If you have a technical problem with the iPad and when you call up Apple support they may ask for the Serial number, UDID, IMEI or the ICCID.

There are several ways how you could get this number on your device. Here's how:

1. Go to the Home screen.

2. Tap on Settings.

3. Then select General.

4. Then select About.

5. From the About screen you can find out about your device Serial Number, UDID, IMEI and ICCID.

Alternatively you can turn your iPad over and at the back of the device you could find these details. Another way to get this detail is via iTunes.

1. Plugin your device to the computer and start iTunes.

2. Select your device un the Devices list on the left hand panel.

3. Then click on the Summary Tab.

4. Now click on the Serial number to see the serial number and other detail. You will also see the word identifier which shows your phone Unique ID (UDID).

I would agree that this is the *easy* to get this UDID or IMEI numbers, but what if the device isn't operable? from what I see there isn't a serial number stamped or etched on the back of the device, I am only part way of mucking around inside, so far I have yet to yank the battery out or look on the reverse side of the logic board. Certainly, the obverse side (the side you can readily see) has no markings or indications.

As mentioned by Terrence, it is there but with very small fine print. Like font size of 4 point.

You can get the UDID through the iTunes software. See the end of the tutorial of how you can get it.

The article references the UDID, but never shows how to actually find out.
