Whether you want to trade in your MacBook for a new model or check compatibility with other products, you'll need to find out what model MacBook you own.
Since the MacBook Air, Pro and "regular" MacBook names don't change when they're updated, Apple uses the year -- and time of year -- a MacBook is released as the model. It looks something like "MacBook Air (13-inch, mid-2014)."
Here's how to find your MacBook's model:
- On your MacBook, go to the Apple menu (upper-left corner) > About this Mac.
- In the window that pops up, you'll see a serial number. Highlight it and copy it.
- Head to Apple's Check Coverage page and paste the serial number. Hit Continue, and you'll see the model, along with details about what support services are still covered.
