Apple products are known for their durability, but even the best devices can experience issues. Whether you’re thinking about making a claim or just curious about your device’s coverage, this article will show you how to quickly and easily check the warranty coverage status of your Apple devices.
Whether you have an iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, AirPods, HomePod, Apple TV, Apple Pencil, or any other Apple device, we’ve got you covered using these official methods.

Other methods to check the remaining warranty of any Apple device
Besides the above steps, you can use the following methods to know how much warranty is left for your Apple Pencil, Apple TV, and any other Apple device.
Use Apple’s Check Coverage website

Note: Even though Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, Magic Keyboard, and such peripherals have a serial number, entering them on Apple’s CheckCoverage website may show an error saying, “We’re sorry, we’re unable to check coverage for this serial number. Please check your information and try again. For help with Apple accessories, please contact Apple Support.” In these situations, follow the last method mentioned at the end of this article.
Use the Apple Support app
- Download the official Apple Support app.

- Select your iPhone, iPad, Watch, AirPods, Mac, HomePod, or another device from the My Devices section. You can also tap My Devices to see a list.
- Tap Device Details below an Apple product of yours.
- You will see Limited Warranty or Coverage Expired. Tap one for more info about your repairs, service, chat and phone support, hardware coverage, or AppleCare+ coverage availability.
Use Apple’s My Support page

- Select your iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods, Apple Watch, HomePod, or another device under the My Devices heading.

Calculate remaining warranty using the purchase or delivery date
As mentioned at the beginning of this post, every Apple product has a limited one-year warranty (and two years in some countries). Now, if you can’t get the remaining warranty status of an Apple device such as a Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, Magic Keyboard, etc., simply follow these steps:
- Find the original invoice that shows the purchase date.
- Use today’s date and the purchase date to calculate the remaining warranty. For a precise remaining warranty status, use the date of delivery or pick up. For example, my HomePod was delivered (and set up by me) on 29th September 2022. So, my warranty is active until 28th September 2023.
