Capacity

Some iPhone models list the storage capacity on the back case, which is the easiest way to find it. If your iPhone does not, you can still find it via the settings menu.

  • Browse to SETTINGS > GENERAL > ABOUT
  • Scroll down to CAPACITY
Is Apple’s iPhone upgrade program worth it? Probably not. Find out why

Alternatively, you can view the total capacity and available capacity:

  • Browse to SETTINGS > GENERAL > [DEVICE] STORAGE
  • Look toward the top right to find the available and total capacity (for example, 56 GB of 512 GB Used)

Depending on your iOS version, the stated capacity might not perfectly match the total capacity of your iPhone. That’s because the operating system consumes hard drive space. If that’s the case, use this chart to determine the total capacity.

Stated capacity Total capacity
Less than 8GB 8GB
Greater than 8GB but less than 16GB 16GB
Greater than 16GB but less than 32GB 32GB
Greater than 32GB but less than 64GB 64GB
Greater than 64GB but less than 128GB 128GB
Greater than 128GB but less than 256GB 256GB
Greater than 256GB but less than 512GB 512GB

Carrier

You can identify your iPhone carrier from the settings menu.

  • Browse to SETTINGS > GENERAL > ABOUT
  • Find your carrier listed under Network and/or Carrier

If you can’t turn your iPhone on, your carrier name or logo might also be imprinted on the SIM card.
