Apple products are covered with official warranty for a certain period of time, depending on what device you are purchasing. Usually, iPhones come with one year of official warranty for hardware, and 90 days of complimentary service just in case you find difficulties setting up your new iPhone and get started into using it. The Apple warranty check can be processed on the official website, this option has been kept so that the iPhone users can get a hold of their warranty status without having to go through the memos.
Also, if someone wants to buy a pre-owned or refurbished iPhone, they could have an idea the actual purchase date and whether the warranty had been claimed earlier. In overall judgment, the warranty checking tool on Apple’s website is very much useful.
Apple Warranty Check for iPhone & other Apple Devices
If you have purchased any Apple device in recent times, you can track all of their warranty statuses. All the devices are pasted with a serial number, it’s a unique identifier and will not have any match with some other Apple device. Find the imei number to use the warranty checking tool on the Apple website.
Once the serial number is handy, launch Apple’s Service & Support Coverage Check website. That’s what Apple officially call the warranty checker on the official Apple website. Any Apple product – iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, Apple TV etc. everything has the unique identifier pasted on a sticker on the product’s body which could be used to check the warranty status of the device.
However, once you click on the ‘continue’ button after filling the empty box up, a new screen would appear on screen. Four information are usually shown on this screen, followed by the device name, model and type on top. For example, if your device is a iPhone 6S Plus, the top section would show iPhone 6S Plus and the IMEI number underneath this title.
The section that follows contains information like – whether the device is registered with Apple’s website, whether the telephone support provided for the customers is still alive for the specific product, the status of the repair and service coverage and if an AppleCare Protection Plan had been purchased for the device, and the status of AppleCare Protection Plan if one exists.
If the telephone support expires, customers still get to contact Apple Support by clicking the exact button located at the right. To make an appointment for repairs, the exact same location underneath the previous button holds the ‘Set Up a Repair’ button. To extend AppleCare Protection plan, user could just click on the ‘Extend Coverage’ button (available for some devices).
