Another quick way of finding out your iPhone’s IMEI number is by checking the device settings. Go to Settings and select General. Tap on ‘About’ and scroll down to find the IMEI number. You will be able to spot it under the ‘Primary’ section. You will also find Network details, Carrier details, and Certificate Trust Settings here.

Find the IMEI number on the SIM tray

If you haven’t made the switch to iPhone 14 yet, you can easily find the IMEI number of your device by popping out the SIM tray. All iPhones after the iPhone 6s have the IMEI number printed on the SIM tray. Apple recently made the switch to e-SIMs, so this method won’t apply to iPhone 14.

Use the Finder app on Mac to view your iPhone’s IMEI number

Connect your iPhone to a Mac using a Lightning to USB cable. Open the Finder app and click on your iPhone on the left side menu. Go to the General tab and click under the device name several times to reveal the IMEI number. This method comes in handy if your iPhone is locked or if you use an e-SIM exclusively. 

Find your iPhone’s IMEI number using iTunes

While the Finder app is exclusive to Mac, iTunes runs on PC as well. This is the only way you can find your iPhone’s IMEI number using a PC. Connect your iPhone to the PC using the Lightning to USB cable and open iTunes. Click on the iPhone icon on the top left side and select ‘Summary’. Click on ‘Phone number’ on the right panel to view the IMEI number.

Find the IMEI number on the phone’s packaging

If you still own your iPhone or iPad’s retail box, you can easily find the IMEI number there. Inspect the box for the sticker that contains the model number. You will find the IMEI code printed there. Sometimes the sticker is placed inside the box to ensure it is only visible to the buyer. 

Use the Apple ID website

This is the best way to find your iPhone’s IMEI number if you don’t have your device on you. Go to the Apple ID website and sign in using your Apple ID. If your device is still connected to your iCloud account, you will be able to view its IMEI number. Go to the devices page and select your iPhone. Scroll down and you will be able to view the IMEI number.
