Apple today announced a free screen replacement program for the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 models with a broken screen. The program is offered to aluminum models only to correct a crack that says it appears in very rare circumstances and forms along the rounded edge of the screen. Apple says the crack can start on one side of the screen and continue around the display.

Many of the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 owners whose device suffered a broken screen claim that there was no trauma that caused the damage. Apple has not announced what caused these screens to break. In 2017, he added two years to the one-year warranty for the Apple Watch Series 1 after some of those devices suffered from a swollen battery syndrome. Last year, Apple said it would replace the swollen batteries in the Apple Watch Series 2 free of charge. A lawsuit initiated earlier this year states that all Apple Watch models, including the current Series 4 watch, contain a defect that causes the battery to swell. This, according to the plaintiffs, causes the screen to break, leading users to suffer cuts and burns.
