With this trick you can see the serial number of your iPhone from your Mac

If you have a Mac and an iPhone, you can see very important information from your phone on the computer, and without having the iPhone nearby. If your cell phone has been stolen, you need to take a quick look at the serial number for repair purposes, or you need this information in any case. In this article we are going to teach you a very simple trick so that you can consult it.

Apple's product ecosystem is characterized by the interconnection of devices. This connection is possible thanks to the ID, which must be configured and activated in all our products. This way, whether it's a phone, a tablet, a watch or a computer, everything can be controlled from one place.

Therefore, we already told you that the essential requirement to be able to do this is that both your Mac and your iPhone must have the same Apple ID registered and activated.

If you are concerned about privacy, there is no problem in this regard. The data that will be displayed on the computer is only accessible if we have accessed the user account that has the ID with the linked iPhone. In fact, this trick follows the same principle as the Find My network, which also shows data such as the serial number. But in this case, it is not necessary to open any website, we just have to go to the Settings of our Mac.

This is how you can see your iPhone serial number on your Mac

The first thing you have to do is go to System Settings > Apple ID. We have to go to the first section of all, where our name will appear. Here a contextual menu will open in which we will see a list with all the parameters to manage everything related to the ID.

However, the important thing is in the Devices section, where we are going to see all those to which we have our ID linked. Depending on which one we select, we will see different information. But when it comes to the iPhone, we will have access to all of the following:

  • Model
  • iOS version that we have installed
  • Telephone number (that of the SIM card that we have inserted)
  • Serial number
  • IMEI code
  • If Find my iPhone is activated (or not), in addition to being able to see the location on the web directly
  • Credit/debit cards linked to Apple Pay

This is where, without having to press anything, each of the numbers will appear next to each section. Directly, on the screen, we will be able to see the serial number and the IMEI code. If our phone has been stolen, we will need these two numbers to file the report, since these are how the device will be identified.

In the same way, we have immediate access through a button to the Find my iPhone website, where we will be able to block, delete or put it in Lost Mode, all of this much more immediately.
