iPad Identification

From iPad Insight: Use The Model Number for Identification
*(you will probably need a magnifying glass)

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

Once you have your 5 character model number you can check it against our list of models below:
