Please note: Although my question is tangentially related to iOS development, it is not a development question; it is an iTunes user question!


iPhone 7+ here. I'm a developer playing around with iOS development for the first time, and am trying to deploy a toy/hobby iOS app (that I wrote via XCode) to my iPhone.

It looks like the first thing I need to do is figure out what my iPhone's Device ID is. Following the instructions for finding Device ID through iTunes, I launched iTunes and then connected my phone to it. However, whereas (according to that link) I should be seeing a screen that looks like this:

enter image description here

I only see a screen that contains three fields:

  • Capacity
  • Phone Number
  • Serial Number

But I don't see a Device ID or UDID field like the document says. Do iPhone's not have UDIDs? Is the Serial Number a useable substitute for UDID?

Click on your phone in the top-left corner to show phone details.

From here, you can choose Summary in the sidebar, then click on your serial to show the UDID.

  • Thanks @grgarside (+1) - your suggestion worked but I still cannot find my "Device ID" or "UDID" as the linked document portrays. I updated my question with the latest problem, any ideas how to locate this UDID? – smeeb Sep 7 '17 at 15:11

    @smeeb Have you followed the last sentence of my answer per ‘click on your serial to show the UDID’? – grg Sep 7 '17 at 15:12

  1. You need to click on the device icon next to the Category chooser.
  2. Click on the serial number itself to change it to UDID.
