Obtaining an iOS UDID on a PC
- Launch iTunes. If you do not have iTunes installed on the PC, install it.
- Click the button for your iOS device. This can be found to the right of the library selection menu at the top of the iTunes window. It may take a few moments for it to appear if you’ve just plugged your device in.
- Click the Summary tab. You’ll find this option in the menu on the left after selecting your device.
- Click the Serial Number entry. It’s in the top section of the Summary page. Clicking the serial number will switch to the UDID.
- Right-click the UDID and click Copy. You can also just press ⌘Command+C (macOS) or Ctrl+C (Windows) to copy it immediately without even selecting it.
- Paste the UDID wherever you need it. You can paste it into a document to save it, or email it to a developer that is requesting it.
