Apple offers a free Watch Series 6 Black Screen-Free Repair Programme! According to reports, some 40mm Apple Watch devices manufactured between April 2021 and September 2021 may be affected by a problem that permanently causes the screen to go blank.
While the exact cause of the issue is unknown, it appears to be related to a component failure. Apple will provide a free repair if you have an Apple Watch in this manufacturing range and experience this problem.
You can check your eligibility for a free repair at the Apple website by putting the serial number. An authorized Apple Service Provider will repair your device’s display for free if you are eligible.
