Identify iPad Models


Common Mistake

As a phone repair technician just starting out in the industry it is very easy to order and reorder the wrong parts and accessories from us and other suppliers because they do not know how to identify devices. There are so many different models and types of smart devices around in today's society all with similar looks and builds; without the proper know how it can be easy to mistake one model for the other. We here at TTA would like to extend a helping hand and share our knowledge with you. On the back or in the settings of every device its "Model number" can be found. For example, Apple devices have their model numbers located on the back of the device is a for digit code starting with A i.e. A1524
