Every iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac comes with a one-year warranty against manufacturing defects and hardware failures. If you choose, you can also extend that warranty for additional years with AppleCare. Regardless of which warranty you have, you can easily find out whether or not your Apple products are currently covered.

Checking your AppleCare status for all your Apple devices requires you to know the serial number of the device — the one exception being your best iPhone. It's pretty easy to find the serial number of any Apple device, and we will run you through how to do it for each Apple device.
