How to find your iPhone's IMEI number

Lucy Hattersley | June 3, 2016
Each iPhone has a unique identity number (known as its IMEI). Here's how to find yours, now that Apple has stopped printing it on the back of its phones

Fortunately, as Kirk points out, it's still easy to find the IMEI number of an absent iPhone, provided you've backed it up in iTunes. All you need to do is open iTunes and go to Preferences, then select the Devices tab (second from the right). You'll see a list of device backups. Hold your cursor over one of the backups that relate to the iPhone that's lost, and you'll see various details including IMEI.
