If you’ve got the Apple Watch Series 3 and it’s having some issues which needs repairing then you’re mighty lucky. How’s that you ask?
Media reports suggest that Apple has informed its retail staff to substitute some Apple Watch Series 3 repairs with the Series 4 globally. We’re not sure if this is happening in India but definitely worth checking out.
The company announced the change in an internal memo that was delivered to Apple Store repair staff and the iPhone maker's Authorized Service Providers around the world, 9To5Mac reported on Monday.
The new repair and replacement upgrade for the Apple Watch is the latest of several instances of the company substituting Apple Watch repairs with newer models.
As of now, Apple has not provided any details about how long would the Series 3 constraints and Series 4 upgrades scheme last.
The iPhone-maker released its Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular connectivity built in 2017. The 38mm variant of the watch currently costs Rs 28,900, while the 42mm GPS variant is priced at Rs 31,900 in India.
Launched last October, the price of Apple Watch Series 4 GPS is Rs 40,900 for the 40mm variant and Rs 43,900 for the 44mm version.
"As usual, it's not guaranteed that all locations will acknowledge existence of this internal policy, especially given that there is no definitive end date, so your mileage may vary," the report said.
Having said that, this isn’t first instance when Apple is offering free upgrades instead of repairing devices. Earlier this year, the Cupertino-based giant offered to replace the first generation Apple Watch with Watch Series 2, owing to unavailability of parts for the first model.
