I'm just trying to insure my machine ...
Thanks very much
There is a way to do it using the serial number, but I can't remember what that is.
This little program should provide the info you need.
Great find - that is a useful app
Great little app, Thanks
Here's the site that will also provide the date of manufacture from the serial number:
Is this site still the best way to learn an MBP's manufacturing date? Any reason not to plug one's serial number into this site? Thanks.
The chipmunk.nl site is a creditable site. There isn't any harm in putting your serial number into it.
Thanks very much.
There's also coconutBattery as an option, a small utility app that provides basic information about a Mac regardless of whether it's got a battery installed or not. The actual date is provided by coconutBattery, compared to the week-of-manufacture by the chipmunk.nl portal; I've compared the coconutBattery-provided manufacture date to the date provided by Apple during Genius Bar visits with no reason to question either as they generally match.
So, this 9-year-old thread comes back to coconut utility apps…
Apple serial numbers are only able to be decoded down to a week within a year. coconutBattery and an Apple Store/GSX don't have anything fancy or special to deduce when within that week the device was made.
Thanks for the additional feedback.
Thanks for mentioning this. Just downloaded the above and it's a very cool little app:
I was happy to learn that both my new MBP with Touch Bar (bought at Best Buy) and new AirPods (bought at AT&T) were built this month.
