certain conditions, some Apple Watch Series 2 devices may not power on or they may experience an expanded battery," wrote Apple, in an internal document distributed to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers on Friday.

A swollen battery can prevent an Apple Watch from powering on or cause the display to burst open. Photos of the issue have been shared by customers in the Apple Support Communities and MacRumors forums in recent months, but the majority of the incidents are first-generation models released in 2015. Eligibility is limited to any 42mm-sized Apple Watch Series 2 models, including Sport, Edition, Herm├Ęs, and Nike+ variants, pending a visual-mechanical inspection, according to a companion document numbered OP1977. The warranty status of the Apple Watch does not affect coverage, the document states. So if your series 2 watch looks like the one above take it into Apple and let them work there magic. for the full article click here https://www.macrumors.com/2018/04/14/apple-watch-s2-swollen-battery-service-policy/
