There are a number of reasons it might be vital to determine which iPad model you have, or which iPad model you’re thinking about purchasing. For beginners, it may well affect what cost you want to pay or can anticipate to get when buying or selling an iPad.

Luckily, it’s an extremely simple thing to do. Right here’s the best ways to identify which model an iPad is:

– Look at the back of your iPad. Down to the center bottom you’ll see the word iPad, and below it the amount of storage space it’s (16,32, or 64GB). Below that you’ll see some fine print about the iPad. The first line begins with ‘Made by Apple in California.’ At the end of that line you’ll see ‘Model’ and a 5 character model number starting with the letter ‘A’. For instance, my iPad is Model A1430– an iPad 3rd gen 64GB WiFi + Cellular model.

– When you’ve your 5 character model number you can check it against Apple’s listing of all iPad models, found right here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5452

Apple’s listing will inform you which generation your iPad is, when it was released, and whether it’s a WiFi just model or WiFI + Cellular.

That’s it. That’s all you’ve to understand in order to determine which model an iPad is.
