check iphone model number

Here we are going to show you how to check what iPhone model do you have using the iPhone model number printed on the back of your device. While most of you would already know which model of iPhone you own, but not everyone does, and you often come across an iPhone and you won’t be able to identify it. For instance, it’s hard to distinguish an iPhone 4 from an iPhone 4s, same is the case with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. So the next step to find the iPhone model is to check its model number and compare that against the list of devices posted below to check what model that iPhone actually is.

Checking iPhone model using its model number has its advantages in scenarios like when the iPhone is turned off, dead, broken, bricked due to software issues, or stuck in recovery or DFU mode. Despite the fact that above mentioned issues won’t let you boot into the device’s operating system, you still be able to identify what you are working with. This becomes an invaluable information in the time of iPhone repair, replacing its components and also when restoring a new software version in downloading the proper firmware file for your device.
