Find it on a Web Portal

On Your Device

If you don’t want to fiddle with a web browser, you can find pertinent information right on your iPhone or iPad. Open the “Settings” app on your phone or tablet and then click on “General” and finally “About.” This will display a number of data points about your device, including specific AppleCare, warranty, and insurance information.

F.A.Q.

The time remaining on your AppleCare plan will be visible whenever you successfully access your device’s insurance and warranty information.


How am I supposed to survive without my device while Apple is repairing it?

Apple tends to resolve repair issues quickly, but if you are really in a time crunch we would recommend paying extra for the company’s Express Replacement Service.
