If you have an Apple Watch, Apple could repair it for free

Of course, it does not refer to all Apple Watch or all faults, logically. And it seems that Apple has just extended the coverage period of support for the first generation Apple Watch, which saw the light back there by 2015, so that if you bought it when it was presented - the worst case - you will have Guarantee until April 2018. The cause? A more than likely negligence regarding Apple's manufacturing and / or quality department .

But that's right, as you are reading: if you own a first-generation Apple Watch with the black back cover , Apple or a service authorized by the mark of the bite apple could repair it without cost. Or that is what MacRumors asserts, which has been done with an internal circular regarding policies of reparation of those of Cupertino.

Apple has determined that under certain conditions, some Apple Watch devices may have a certain type of manufacturing failure that would cause the back cover to separate from the rest of the clock , something that has been evidenced by complaints from various users on the internet, such as See the picture below. In these cases, the repair is free and your warranty will go up to three years .

This measure applies from last year and is valid for Sport, Edition and luxury Hermès models , and whether you had the standard warranty or had hired AppleCare. So it is your case, do not hesitate to contact Apple, either in a physical store, authorized vendor or by phone. Of course, before starting the repair for free, Apple will verify if you fall within this exception.

Although for the time being this exceptional measure is restricted to first-generation Apple Watch with black casing, who knows what might happen. And is that if this new policy comes after complaints from various users on social networks like Reddit, if there were other such apparent future complaints, we believe that Apple would act again . For things like these, Apple is one of the most favorite brands of consumers. So you know, the one who does not cry, does not breast.

What is the modus operandi of the defective Apple Watch? Apparently, with continued use to many users it has happened that when removing their smartwatch from the magnetic load carrier, the back cover was stuck in the dock. After trying to mount it yourself, the gadget starts to work worse and take erratic measures.

If on the contrary you own an Apple Watch 2, you can rest easy, since apparently Apple would have used a stronger method of union between the parts of the smartwatch.
