The company has extended its limited warranty for those defects.
The lawsuit seeks damages of $5M.
Apple is facing a class-action lawsuit that alleges that every Apple Watch it has ever produced has a big problem. Kolin Tang, who is representing Sciacca in this case, did not respond to a request for comment.
Apple did not immediately respond to a Fortune request for comment. Series 3 Apple Watches have a confirmed issue with some units showing visible stripe markings on the display. On or around March 9, 2018, Sciacca's Watch screen became detached from the body after he removed the watch from its charger, according to the lawsuit.

In order for the conversion to be complete, the rials had to be converted to US dollars, which would then be converted into euros. Republicans have pointed to the revelation as proof that the Obama administration was "desperate" for the Iran deal.
Apple now offers plenty of new Apple Watches to choose from, although no new hardware refresh was announced during the WWDC opening keynote. Because the employees determined Sciacca's Watch was not covered under Apple's Limited Warranty, they quoted him $249 to fix his Watch. "Sciacca's Watch was in like-new condition, with no scratches on the screen or damage to the body".
Apple's legal team has been busy for the last few weeks. The lawsuit cites 16 comments listed in Apple's Communities forum sharing the owners' experiences of their Apple Watch screen falling out, saying the internet is "replete" with similar instances. But then, in April this year, it expanded that additional coverage to include second-generation watches as well. "Under any option, consumers must either pay more for the continued use of an already expensive Watch or be deprived of its use entirely". Eventually, Apple was forced to extend the warranties on Series 0 and Series 2 models due to excessive battery swelling.
This action is brought to remedy violations of state consumer protection statutes in connection with Apple's misconduct, including its conscious effort to hide material facts concerning the Defect during the distribution, marketing, sale and advertisement of the Watches, as well the consumer and warranty services performed with respect to the Watches.
Apple Watches are displayed during a launch event in Cupertino, California, U.S. September 12, 2017. The Series 2 and Series 3 have also had minor problems with their batteries and screens, respectively. Some users reported the back of their devices had come off; others reported the screen popping off.
