What iPhone Do I Have?

Once upon a time, Apple used to slap a nice big badge of sorts on the back of their iOS devices that clearly told you the capacity of the device you had. That, combined with the visual aesthetics, meant that you could tell what was what in a matter of seconds — at a glance! Sadly, those days are now gone. With the tech’ giant releasing a new model every year, each having a few different capacities and colour variations, it was always going to get to the stage where they needed to elaborate a little more than just slapping the size of their hard drive on the case and forgetting about it.

Instead, we now have model numbers. Model numbers are a great way to define exactly what your product should be, however they have always been geared more towards internal use than the consumer. So, with that in mind, we have compiled a pretty comprehensive list (that we will endeavour to update as new units are released) of all the Apple model numbers currently in use.


Locating the model number

Locating the model number is a relatively simple process. Simply flip your iPhone over and it should be located about ⅓ of the way up the device, just below the “iPhone” label. In our image above, the model number is A1533. To the average consumer, this means absolutely nothing but to a savvy Apple enthusiast, this suggests that the device is an iPhone 5s.

Once you have found the model number, simply cross reference it with the table below to confirm the model of your handset. As this list grows over time, it may become difficult to locate your model number. To find it quickly and efficiently press Ctrl + F, type in your model number and press enter.

Find the capacity of your iPhone

Finding the capacity — or total storage space — of your iPhone is a relatively simple task, especially for older models. All iPhones prior to the 4S had their capacity printed on the back, just below the “iPhone” label. However, because Apple like to make their designs as sleek and minimal as possible, they decided to remove it on the 4S and all later models. This means that to confirm your capacity, you need to head into your phones settings to determine its specifics.

Fear not, it’s no where near as daunting as it may sound. Simply tap the settings icon on your homescreen, then “General” and finally “About”. You’ll now see the capacity about ⅔ of the way down the screen, as shown in the walkthrough image below.

Find your iPhone's capacity

It’s important to note that a portion of your total capacity is taken up by the phones operating system (iOS). In our example above, we can see that the capacity is listed as 13.3gb, which tells us that the handset is a 16gb model. At the time of writing, iPhones had been released with the following capacities;

  • 2 gigabytes

  • 4 gigabytes

  • 8 gigabytes

  • 16 gigabytes

  • 32 gigabytes

  • 64 gigabytes

Just remember that the basic rule of thumb is to round it up. That’s it! You now have all the details of your iPhone. While you are in there you will also see how much space you have remaining on your device, which version of iOS you’re running and which carrier (e.g o2, EE, Vodafone etc) you are on. Nifty, ‘eh?
