Apple is really getting into its replacement programs right now and the Apple Watch is the latest to join the fun. The company has launched a new screen replacement program for the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 wearables.

As many people have noticed, those two watches have been known to suffer from cracked screens on the aluminum models. The cracks start on one edge of the screen and then work their way around the circumference.

Anyone with an impacted Apple Watch can now have their screen replaced free of charge by either Apple itself or one of its Apple Authorized Providers. If that’s you, we’d suggest contacting Apple or calling into an Apple Store.

Apple has been launching all kinds of warranty extensions and return programs on various things of late. Those usually relate to the MacBook Pro in some way, but this time it’s the Apple Watch that gets some love. Of course, we’re sure those with failing screens would rather they just didn’t crack in the first place.

Apple says that the replacement program covers eligible Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 watches in aluminum. They’ll be covered for three years from the first retail sale of the unit or one year from the start of this new program. Whichever of those two is the longest.

Apple is expected to announce its latest Apple Watch in the next few weeks with the Apple Watch Series 5 set to be the best Apple wearable yet.
