Find the serial number for your Apple TV

You might need the serial number when you register your Apple TV or request support.

Check the About screen for the serial number

To see the serial number for your Apple TV, go Settings > General > About. You can also see the serial number for your Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote* by going to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Remote.  

If you still haven't found the number that you need, check your device or box.

Check the bottom of your Apple TV for the reflective serial number

Since the serial number on the bottom of your device is reflective, use a light to read the number. 

Find the serial number with your Apple ID

On your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 10.3 or later that's signed in with your Apple ID, go to Settings > [Your name]. Then Scroll down and tap your Apple TV to see the serial number.

If you don’t have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that you use with your Apple TV, you can go to your Apple ID account page on your computer to find the serial number for your Apple TV. Just go to appleid.apple.com and sign in with the Apple ID that you use on the Apple TV. Then scroll down to the section called Devices, and select your Apple TV.

Check the box for the serial number

If you have your device's original box, you can see the serial number on the barcode.
