    I have mid2012 MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 9,2). To upgrade 4gb memories, I have bought OWC memory in this link. I installed them last night. When I look about this Mac window, I can see 16gb memory. However, in system information, there isn't any information about memory' supplier, part and serial number. Are they original or not? I am keeping invoice. If they are not genuine, I will return them. Ekran Resmi 2019-06-14 18.31.51.png Ekran Resmi 2019-06-14 18.32.15.png

    If the RAM works, and it's what you paid for, there's no reason to return it. I would not be concerned about the absence of a serial number. OWC typically adds their own label to their memory, and that's what you need for warranty claims, not a serial number you see in the System Report.

    OWC isn't OEM parts. So are they "genuine"? No. But if it works, it works. Definitely better than paying Apple to upgrade the ram...if they even service that model anymore.

    It seems like Apple is no longer selling their own RAM anyway.

    Thanks for your answers guys. I contacted with OWC and learned that my memory is original. I would like to buy new MacBook Pro but in Turkey, buying a MacBook Pro is as if buying new car because of our currency. For example, to buy a new one, I have to pay 21.500 unit (just like 21.500 dollar or euro) you can check here:https://www.apple.com/tr/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro/15-inç
