For those of you who are not aware what a UDID of iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch actually is, every iPhone or iPad has a UDID or Unique Device Identifier, which is basically a combination of 40 numbers and letters that helps Apple and app developers in identifying iOS devices – as it is unique for every single device out there. In easier terminology, it is serial number which looks this way: 3c8dhh086fgjsabau87hdgw345bd4yjkh78fg664. In this post we will show you how you can find UDID in iTunes 11 or later versions.

    I don’t seem to have an iPhone (or in my case iPad) button in the top right area. Just the Library / iTunes Store button.

    You can’t use third party Apps to get the UDID under iOS7, we learnt the hard way unfortunately, we did a client build and spent a long time trying to work out why the App wasn’t installing on the client’s device. I thought the FFFF prefix looked a bit ‘iffy’ and used iTunes in the end to get the UDID, after a lot of wasted time trying different things. Sadly when the original ‘FFF’ .ipa file was uploaded to TestFlightApp it didn’t pick up on the fake device ID and give us a warning. Anyway we got there in the end, if it’s pre iOS7 then the ‘get my UDID’ apps will still work otherwise you will have to get your UDID via iTunes.

    Don’t use iTunes, connect directly your device on http://www.easy-udid.com. It’s the easiest way to get UDID.

    iTunes is the case, but http://udid.io do this trick in one tap! Open site on iPhone or iPad and it will show you UDID and all device information. It’s secure and developed for common users.
