You may want to find the model name or serial number of your Mac when checking warranty cover, searching for specifications, creating a home inventory, selling, giving away or trading in your Mac, or finding out whether it is compatible with the latest Mac operating system or other software or hardware.
Use About This Mac
From the Apple menu in the corner of your screen, choose About This Mac. You should see an overview of your Mac, including its model name and serial number.
If you see a window like this, double-click the version number beneath “OS X” to display the serial number:
Use System Information
The System Information app also displays your Mac model and serial number. Open the app, then select Hardware on the left-hand side of the System Information window. The model name and serial number appear on the right:
- Look on the outside of your Mac, or check the original packaging, receipt or invoice as described on the product-ID page for MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, MacBook, iMac, Mac mini or Mac Pro.
- Sign in to appleid.apple.com, then look for your Mac in the Devices section. If you see your Mac there, click its name to see the model name and serial number.
- If you still need help, contact an Apple Store or Apple Authorised Service Provider.
