User’s running iOS 10.3 or newer:

One of the new features introduced by Apple in iOS 10.3 was the ability to quickly check what iPhone do you have within the Settings app by just following some simple steps. Any iPhone using iOS 12.2 or later can see the Model Name by going to “General”, then tap “About” there you will find the Model Name.

  • First, open the Settings app.
  • At the top, you will find your name and a profile photo with Apple ID. Just tap on it.
  • Scroll down to the devices section. There the first device will be your iPhone, just tap on it.
  • Under the device info, you will see the model of your iPhone.

So, it is easy to find out the model of your iPhone if you are using iOS 10.3 or above. You can also find out what iPhone do you own by checking the model number given at the back of your iPhone too.

The model numbers of the latest iPhones with iOS 10.3 and above are mentioned below:

Additionally, you can find the capacity of your iPhone whether it is 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or 128GB, etc. simply by opening the Settings app in iOS and following General > About > Capacity. The capacity mentioned in the capacity section will be slightly less than what you originally have. For example, a 16GB iPhone will probably show a capacity of around 12GB. The difference is mainly because of the calculation of GBs by the producers and the intelligent software. The phone makers count 1GB = 1000 MBs while the software treats it differently and counts 1GB = 1024 MBs. So, when you are given 1GB by a phone maker, you get 1000 MBs instead of 1024MBs. This is the storage problem that afflicts all computing devices, and you can’t get an idea of original storage capacity until you buy an iPhone and look into the settings.
