The US-based tech giant Apple On Monday announced that it has launched a repair program for the Apple Watch Series 6 to address an issue that can cause a small percentage of the devices to exhibit a permanently blank screen.
According to a report from macrumors, devices that have been impacted by this issue will be repaired free of charge by Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. The program covers eligible Apple Watch Series 6 models for two years after the first retail sale of the unit.
This problem impacts the 40mm Apple Watch Series 6, and affected devices were manufactured between April 2021 and September 2021.
