Apple extends iMac HDD replacement program
Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) will replace affected hard drives free of charge.
Apple is contacting affected iMac owners who provided a valid email address during the product registration process to let them know about this program. If you have not been contacted, but think you have a 1TB Seagate hard drive, you can enter your serial number below to see if it's part of this program.
Originally this program covered 1TB Seagate drives sold with 2011 iMacs. Now the program extends back to 2009.
Customers can obtain free service on their qualifying iMac until three years after purchase or April 12, 2013. Customers can check if their machine is covered by entering their iMac serial number at the link below.
