It was one hour left to complete the 24 hour cycle of a day and bid goodbye to one of the usual tiring day of my daily work schedule, and I was all set to hog on everything my refrigerator had to offer, I took a long yawn to depict my exhaustion and lifted my finger to close my lappy, and suddenly saw a new notification on Skype, with eagerness I clicked the icon, found it to be one of my clients, who had written,” how to get UDID on my iPhone”? , it was late, so I thought to reply a little later, after serving my appetite desire, but the 2 ‘?’ after the first comment from the client, forced me to keep the thought of my dinner a little aside and serve his query first. Well, not so surprisingly, I ended up the Skype chat + call with him after 45 minutes of tiring session, where to explanation consumed a little more time, and I pity myself being starved to death, but had to calm myself down, with a smiley received from my client at the end. My next destination was absolutely fridge, where I finished the leftovers without a delay and while munching on the pizza slice, a thought came into my mind.

I realized that most of the clients are from non-technical background and to expect them to understand the technical aspects of their iPhone, is little too much to ask for. So why not inform all of them the basic requirements of iPhone technicalities from our blog portal, with a determined thought process of writing a blog on UDID of the iPhone, I hit the sack to be awaken in next 7 hrs. Today, am here writing the blog, let’s proceed and handle the technicalities with little expertise to make it more convenient for the clients, who can access this relevant piece of information, across the globe

  • What Is UDID


The UDID is the abbreviation for Unique Device Identifier (UDID) and are unique to every individual iPhone and iPad. It consists of 40 characters and has a mixture of 40 letters and numbers, for illustration, will look something like this 2g7k7cc806d345be8e8928923f6573089b116577. The combination of numeric and alphabets is unique for every device and can never be similar to another.

  • Why UDID Is Needed


Your iPhone can only install programs that are approved by Apple. Applications in the App Store have been approved by Apple for general distribution, but beta customers get to try the app before it’s in the store. We register your UDID with Apple so they can approve your application, especially for your iPhone.

  • What Is The Use Of UDID


As a user, you would have wondered, that’s why you have been asked for the iPhone’s UDID, and it leaves you little distressed. For your relief, let us bring the reason, why UDID is asked from you, with a relevant UDID, a developer can register your device and give it access to non-official (non-App-Store-vetted) software. The UDID carries a huge database to track app installed on your iPhone based on your UDID and they use that data to target ads. UDID might also be attached to a username, password, and social network login, and technically, it’s merely a number, but if it’s put together with a database of other information it becomes the info bank which holds all that information together.

  • How To Find Out Your iPhone’s UDID


The word UDID, sounds so tricky and complex, but eventually the process to find it out is extremely easy and requires few steps. The steps to find out your iPhone’s UDID, follows:

  • Step 1


Open iTunes not on your iPhone, but connect the iTunes on Mac or PC app


  • Step 2


Plug in your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad


  • Step 3


Click its name under the devices list


  • Step 4


Make sure you’re on the Summary tab


  • Step 5


Click on the text “Serial Number” , it will change to show your UDID


  • Step 6


That is your UDID, just select Copy from the Edit menu


  • Step 7


Your UDID is now in the clipboard; paste it into an email or message


So this was all about getting the UDID from your phone, and I think it sounds so easy and non-technical to proceed with.
