How to find the model number of your iPhone X and iPhone 8

For the past two years, Apple's iPhone line has been sporting glass backs devoid of any of the old legal warnings or information — at least in the United States. But that can make it harder to find out things like your iPhone's model number. Since different iPhone models support different carriers and bands around the world, if you're planning to use your iPhone in other countries, if you're interested in CDMA (Verizon/Sprint) compatibility, or you just prefer Qualcomm or Intel modems, it's important information to know.

Here's how to find it.

How do you find your iPhone model number?

Because, in some regions including the U.S., Apple doesn't prints model numbers and other information on the backs of iPhone devices that have a glass backside, you now have to look elsewhere to find it. You have two options:

  1. Pop out the SIM card tray and read the fine print.
  2. Look it up in iOS.

To find the model number of your iPhone on the SIM card tray

If you happen to have your SIM card tray out, you can look there. Otherwise, this isn't very convenient.

  1. Insert a SIM Card Removal Tool into the SIM Card pin slot on your iPhone.
  2. Push in to pop out the tray.
  3. Hold the tray up to bright light. Use a magnifier if you need to.

To find the model number of your iPhone in iOS

If you just want the model number, you can get it quickly.

  1. Launch Settings.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on About.
  4. Tap on Model to switch from the part number to the actual model number.

How to find all the regulatory information for your iPhone in iOS

If you want all the regulatory information, including the model number right up top, you can get that with just a couple more taps.

  1. Launch Settings.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on About.
  4. Tap on Legal.
  5. Tap on Regulatory.
