Request information via serial number check
There are several websites and apps that make it possible to look up the serial number of your device. Below we list three popular options:
Via the Dutch website chipmunk, it is possible to look up the serial number of your Apple devices. Enter the number and click on the ‘Show information’ button and the website will start right away.
The number is looked up in the database and a little later you will see additional information such as the product, model name, type, when it was manufactured, from which year it came, and typical characteristics for this product. The website has a limit of 10 serial number checks per month per IP address. Do you want more? Then you can create a free account.
Like Chipmunk, this website can look up the serial number of your devices and additional information. Not only can you do this for Apple products, but also for other brands including Samsung and LG.
Do you know which device you have, and would you like to request more information about it? Then you can also use the free MacTracker application for Mac. Here you can search the database of all Apple devices and request detailed information. Unfortunately, you cannot search by serial number, but if you know which model it is, it is worth looking at the information.
