Find The Level Of Cover For Your Mac


Making sure your Mac or other Apple product is top notch is a must. You have spent a lot of money and you want to make sure the warranty is up to scratch. Since I have a poor memory I can never remember when my warranty will run out. Apple have provided a cool webpage which you can use to check the level of your Apple Care. In this post I will show you how to check it, plus a couple of tips and tricks.

The first place to check out is the Online Service Assistance. Notice the first option is to add you serial number. The quickest way of finding you serial number is to run the following in Terminal.

ioreg -l | grep IOPlatformSerialNumber | awk '{ print $4 }'

This will display your serial number in quotes. Copy this alphanumeric number into the text box an hit ok.
