Finding Your Mac’s Model Name

How To Use About This Mac To Find Your Model Name.


In my previous post about Renaming Apple Devices, I recommended using your Mac’s model name as your Computer Name. Here’s how you find the Model Name:

Using About This Mac

  1. Use the  menu at the top left of your Mac.
  2. Click About This Mac.
  3. After the name of your current OS and its technical number, you’ll see the Mac type (e.g., “MacBook Pro”) and the model name. For example, here’s mine: “(Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014).”

Tip: You can find more information on Apple’s Support Site for your model:
