Does a MacBook Pro have an IMEI number?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

MacBook Pro does not have an IMEI number. IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) numbers are unique identifiers that are assigned to mobile devices such as smartphones. Since MacBook Pro is not a mobile device, it does not have an IMEI number.

However, MacBook Pro does have a unique identifier called the serial number. The serial number is a combination of letters and numbers that is used to identify a specific device. It is typically located on the bottom of the MacBook Pro or can be found in the “About This Mac” section in the Apple menu.

To find the serial number of your MacBook Pro, you can follow these steps:

1. Click on the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen.
2. Select “About This Mac” from the dropdown menu.
3. In the window that appears, you will see information about your MacBook Pro, including the serial number.

Alternatively, you can find the serial number on the original packaging or receipt from when you purchased the MacBook Pro. The serial number is usually printed on a label or sticker on the packaging.

Having the serial number of your MacBook Pro can be helpful in various situations. For example, if you need to contact Apple support for technical assistance or warranty-related queries, they may ask for the serial number to identify your specific device.

It’s important to note that the serial number is different from the model number or configuration of your MacBook Pro. The model number refers to the specific model and specifications of your device, while the serial number is unique to each individual MacBook Pro.

MacBook Pro does not have an IMEI number but has a unique serial number instead. You can find the serial number by checking the “About This Mac” section or referring to the original packaging or receipt.
