Apple is saying goodbye to "Time Travel" Pixabay

Running low on inventory for the older model, Apple has informed its retail staff to substitute some Apple Watch Series 3 repairs with the Series 4 globally, the media reported.

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.


As of now, Apple has not provided any details about how long would the Series 3 constraints and Series 4 upgrades scheme last.

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.

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.

In January, the company announced that some first-generation Apple Watches and Apple Watch Series 1 could qualify for Series 2 replacements, due to supply constraints on repair parts for the older models.

Earlier this month, Apple confirmed that repairs of certain Apple Watch Series 2 models will be fulfilled with equivalent Series 3 models due to temporary shortages of unspecified Series 2 parts, the report added. (IANS)

NASA has launched the 'Deep Space Food Challenge'.

NASA will pay up to $1 million to people who can come up with innovative and sustainable food production ideas to feed astronauts in space, as the US space agency prepares to send astronauts further into the cosmos than ever before. Giving future explorers the technology to produce nutritious, tasty, and satisfying meals on long-duration space missions will give them the energy required to uncover the great unknown. In coordination with the Canadian Space Agency, NASA has launched the 'Deep Space Food Challenge' that calls on teams to design, build, and demonstrate prototypes of food production technologies that provide tangible nutritional products -- or food.

People with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

People suffering from depression are more likely to believe vaccine-related misinformation, according to a new study. The study found that people with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

Those who believed the statements to be true were half as likely to be vaccinated, the study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, indicated. 'It is clear the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the mental health of Americans, especially young people," said researcher Katherine Ognyanova from Rutgers University, the US.

It is estimated that millions of pieces of space debris orbit around Earth.

The space economy is on track to be valued at a trillion dollars by the end of 2030, but assets such as navigation, weather and communication satellites that serve our society daily are threatened by space debris, an Indian-American professor has stressed. According to NASA, it is estimated that millions of pieces of space debris orbit around Earth. A major portion of these objects as well as active satellites reside in the low-Earth orbit region, at altitudes between 200 km and 1,000 km. In November last year, Russia destroyed one of its own satellites with a ground-based missile, creating thousands of pieces of debris that passed through the International Space Station (ISS).
