Welcome to this tutorial on how to find the IMEI number on your iPhone. The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a unique identifier for your device, and it can be useful in various situations, such as when reporting a stolen phone or when unlocking your device.

Method 1: Using the Phone App

To find the IMEI number using the Phone app, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Tap on the “Keypad” tab at the bottom of the screen.
  • Step 3: Dial *#06# using the keypad.
  • Step 4: Your IMEI number will be displayed on the screen.

Method 2: Using Settings

If you prefer using the Settings app to find your IMEI number, here’s what you need to do:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “General”.
  • Step 3: Tap on “About”.
  • Step 4: Scroll down until you find “IMEI”. Your IMEI number will be listed next to it.


If you have a dual-SIM iPhone, there will be two IMEI numbers listed—one for each SIM card slot. Make sure you select the correct one if necessary.

Method 3: Using the SIM Tray

If you don’t have access to your iPhone’s software, you can still find the IMEI number by checking the SIM tray:

  • Step 1: Locate the SIM tray on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Remove the SIM tray using a SIM ejector tool or a paperclip.
  • Step 3: Look for the IMEI number printed on the tray itself.

This method is particularly useful if your iPhone is not functioning properly and you cannot access the software.

In Conclusion

Finding your iPhone’s IMEI number is quick and easy. Whether you prefer using the Phone app, Settings app, or checking the SIM tray, you now have multiple methods to retrieve this important identifier.

Remember to keep a note of your IMEI number in a safe place, as it can be handy in various situations.

Note: It’s important to exercise caution when sharing your IMEI number with others and only provide it to trusted sources or authorized service providers.
