This article explains how you can check your Apple product warranty status for Apple devices including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, AirPods, and Apple HomePod.

Having an issue with your Apple device, whether a broken screen or a hardware malfunction, isn’t fun. What’s even less fun is paying hundreds of dollars to fix it.

Thankfully, Apple offers different types of warranties on new devices or refurbished Apple hardware. If you’re curious about what each type and how to check your warranty status, you’ve come to the right place.

Apple product warranties

Apple offers two types of warranties: a standard warranty and AppleCare .

Standard Apple warranty

What it gets you:

If you have a new or refurbished iPhone, Mac, or Airpods you are automatically covered under the standard warranty.

  • It covers one year of hardware repairs (at a low or no cost) and includes 90 days of telephone technical support from an Apple Genius.

What it does not cover:

  • The iPhone standard warranty does not cover battery-related issues, normal wear and tear (like scratches and dents from dropping your phone or repeatedly placing it on rough surfaces), or if your iPhone is stolen.

  • Defects from accidents (dropping your iPhone in water, breaking your screen) or another product (like a case) are not covered.

  • If you jailbreak your iPhone or get it repaired by someone who isn’t an Apple-authorized provider, your warranty is void.

  • This warranty does not apply to used Apple products.

AppleCare extended warranty

More benefits are available under the AppleCare extended warranty. You extend (and upgrade) your protection if you purchase AppleCare or the AppleCare Protection Plan. The pricing for this additional coverage differs. For example, Apple’s extended warranty service costs $199 for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max and $149 for the iPhone 15, iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 offering two-year coverage including accidental damage. You can buy this when you buy your device or within the 60 days of your purchase.
