Are you trying to figure out which iPhone model you have? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Whether you’re looking to sell your device, troubleshoot a problem, or simply satisfy your curiosity, identifying your iPhone model is essential. In this article, we will guide you through the process of finding out what iPhone you have.

Method 1: Check the Model Number on the Back

If you have an older iPhone model, you can easily find the model number engraved on the back of your device. Flip your iPhone over and locate the small text under the Apple logo. Look for a combination of letters and numbers starting with the letter ‘A’.

Note: If your iPhone has a case or cover, remove it to reveal the model number.

Once you find the model number, use that information to identify your device by visiting Apple’s official website. They provide a comprehensive list of all iPhone models along with their corresponding model numbers.

Method 2: Check in Settings

If you have a newer iPhone running iOS 12 or later, there’s another way to determine your device’s model:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “General”.
  3. Select “About”.
  4. In the “About” section, look for “Model Name” or “Model”.

This should display the specific model name of your iPhone. For example, if it says “iPhone X”, then that’s what you have!

Troubleshooting Tip:

If your device is not turning on or is experiencing software issues preventing access to settings, don’t worry. You can find the model number printed on the SIM card tray:

  1. Locate the SIM card slot on your iPhone.
  2. Use the SIM removal tool (or a paperclip) to eject the tray.
  3. On the tray, you’ll find the model number printed near the bottom.

This method applies to various iPhone models, including older ones like iPhone 6 and newer ones like iPhone 11.

Method 3: Use Siri

If you prefer a hands-free approach, you can ask Siri to tell you which iPhone model you have. Simply activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” or pressing and holding the home button (on older iPhones) or side button (on newer iPhones), and ask “What iPhone do I have?” Siri will then provide you with the model information.

Note: Make sure Siri is enabled in your device’s settings before attempting this method.

In Conclusion

Identifying your iPhone model is important for various reasons. Now that you know three different methods to determine which iPhone you have, you can confidently share this information whenever needed. Whether it’s for troubleshooting, selling, or simply satisfying your curiosity, knowing your device’s model will always come in handy!
