Important safety information for your Mac
WARNING: Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock, or other injuries, or damage to your Mac mini or other property. Read all safety information below before using your Mac mini.
Handling. Set up your Mac mini on a hard, stable work surface that allows for adequate air circulation under and around the computer. Never push objects into the ventilation openings. Your Mac mini can be damaged if dropped, burned, punctured, or crushed, or if it comes in contact with liquids, oils, and lotions.
Liquid exposure. Keep your Mac mini away from sources of liquid, such as drinks, oils, lotions, washbasins, bathtubs, shower stalls, and so on. Protect your Mac mini from dampness, humidity, or wet weather, such as rain, snow, and fog.
Power. The only way to turn off power completely is to unplug the power cord. Make sure at least one end of the power cord is within easy reach so that you can unplug your Mac mini when you need to. Unplug the power cord (by pulling the plug, not the cord) and disconnect all cables if any of the following conditions exists:
The power cord or plug becomes frayed or otherwise damaged.
You spill something into the case.
Your Mac mini is exposed to rain or excess moisture.
Your Mac mini has been dropped, or the case has been damaged.
You suspect that your Mac mini needs service or repair.
You want to clean the case (use only the recommended procedure, described later in this document).
Voltage: 100 to 240 V AC
Current: 2 A, maximum
Frequency: 50 to 60 Hz
Hearing loss. Listening to sound at high volumes may damage your hearing. Background noise, as well as continued exposure to high volume levels, can make sounds seem quieter than they actually are. Use only compatible earbuds, headphones, or earpieces with your Mac mini. Turn on the audio and check the volume before inserting anything into your ear. See Sound and Hearing.
WARNING: To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long periods.
Repairing. Your Mac mini doesn’t have any user-serviceable parts. Do not open or disassemble Mac mini or attempt to repair it or replace any components. Disassembling your Mac mini may damage it or may cause injury to you. If your Mac mini needs service, is damaged, malfunctions, or comes in contact with liquid, contact Apple or an Apple-authorized repair center, such as an Apple Authorized Service Provider. If you attempt to open your Mac mini, you risk damaging your computer, and such damage isn’t covered by the limited warranty on your Mac mini.
Navigation. Maps, directions, and location-based apps depend on data services. These data services are subject to change and may not be available in all areas, resulting in maps, directions, or location-based information that may be unavailable, inaccurate, or incomplete. Compare the location-based information provided to your surroundings and defer to posted signs to resolve any discrepancies. Do not use these services while performing activities that require your full attention. Always comply with posted signs and the applicable laws and regulations in the areas where you are using navigation, and always use common sense.
Medical device interference. Mac mini contains components and radios that emit electromagnetic fields. These electromagnetic fields may interfere with medical devices, such as pacemakers and defibrillators. Consult your physician and medical device manufacturer for information specific to your medical device and whether you need to maintain a safe distance of separation between your medical device and Mac mini. If you suspect Mac mini is interfering with your medical device, stop using Mac mini.
Medical conditions. If you have a medical condition that you believe could be affected by using Mac mini (for example, seizures, blackouts, eyestrain, or headaches), consult with your physician prior to using Mac mini.
Repetitive motion. When you perform repetitive activities such as typing or playing games on Mac mini, you may experience discomfort in your hands, arms, wrists, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. If you experience discomfort, stop using Mac mini and consult a physician.
High-consequence activities. Mac mini is not intended for use where the failure of the computer could lead to death, personal injury, or severe environmental damage.
Explosive and other atmospheric conditions. Using Mac mini in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere may be hazardous—particularly in areas where the air contains high levels of flammable chemicals, vapors, or particles such as grain, dust, or metal powders. Exposing Mac mini to environments having high concentrations of industrial chemicals, including near evaporating liquified gasses such as helium, may damage or impair Mac mini functionality.
