    can you write here the production week number?

    does the ipad 2 have the old format or the new format serial number? :)

    My 5th and 6th numbers are 91 and the last digit is 2. Rest are letters. Unless they did it at the end (week 2) I don't think they are indicating that now. Unless my iPad has been sitting around for 91 weeks. What are yours?

    Looks like you can't tell for iPads but my 3GS has numbers near the beginning that indicate the production week.

    My serial is all letters, no numbers... Guess there's no way to decode iPad S/Ns?

    Odds are they just switched to letters & numbers because they can hold 36 different characters in each position instead of just ten when using alphabetical only. I am sure the serials still represent dates made etc.

    Well then I suppose this database doesn't work with the new numbers. Oh well someone will figure it out soon enough.

    I think OP was trying to trick y'all to post your serial numbers online and then hack into it....

    Weird...

    As you can see in the screenshot, it says week 12. I think that's this week. Thing is I bought it last Friday, 25th March.

    It could be they ran out of unique codes in production so moved to the next week?

    I know that in 2009 they shipped week 53 iMacs. Yeah, work that one out.

    (BTW I blurred half the serial to protect security)
