Table: iPad model number to iPad model and year of release

ipad model number

If you want to know which iPad model you have, the tip is usually to look for the model number on the back of the iPad. This is often laser engraved in rather small letters on the aluminum back. I usually use the iPhone magnifying glass for this because I can't read this small font with my eyes.

This graphic from Apple shows where the iPad model number is hidden on the back of the device.

Once you've fished out the number, you usually have to click through longer lists of iPad models to find the appropriate model. To simplify this thing a bit, here with chatGPT and the Apple support page for the iPad models created a table that has the full iPad model numbers in the first column and the year of release and the name of the iPad in columns two and three.

This means you can find the iPad model you are looking for much faster, since the model numbers are sorted in ascending order.

So far so good. Now I just have to remember to update this table with every new iPad model that comes out. So if you notice a model number is missing, let me know... there's a good chance I forgot to update the table with new data.

  1. Good example that you should check AI texts again before publishing them. Would make more sense to name the iPad models first. Because after all, the table seems to be sorted by it. At first glance, the table looks completely confused because the years keep changing. Only in the last column can you see why this is the case... In addition, models are missing: no iPad 10, no iPad pro from 2022, etc. Apparently the Chat GPT Bot can't do everything after all

    1. Hello Rainer! Thank you for your comment. I checked the chart a few times and looked up the model numbers in Apple's original site. They all agreed with me on the correct iPad model. However, you are right that some iPad models are missing and the sorting of the model numbers is also a mess. But roughly what came out was what I expected. I used Claude.ai before and it made major mistakes. Since chatGPT is definitely better. But it simply “forgot” a few models. I'll correct that the days after I'm back from vacation.

    2. So I hope I've fixed all the issues now... the missing models should be included and with the Ninja Tables Plugin you can now sort the table however you like. ;-)
