A MacBook computer includes a one-year limited warranty from the date of purchase. This warranty includes 90 days of telephone technical support and one year of service coverage. By purchasing the additional AppleCare Protection plan, both telephone support and service coverage extend for three years past the date of purchase. You can purchase AppleCare any time while the MacBook one-year limited warranty is still in effect, according to the Apple website.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to the “Apple” menu in the upper left corner of the screen of your MacBook. Select “About This Mac.” Click the “More Info” button.

  2. 2

    Drag your cursor over the text following “Serial Number.” Go to the “Edit” menu and select “Copy.”

  3. 3

    Go to the Apple “Service and Repair” web page (see Resources). Enter your serial number in the text box by going to the "Edit" menu and selecting "Paste." Choose the appropriate country in the drop-down menu. Press the “Continue” button. Your MacBook model, serial number and estimated coverage will appear on the next screen.

  4. 4

    Click “See full coverage details.” The next screen will indicate if your telephone technical support and repairs and service coverage are active or inactive. If they are active, the expiration date will also appear. The screen will indicate if you are covered by the limited warranty or AppleCare. Use the links on the screen to learn more about your coverage, if desired.
