How to Know Which iPhone Model You Have

There are several iPhone and iPad models out there. Here’s how to know which model of the device that you own.

With new iPhones and iPads released each year, it’s difficult to tell one model from the other. Luckily, there are a few ways to learn this information, although the steps aren’t necessarily clear cut. Here’s how to identify your iPhone and iPad model numbers.

Find the Model

You can find the model number for iPhones and iPad through the operating system and by looking at the physical device.

By Software

The easiest and most consistent way of checking for the model number on your device is through the operating system. Regardless of the device you have:

  1. Tap the Settings app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
  2. Choose General.
  3. Select About.

From this page, you can see the model name and number at the top of the device.

Looking on the Device

On the iPhone 8 and later devices, you can find the model number by removing the SIM tray and searching in the slot. The model number is on the upper side of the device. On iPad, iPod touch, or the iPhone 7 or earlier, you can find the model number on the back of your device.
