Apple Watch

Apple may have imposed high-quality standards with its devices but that doesn’t mean it’ll last a lifetime. Just recently, the Apple Watch was hit by swelling batteries which after regularly using them, its display would unexpectedly pop off from the Watch’s frame. This caused a stir to Apple Watch users as they haven’t expected this to happen knowing how rigorous Apple’s quality control.

Though it isn’t clear just how widespread the problem is but the Cupertino giant promptly acknowledge the problem and extended the warranties for all Apple Watches an additional year on top of its regular 1 year warranty.

Users affected by the problem posted their experiences on Reddit, on Apple’s official Support Forum and Twitter and just so you have an idea of what it looks like if you haven’t yet affected, well then, here it is:

Apple already notified all of its official Service Centers through an internal memo regarding the extended warranty service for the Apple Watch. Earlier, Apple already extended the warranty policy for the fourth generation iPad’s just in case something goes wrong with the device.

Understandably, the extent of the problem with the Apple Watch seems to be limited and random but Apple is already investigating regarding the matter to determine just how widespread the problem is. As a precautionary measures, Apple just have to do what’s best for Apple users, simply because that’s part of their commitment and it’s one of the best customer support you can get for an Apple product.
