How Can I Check For The Model Number On My iPhone?

iPhone model numbers are usually displayed on the phone’s body. The only thing to bother your head about is where, because the location changes depending on the iPhone’s version.

Even if this might change in years to come, there are 2 common locations where manufacturers decide to print the model number. See them below:

1. The Back Side Of Your iPhone

The iPad, iPod touch, iPhone 7, and its ancient versions all have their model numbers on the back. So if you own these devices, check there.

2. The SIM Tray

The iPhone 8 and more recent versions have their model number printed on the SIM tray. Just take out your iPhone’s SIM tray and check its tray slot. Be certain that you have light overhead, else, the number will not be visible. The complete model number is seen on the upper side of the SIM tray.

If you do not know before, the iPhone model numbers will always begin with an "A" and then 4 digits after it. For instance, A1940 is an iPhone model number.
