Several Apple iPhone 11 models in varying colors arranged in a circle.

Apple makes it extremely easy to find the model name and the model number of your iPhone. You can do this even when your iPhone won’t turn on. We’ll show you two different ways to find what kind of iPhone you have.

Use Settings to Find Your iPhone’s Model Name and Model Number

If your iPhone runs iOS 12.2 or later (which means it’s an iPhone 5S or later), use the Settings app to view your phone’s model name and model number.

To do that, first, launch the Settings app on your iPhone. Then select General > About.

Tap "About" in "General."

On the “About” screen, next to “Model Name,” you have your iPhone’s model name listed. On the same page, next to “Model Number,” you have your phone’s model number.

View the iPhone model name and model number.

And that’s how you know what iPhone you’re using. Enjoy!

What If My iPhone Doesn’t Show a Model Name?

On an iPhone 5C or earlier model of the iPhone, the Settings app will only display the model number and not the model name. To find the model name, you’ll have to match the model number with the model name in the table below.

To do that, first, open Settings on your iPhone. Then head to General > About. On the “About” page, next to “Model Number,” tap the string that’s displayed.

Select the string next to "Model Number."

When you tap the string, the number will change and it now starts with an “A.” This is the model number of your iPhone.

Access the iPhone model number.

Now that you have the model number, match it with the iPhone’s model number dataset given below and you’ll know your iPhone’s model name.

And that’s all there is to it.

What If I Can’t Turn On My iPhone?

If your iPhone refuses to switch on, you can’t use the Settings method above to find your phone’s model name or model number. In your case, you’ll have to find the model number physically printed on your device.

If you have an iPhone 8 or later, eject the SIM card tray. At the top of this tray, you’ll find your iPhone’s model number printed. To get your model name, match this model number with the table given below.

If yours is an iPhone 7 or earlier, take a look at the back of your phone and you’ll find the model number printed there. The number starts with an “A,” so it’s easy to find. Once you have this number, match it with the table below to find your phone’s model name.
