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.

The low cost successor to iPhone SE is getting into mass production next month and Apple could release it in March.

Apple is reportedly ready to return to the low-cost phone market after an absence of four years, CNET reported on Tuesday.

The handset — believed to be comparable in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 from 2017 — would be Apple’s first low-cost smartphone since 2016’s $399 iPhone SE.

It is pertinent to note that the iPhone SE was one of company’s most successful mobile devices in the past half-decade because of a combination of reasons.

Price was a factor but it also offered long-time iPhone fans a reprieve from all the design changes that Apple was doing.
