Sometimes it forces you to log in to use it.
It no longer shows the message
We're sorry, the number you have provided cannot be found in our records. Please verify the number and try again
Instead, it just shows:
This Serial Number is not valid
That means something has changed, and it is worth looking in to. If the guide is no longer accurate, it needs to be updated.
Also, now, my serial number (which passed the checks before) no longer works.
In other words, Apple has probably (once again) changed their validation process, and that warrants investigation.
Agreed ! For what it's worth, I believe you could be correct, about apple collecting every serial entry. They then could take that log, and have someone go through to validate or black list? I'm not sure they are that concerned. However if they went as far as to make this change, stands to reason. Why not when we are giving it to them on a platter.
