Since 2007, Apple has released over two dozen models of the iPhone. If you've had yours for a while, you might have forgotten which model you even have.

That's not a problem, though, because you can quickly find out your model name and model number in your iPhone's Settings app.

How to check what iPhone you have

1. Open the Settings app and then tap General.

2. At the top of the General page, tap About.

3. If your iPhone is running iOS 12.2 or later, you should see the Model Name listed on the third line.

If your iPhone is running iOS 12.2 or later, you can find the model name on the third line.

4. Underneath the Model Name, a Model Number is listed. However, don't just trust the code listed next to Model Number. For whatever reason, Apple doesn't actually list the model number by default - that's the SKU code, which won't help you here. Instead, tap that SKU code, and it'll be replaced by your actual model number, which is a shorter code that starts with an "A."

Tap the entry on the model number line to change the SKU number to the model number.

Quick tip: If you have an older iPhone that can't upgrade to iOS 12.2, you'll have to do a little more sleuthing. You won't see an entry for the model name. Use the model number to look up your model name in the list below.

Understanding iPhone model numbers

Using the model number from Settings, you can find out which iPhone model you have. Apple describes every model name and number on its support pages, but here's a summary that's much easier to browse:
