How do I find my Apple IMEI number?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To find the IMEI number on your Apple device, you can follow these simple steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
3. In the General menu, tap on “About.”

On the About page, you will find various information about your device, including the serial number, IMEI/MEID, and ICCID. The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a unique identifier for your device and is often required for registration or support purposes.

If you don’t see the IMEI number immediately, you might need to scroll down a bit further to find it. It is usually located below the serial number.

To copy the IMEI number, simply touch and hold the number, and a copy option should appear. Tap on “Copy” to copy the IMEI number to your device’s clipboard. You can then paste it into Apple registration or support forms as needed.

It’s important to note that the location of the IMEI number may vary slightly depending on the iOS version you are using. However, the general process remains the same.

Finding the IMEI number can be particularly helpful in situations such as reporting a lost or stolen device to your mobile carrier or when seeking support from Apple. It’s a unique identifier that can help track and identify your device.

Remember, the IMEI number is different from the serial number. While the serial number is used to identify the specific device model, color, and storage capacity, the IMEI number is a unique identifier for the device itself.
