How to Identify iPad Models

Gazelle appraises the value of your iPad by model name, carrier, storage capacity and condition (but we’ll get to that later). Due to the high degree of cosmetic similarities between WiFi and 3G iPads—certain information found on your iPad and in the menu settings require particular attention to ensure the correct identification of your iPad tablet. The easiest way to find your model number and hard drive capacity is either on the lower backside of the tablet or in the menu settings (Settings>General>About). You may also want to record your FCC ID, IMEI number and Serial number for your own personal records.

Once you have your model number, you can use this guide of cosmetic differences to identify your model name:
