How to Check Warranty Coverage

May 13th, 2019

Are you curious how much warranty is left on your iPhone? Have you ever wondered if your Surface Pro tablet is still covered under warranty? 99% of manufacturers offer a standard one year warranty. Manufacturers determine warranty coverage and eligibility based on the serial number. Typically the warranty starts immediately after the unit is purchased and expires one year later.

Most manufacturers such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google provide free repairs and service for their devices when covered under warranty and used under normal operation and normal wear and tear. Manufacturers may deny warranty coverage for devices that have suffered accidental damage or wear and tear outside their recommended use. However, some manufacturers offer extended warranties at an additional cost that can last two or three years and often cover accidental damage and a broad array of other protections such as screen replacement or battery replacement.

Below is a directory of common manufacturers. Many manufacturers allow you to instantly check warranty status by entering the serial number on their website. Clicking the name of the manufacturer below will launch their warranty check page where applicable, and/or their support page if realtime warranty checks are not available.

If you plan to sell your iPhone XS Max or sell your Google Pixel 3 XL, it can be particularly helpful to know how much warranty coverage is remaining so that you can advertise remaining coverage in an attempt to sell at a higher price. Products that have longer remaining warranty, may give buyers assurance, and thereby command a higher selling price.
