Ever since Apple released their first iPad on April 3rd, 2010, they’ve quickly become a commonplace device. Combining the portability and features of a smartphone with the size of a laptop screen, iPads have proven themselves perfect for note taking, video watching, ebook reading, and much more. However, if you ever need a repair or a new accessory for your iPad you’ll need to find the model number, which isn’t always obvious. Below we’ll walk you through a couple super-easy methods on how to find your iPad’s model number.

At a Glance

  • You can easily find your iPad’s model number by simply removing any protective case it may have and looking on the back.
  • You can also find the model number by going to Settings > General > About.
  • Once you have your model number, you can find out what kind of iPad you have.


How To Find An iPad Model Number

If your iPad’s been damaged and needs a screen replacement or any new parts, you’ll need to know the iPad’s model number. Luckily, Apple made finding the model number super easy.

The simplest way is to simply turn your iPad around! Take off any protective case you might have on it first (be careful not to drop it!) and look on the back near the bottom. You should see the word “iPad”, and below that is the model number beginning with “A”, e.g. A1432. 

Congratulations! You now know the model number of your iPad. With this information you’ll be able to get the right parts for repairs or find new accessories compatible with your model.


Finding An iPad Model Number In Settings

It’s just as easy to find the model number in the Settings app on your iPad instead of looking on the back. To do this, open the Settings app, go to General, and tap About. Here you’ll see the model name and model number listed right next to each other. This is the same information you’d need for any repairs or new accessories.

Now that you have the model number, you have everything you need to get your device repaired!
