Apple announced on late Friday a new service program for Apple Watch Series 6 owners experiencing a blank screen issue.

According to the service program page (via 9to5Mac), the company says it has “determined that the screen on a very small percentage of 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 devices may go blank permanently. Affected devices were manufactured between April 2021 to September 2021.”

Apple says those that have experienced this issue on their Apple Watch Series 6 can enter in their serial to see if it’s eligible for free repair, either at an Apple Store or authorized service provider.

“The program covers eligible Apple Watch Series 6 for two years after the first retail sale of the unit,” says Apple.
