How to find out iPad model using iTunes?
The last way to determine the iPad model, which also has the right to exist, is carried out using regular iTunes.
Using this method is very simple:
- connect the tablet to your computer,
- launch iTunes and go to the device’s page,
- see the model of your iPad.
You can do the same with any Apple device. And it’s convenient enough that you are always reminded how old your device is.
The article was not too big, but informative enough for you to know the model of your favorite iPad.
There are many more ways, but I thought that these three are the simplest and you will spend very little of your time on them.
Using serial number
The most common way to determine the model of a device is through a serial number. This method is used to establish information about whether the legal or “gray” iPad fell into your hands, and whether you have the right to technical support in the company.
How to determine iPad model by serial number:
- We go to the site https://checkcoverage.apple.com/ru/ru/,
- Enter the serial number of your tablet (you can find information on the back cover of the device),
- Enter the verification code,
- Click on the “Continue” button
Determining the iPad model by serial number is problematic due to the fact that this information is printed on the case in very small print. Try not to make mistakes, as a limited number of attempts are given to enter information.
After entering the correct information, the data you need will be displayed on the screen, including the model of the device.
Model identification by number
The back cover of the device also contains other information that will help in determining the model of the tablet. So, for example, there is information about the real model of the device - the information is presented in the form of the inscription “Model”, the letter “A” and a numerical designation. Below is a list of devices with information about the real model that will help you determine the exact model of the device.

Identify iPad Models via iTunes
To determine the model in another way, you will need a computer on which iTunes is installed, as well as a cable to connect the device. The method will be useful in cases where the data on the serial number has been erased.
In order to determine the model, it is necessary:
- We connect the tablet to the PC,
- Launch iTunes
- We click on the tablet icon, which is located in the upper left corner of the program window,
- In the upper right corner will be displayed information about the model of your iPad.
Here you can see the data on the serial number of your device, the version of the current firmware and other useful information.
