Tip #2: How to Tell iPhone model number from the iOS settings

For newer models, simply check the model number under your iPhone settings. In fact, any iPhone 5S or later can also show the Model Name on display.

I'll cover that in a minute.

Remember that for older iPhones running iOS version older than iOS 12.2, you'll also need to use the model number list from our TIP #1 to match the iPhone model name with the model number.

For this tactic you need to make sure that your iphone is running.

Press home button, then launch the iOS Settings and navigate to General => About => Model (or Model Number). Tap once on Model to show the model number.

Step by step tutorial on how to know what is my iPhone model:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Tap General
  • Go to About
  • Tap the Part Number

Once there, you will see the model number shown next to the part number.
