Resources, service, and support for your Mac
You can find more information about your iMac in System Report, Apple Diagnostics, and through online resources.
System Report. To get information about your iMac, use System Report. It shows you what hardware and software is installed, the serial number and operating system version, how much memory is installed, and more. To open System Report, choose Apple menu > About This Mac, then click System Report.
Apple Diagnostics. You can use Apple Diagnostics to help determine if there’s a problem with one of the computer’s components, such as the memory or processor. Apple Diagnostics helps to identify the potential source of a hardware issue and provides first steps to try and resolve it. Apple Diagnostics will also help you get in touch with AppleCare Support if you need more help.
Before using Apple Diagnostics, disconnect any external devices, such as a hard disk or external display. Be sure the iMac is connected to the Internet.
To start Apple Diagnostics on a 24-inch iMac with Apple M1 chip, restart the computer, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to open Startup Options, then hold Command-D to enter diagnostics mode. To start Apple Diagnostics on other iMac models, restart the computer, then hold down the D key as it starts up.
If prompted, select the language for your location. Press the Return key or click the right arrow button. The basic Apple Diagnostics test takes a few minutes to complete. If an issue is found, a description of the issue appears with additional instructions. Make a note of any reference codes before you exit Apple Diagnostics, in case you need to contact AppleCare Support.
Online resources. For online service and support information, go to Welcome to Apple Support.
