When you purchase a new iPhone, iPad or Mac, your device comes with a limited warranty that covers eligible hardware repairs for one year, and provides free technical support by phone for 90 days.
But you may not remember the exact date when you purchased your Apple device, and whether or not it’s still under warranty.
To help you with this, Apple has a painless solution. Here’s how you can find out in just a few steps.
The easiest way to check this is through Apple itself. All you need is the serial number of your iPhone, iPad or MacBook. On the iPhone and iPad you will find this number in the Settings > General > About. On a MacBook, go to ‘About this Mac’, after which the serial number will be in the overview menu.
Have you noted the serial number? Then follow the steps below to check whether your iPad, Mac or iPhone is still under warranty:
Open your browser and go to Apple’s warrant tracker page.
Enter the serial number of your Apple product
And enter the secret code, or renew the code if the current string is not readable
This page will tell you what kind of Apple product you have, along with related warranty information. The page consists of three parts. First, it indicates whether your iPhone, iPad or other Apple product has a valid purchase date. This allows Apple employees to quickly recognize your device and help where necessary.
You can also see in this screen whether you are still entitled to telephone support. With each new product purchased, you have a free period of time during which you can call Apple customer service for technical support at no charge.
Finally, this screen shows when you have a warranty on your iPhone, iPad, Mac or another Apple product. Using the above method, you can also find out how old your iPhone or Apple product is. Simply subtract one year from the expiration date and you will arrive at the date the product was sold.
