If your Apple device is still within its original AppleCare warranty term or is covered by AppleCare+, verifying that it is still covered might be the first step towards obtaining a repair for your Apple device. Here’s how to determine what is and isn’t covered by your insurance policy.
After years of experience, many individuals have discovered that getting Apple products fixed outside of the AppleCare program may be a time-consuming and expensive process, particularly considering the present state of laptop repairability. Nothing is cheap when it comes to bonding or soldering components to a logic board, so you’ll undoubtedly be expecting that Apple would cover the cost of your repair. If this is not the case, things might get very expensive very quickly.
Fortunately, verifying AppleCare coverage is a straightforward process, and you can do it from a single location for all of your devices.
Update: Warranty information may now be found by going to Settings > General > About in the app. It was included in iOS 12.2, which was published on March 25, 2019, and is now available. If you do not have AppleCare, it will inform you of the current state of the limited warranty on your iPhone or iPad.
How to Check AppleCare Status for a Single Device
If you wish to verify AppleCare coverage for a single device, there are a handful of different options available to you. One requires that you have the serial number of the device on hand, while the other may be completed from any computer equipped with a web browser and an Internet connection. The other option entails the download of an iPhone or iPad application.
- If you know the serial number of the device in question, you may go to checkcoverage.apple.com and input the number into the appropriate box there. You’ll also be required to provide a security code in order to establish that you’re a real person.
- Following completion, click the “Continue” option to be presented with information about your device, including whether or not it is covered by AppleCare or AppleCare+ coverage.
How to Check the AppleCare Status for All Your Devices
Download the “Apple Support” app from the App Store and sign in with your Apple ID if you like to view all of your devices in one spot without having to input any serial numbers. Once you’ve logged in, go to the top of the page and hit your account symbol.
- Once the screen has loaded, tap “Check Coverage.”
You’ll be presented with a screen that lists every device linked with your Apple ID, along with a notation indicating whether or not the device is now protected by AppleCare or AppleCare+. It is possible to touch a gadget in order to obtain extra information about it.
