Discover model identifier along with the serial ad part number of your device

It is possible to detect the serial number along with the detailed information about MacBook Air in several places:

  • In macOS;
  • On the device’s surface;
  • On laptop’s packaging, receipt, and invoice.

Use ‘About This Mac’ feature in macOS

Those who have installed macOS Sierra or macOS High Sierra may detect Mac’s serial number along with the rest of the data regarding the model in a special feature. It is known as About This Mac.

Select Apple menu and go to About This Mac. The model will appear in the corresponding window. For instance, it may be MacBook Air (11-inch, Early 2014). One more thing to view is the particular serial and part number. In our example, it can be one of these options only: MD760xx/B and MD761xx/B. Apply the serial number to discover technical specifications for your MacBook Air. It will also allow checking the support and service features.

Do not forget to check the model identifier. In the example, it would be MacBookAir6,1. This element will provide the user with more information as well. Choose System Report in the About This Mac menu. Discover Model Identifier. It is located on the Hardware Overview tab. With the help of model identifier, a user can locate his Mac below.

Check out the exterior of your MacBook Air

Shut down MacBook Air. Carefully turn it over to find the serial number. It will appear on the underside of Mac, next to the regulatory markings.

Check the original MacBook Air packaging/receipt

Experts recommend leaving MacBookAir packaging for a good reason. Except for some obvious things like proving that you are the owner, it is possible to notice the serial number of the device over there. It appears on a barcode label on the box.

In addition, a user can check the Apple part number (in the example above, there are just two of them available for that model). Compare the results t those in the list below to recognize what your specific model of MacBook Air is. If you wonder, the “xx” symbols before the slash are the variables different depending on the country or another populated area.

Do you save all receipts and invoices? You are doing everything right if you do as they contain a lot of helpful information and work when you need to repair a device based on the warranty. In a receipt, a user can discover the serial/part number as well as model number. Do not forget to check the configuration details on a receipt or invoice too!
