What iPhone do I Have

Knowing your iPhone’s exact model name is a must if you need to change some of its parts. By knowing your iPhone’s full name, you won’t end up buying parts that don’t fit or that aren’t supported by your phone’s model. This will save both your time and money.

Since not everyone has full documentation for their iPhone, we will show you how to find out your phone’s exact model manually.

Check for the Model Number on Your iPhone

iPhone model numbers are always printed on the phone’s body. The only question is where, as the locations vary depending on the iPhone’s version.

Although this might change in the future, there are two common locations where manufacturers choose to print the model number:

  1. The back side of your iPhone – The iPad, iPod touch, iPhone 7, and its earlier versions all have their model numbers on the back.

  2. The SIM tray – The iPhone 8 and newer versions have their model number printed on the SIM tray. Simply remove your iPhone’s SIM tray and have a look in its tray slot. Make sure that you have light overhead because, otherwise, you won’t be able to see the number. The full model number is located on the upper side of the SIM tray.

In case you don’t know, the iPhone model numbers always start with an “A” and have four digits next to it. For example, A1920 is an iPhone model number.

Check for the Model Number or Model Name Through Settings

It is quite easy for model number prints to get damaged or completely wiped off. Not being able to see only one digit from the model number could be enough to prevent you from figuring out your iPhone’s full name.

Luckily, there’s another route you can try. Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Navigate to your iPhone’s Settings.
  2. Tap on the General options.
  3. Select About.

Your iPhone’s About section contains the information that you are looking for. It has the Name that you have set (John Doe’s iPhone, for example), Software Version, Model Name, Model Number, and the Serial Number.

To view your iPhone’s model number, simply tap on the Model Number option. Every device using iOS 12.2 has its model number visible in the Settings menu. From there, you can check your device’s Model Name as well.

If you use both of these methods, you will notice that the model number results match.
