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?

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.

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)
