The Apple serial number decoder

Decode/check Apple serial numbers on any Apple device

Apple serial numbers are normally printed on the back or bottom of the device, a few other places they can be found are :- There are a few Apple serial number formats and this tool supports them all from the 80s to current day. Classic Mac serial number decoding is a work in progress but should return a date at least.

Apple serial numbers are 10 to 15 characters long (letters and numbers) and don't contain any spaces, dots, hyphens or slashes. If yours has a slash or is short (perhaps starting with an A) that is the Apple model number and you should use my Apple model number decoder instead. For details of how this tool works and how it differs from other Apple tools see the how it works page. For modern (post-2010) 12 character serial numbers you can replace digits 6, 7 and 8 with an x (or any letter) to avoid sending your unique serial number. They are the only characters in the serial number that are unique to your item but do not affect decoding. Unfortunately due to abuse direct linking to results is no longer allowed.
