What iPhone do I have? Here’s the easy way to find out

Key Takeaways

  • Each iPhone has its own ‘A’ model number, which can help you identify your specific iPhone model quickly and easily.
  • On older models, the ‘A’ number is printed on the back of the phone, while on newer models, you can find it in the Settings app under General > About > Model Number.
  • To quickly find the model you have on the list in this feature, you can use the Ctrl+F function and search for the ‘A’ number, which will highlight it on the page for easy identification.

The iPhone has changed a lot since it first launched in 2007, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to tell one iPhone from another. Those of you who don’t pay super close attention to every Apple event won’t be able to see the nuanced differences between the many different iPhone models that have debuted since 2007. If you’re talking about the original iPhone compared to the current model, then the differences are obvious of course, but if you’re talking about the iPhone 12 models compared to the iPhone 15 models, it’s not as easy to distinguish between them unless you are an iPhone superfan (or a technology journalist).

Don’t worry though, each iPhone has its own ‘A’ model number. On older models, the ‘A’ number is printed on the back of the phone itself in fine print. But since the iPhone 8/iPhone X and later in 2017, Apple doesn’t put it on the back any longer. If you have a newer iPhone, you can find the number in the Settings app. This is a guide to help you figure out what iPhone model you have and where to find the information quickly and easily.

Which iPhone model do you have?

Wondering what iPhone you have? Wonder no more, we have you covered.

Find the ‘A’ model number on pre-2017 iPhones

You’ll find your iPhone’s ‘A’ model number stamped on the back of your device if you have an iPhone that was made before 2017. Flip your iPhone over, and then look for the “Model AXXXX” identifier. It’ll be in fine print below the “iPhone” label. An iPhone 5C, for instance, may carry an ‘A’ number of “Model A1532”. With the iPhone X and iPhone 8, Apple decided to stop stamping the ‘A’ number on the back. Read on to find out what to do in that case.

Find the “A” model number on all iPhones

What iPhone

In fact, if you can’t read the text on the back of an iPhone or it isn’t there, you can just launch the Settings app and then navigate to General, followed by About. From there, tap once on Model Number to reveal the phone’s ‘A’ model number. Additionally, you can find the rough size of your iPhone’s storage capacity (128GB, 256GB, 512GB etc) by opening the Settings app in iOS and navigating to General > About > Capacity. You’ll also be able to find out the serial number of your iPhone in this section, along with various other bits of information that might be useful, from your Wi-Fi address to what software your device is running. We recommend making sure your iPhone is running the latest software available to ensure you have access to all the most recent features and any bug fixes.
