Which iPhone do I have? That’s how you recognize every iPhone!

Which iPhone do I have? For the average person, it can be quite difficult to determine whether you now have an iPhone XR or 11 for example. You can find out which device you have via the model number and other details. In this overview, you will find all iPhones since 2007.

In advance: the model number

To identify your iPhone, you may need your model number in some cases. With the iPhone 7 and older this is on the back of the device. Do you have a newer device, or would you rather not take your iPhone out of its case? You can also find it via “Settings> General> Info.” Tap the number after “Model” for the correct number.

The iPhone 11 Pro is best recognized by the camera: for the first time, the iPhone has three cameras, arranged in a triangle. In terms of colors, the well-known palette has been supplemented with the new color midnight green. The iPhone 11 Pro also looks like two drops of water on the iPhone 11 Pro Max which is discussed below, but with a screen diagonal of 5.8 inches, the Pro is just a bit smaller.
