Determine your own Apple iPad model: data, model number, specs

Recognize and determine the iPad version - which models do I have?

Do you want to determine your Apple iPad model, for example to check compatibility with apps, the new iOS or a specific accessory? Then you are exactly right here! Even if you want to buy a tablet sleeve, a case or a bag for the device, you should know exactly what to choose. Especially with the tablets Cupertino it's sometimes difficult because the individual names don't per se provide any conclusions about the generation, dimensions, display size and other technical data. I have therefore compiled an overview of the Apple iPads for you here; including iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad Pro.

If you want to determine your Apple iPad model, the easiest way to do this is with the model number. Below you will find tables with all models of simple iPads as well as the versions mini, Air and Pro.

Which iPad do I have: Find the model number

Below I have listed various Apple tablets of the models iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad Pro. There is also the corresponding data, the release year and the model number. The iPad model number is the best way for you to determine which device you are using. So you can easily determine which generation it is, from a Wi-Fi or WiFi + Cellular model, etc. You can find the iPad model number on the back of the device. I already showed you this in the article on iPad battery capacity in mAh (also all editions and generations).

As I said, look for the corresponding number on the back of the device, which consists of an "A" and four digits. You can then compare this with the following table:

iPad Pro

iPad Pro has not only delivered great performance and compatibility with the Apple Pencil since 2015, but also confusion with the versions released (and coming) up to 2017. Because in addition to the two versions with 12,9 inches, there is one with 9,7 inches and even one with 10,5 inches. The model number will also help you here:

Conclusion: determine the iPad model

At first glance, the individual versions of the Apple tablet can be confusing, but they are somewhat logically based on one another. If you've been looking for help in determining your Apple iPad model, I hope this guide article has helped you. By the way, you can get further technical data of the individual tablets directly from Support.apple.com. If you have noticed that your version is already quite old, and if you want to upgrade, you will find the latest iPad models at, among others Cyberport.
