Apple launches free service for Watch Series 6 Blank Screen Issue


Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 6 blank screen service program after the company determined that a very small percentage of 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 screens could become permanently empty. The affected portable items were manufactured between April 2021 and September 2021. Users experiencing this issue have the option to check the serial number of their smartwatch on the official website. If your smartwatch qualifies, you can get free access to an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) service. Separately, it was reported late last month that the fast charging of the Apple Watch Series 7 is breaking as the watchOS 8.5 update.

Apple Watch Series 6 Blank Screen Issue Service Program was announced by the Cupertino, California-based company after it detected a manufacturing defect with its Series 6 smartwatches. According to the company, the screens of a small percentage of the 40 mm Apple Watch Series 6 may be permanently empty. The affected portable items are from the groups manufactured between April 2021 and September 2021.

The technology giant has made it clear that only the qualifying smartwatches will receive the free service of the AASP. The company said that the repair of the qualifying portable items may be limited to the original country or region of purchase. Users can check the suitability of their smartwatch for the Apple Watch Series 6 service program by entering the serial number on Apple’s official website.

It was reported last month that the watchOS 8.5 update released for the Apple Watch in March has broken fast charging support. The update brought the ability to authorize Apple TV purchases and subscriptions directly from the users’ wrist. Users can also use audio tips in Fitness + with audio commentary of visually demonstrated movements during workouts after the update. But the reports pointed to Apple Watch Series 7 users confirming that the watchOS 8.5 apparently broke support for fast charging – a feature that was exclusive to the Apple Watch Series 7.
