You can find the model number of your iPhone or iPad using the hardware or the software. The fastest way is using the Settings app.

First, open the Settings (the gear icon) app. Refer to below image:

The number will change to reveal the real model number for your iPhone and iPad. The first number displayed is the part number and the second number is the model number. Tricky by the Apple engineers. See below image:

If your iPhone will not boot up, you can also check the model number from the device. If you are using an iPhone 8 or higher, remove the SIM tray. You will find the model number etched on top in very small letters.

If you are using an iPhone 7 or older, you will find the model number inscribed on the back of the case.

With your iPhone and iPad’s model number, you can determine the exact model name of your device, and the region it came from. Just perform a web search for the model number to find out which iPhone and iPad you have and where it came from.
