iPad Model Guide

iPad model numbers

Apple doesn't simply write the generation and model name on the back of each iPad,  But you will find a model number marked on the back of your iPad , and you can use this to work out the rest.

The number you're looking for is labelled, sensibly enough, 'Model', but we often call it the A number. On the iPad below, for example, the A number (shown in the zoomed-in inset at the top right) is A1652, which tells us it's an iPad Pro 12.9.

Once you've found your device's A number, you can easily tell which iPad it is by checking it against the following table:
