How to Identify Your Mac mini

All Mac mini models look similar, but it is quite easy to locate the serial number of each model, model identifier, and part number in macOS, on the device’s surface and on its packaging, if you still have the box.

How to Find Mac mini Serial Number, Model Identifier and Part Number

In the “About This Mac” window

Choose Apple menu and head for About This Mac. The window will list your computer’s official model name and its serial number. You can then use this serial number to find tech specs for this specific model or to check support options.

The computer’s model identifier allows users to get more information about the device. To find the identifier:

  • In the About This Mac window, click System Report.
  • The System Information window will open, where you will be able to find Model Identifier in the Hardware Overview

You can use the identifier to locate your Mac mini in the table below.

On the surface of your Mac mini

To find the information on the surface of the device, shut down the computer, and unplug all cords and connectors. Now turn the Mac mini over.

  • On Mac mini models manufactured before 2010, the serial number can be easily found on a label on the edge of the device’s underside, between bar codes.
  • On Mac mini models manufactured from 2010, the serial number will appears on the underside of the computer. You will find it near the regulatory markings.

On the original packaging

If you still have the original packaging for your Mac mini, you can find the serial number on a barcode label on the box. Note that the packaging also lists the Apple part number. You can match that number to the number that appears in the table below to find your Mac mini model.

Note also that in Apple part numbers, the letters “xx” before the slash represent variables which define country or region

On the Receipt or Invoice

Additionally, you can find the serial number, model number, and configuration details of your Mac mini on its receipt or invoice, if you have purchased the computer directly with Apple or its subsidiaries, and if you still have the invoice.
