According to Apple's website:

All Apple hardware comes with a one-year limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary telephone technical support. To extend your coverage further, purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan or AppleCare+.

It's really easy to check your warranty status on your Apple product. To get started, you need to determine the serial number of your product.

Click where it says Version until you see the Serial Number.
