How to Find Your iPhone/iPad Device ID (UDID)Project managers at Zco Corporation are often asked how to find the unique device ID (UDID)for an iPad, iPod or iPhone. The UDID is important for beta testing apps. Finding it is a simpleprocess that only requires an iTunes account. Developers frequently use the UDID to assignbeta copies of applications, identify the device, and to save changes between installations anddeletions of an app.To get started, hook your device into your computer’s USB slot with the charging cord.If you are on a Mac, open iTunes by clicking on the desktop icon.Or, on a Windows computer, click the Windows logo to open the Start menu.
Click “All Programs” to view a list of your programs. Click “iTunes” to open the program folderand select “iTunes” to open the program.Once you are in iTunes, choose your device under the “Devices” tab. It’s located on the left sideof the screen below the “Store” options.
The summary tab should open to the right, showing information about your device.Click on your serial number, located next to the picture of your device and below its softwareversion.
Once the serial number is clicked, your UDID will appear in its place.
Open the “Edit” menu in iTunes and select Copy Identifier (UDID) to copy your UDID to theclipboard. You can also click Command +C on a Mac or CTRL+C on a Windows computer, tocopy it. Once it’s on the clipboard, you can paste it into a text document or an email. Your UDIDis now available to anyone you want to share it with.Access to your UDID is an important part of the app development process. A third-party app inbeta won’t run on an Apple device without Apple’s prior approval. UDID permissions allow anapp access to run on a specific device for testing purposes. Apple requires that developerslocate the UDID manually in order to install and test software that has not yet been approvedfor Apple devices. We hope these steps have helped you to locate your UDID.Do you have more questions our project managers can answer? We’d be happy to help! Pleaseask us in the comments field below.
