An internal document to Apple asks employees to replace the Apple Watch Series 3 broken down against Series 4.

The Cupertino company would therefore lack parts for its connected watches. In early May, a document sent to Apple Store and repairers Apple agreed already to exchange models Apple Watch Series 2 deficient (only 38 millimeters) by Series 3.

The only indication given to users of the products concerned: the third version of the connected watch requires a iPhone compatible with watchOS 4 minimum. This is not the case for models 5 and 5c. Same goes now for Series 3 broken down, which it will be possible to swap against a more recent version, the Serie 4.

The state of stocks of spare parts for the apple brand raises questions. It would not only concern the United States, but the whole world. Apple has still not commented on the duration of this commercial policy.
