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
- Use the menu at the top left of your Mac.
- Click About This Mac.
- 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).”
