Check Your Mac Warranty: In macOS Sonoma 14.1 and later versions, accessing current information regarding your Mac’s warranty or AppleCare plan, along with the warranty status of connected AirPods and/or Beats headphones, is a straightforward process. This enables you to verify coverage, understand the included repair and support services, and retrieve details like the agreement number, proof of purchase, and expiry date.
To get information on your Mac’s warranty status and/or AppleCare+ plan, first make sure your Mac’s software is updated to macOS Sonoma 14.1 or later (System Settings ➝ General ➝ Software Update) then follow these steps:
- Click the Apple symbol () in the menu bar and select System Settings….
- Select General in the side column
- Select Coverage.
- Click the option under “This Device” to see your Mac warranty information, or click the options under “More Devices” for selected Bluetooth-paired devices.
Apple provides a minimum one-year limited warranty for all hardware, complemented by up to 90 days of technical support. This coverage automatically addresses manufacturing defects within the specified period, and the remaining time under Apple’s Limited Warranty is clearly displayed for your Mac.
For users with AppleCare+ for Mac, the plan offers unlimited incidents of accidental damage protection annually, subject to a service fee.

The duration of your AppleCare+ plan is visible on the left side of the window.

In the United States, Apple allows the extension of AppleCare+ coverage for Macs indefinitely. After the initial three-year coverage period, users can opt for additional coverage that automatically renews annually until canceled, provided it is purchased within 30 days of the original coverage’s end date.
Previously, extending AppleCare+ coverage for a Mac beyond the initial three years was not possible. It’s important to note that outside the United States, AppleCare+ coverage for Macs is limited to three years.
