How To Identify Your iPhone Model

Identify Your iPhone Handset If You Are Unsure

Apple has produced a wide range of mobile handheld smartphones over the years and the trend looks set to continue in the future.  From the early 3G released in 2008/09 to the later models including the XS and XS max, this has been a family of devices that have been hugely successful. One of the world’s ‘must-have’ personal pieces of tech, Apple’s phone range has been a massive success for the company. With cutting-edge technical features, user-friendliness and a great, ‘cool’  look, these were and remain the phones to be seen with. Other manufacturers are starting to haul this uber-successful range of devices back but Apple still has ‘the look’. This has lead to a very busy market in re-sales of handsets from this range smartphone. Strange though it may seem, with the second-hand phone market so vibrant, we see customers how have purchased a smartphone but aren’t necessarily exactly which model they’ve bought. We want to demystify the apple family and have produced a handy guide below to the iPhone family (and we will add to it as new models are released).

If you’re unsure which smartphone from Apple you have, then look over our table below which may help you identify it.  Of course, having identified your phone, if you need some replacement parts then you can check out our range of replacements and spares for the entire range of Apple phones.
