How to know my iPhone model by looking at it in the Settings Menu?

You can learn this very easily just by looking at it in the settings menu… If you know where to find it, of course!

All you have to do is to follow this path:

What model is my iPhone?
Settings > General > Information

Here you will see some info, like:

  • Name: the name you have given to your iPhone
  • Model name: the trade name of your iPhone
  • Model number: the number associated with the model of your iPhone, which determines its technical specifications
  • Serial number: the unique number of your device

The one you need to know if, for example, you want to unlock your iPhone, is “model name”; in the example you can see in the image, it would be “iPhone 12 Pro”. 

How to know my iPhone model by looking directly on the device?

If it is an iPhone 7 or an earlier model you can check the model printed on the back of the device.

If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone 8 or a higher model, you will be able to check this information in the slot where the SIM tray is inserted. In order to do so you will have to first remove the tray shown in the image.
