Getting your iOS device UDID

Every iOS device has anumber associated with it, known as a UDID (Unique Device ID). A 40-digit sequence like so: 0e83ff56a12a9cf0c7290cbb08ab6752181fb54b

We need it, because Apple requires test devices to be registered into their system, or the code won't run on them.

With iTunes

  • Open iTunes on your computer.
  • Plug in your device.
  • Click its name under the devices list.
  • On Summary, find the text that says Serial Number. Click it. It should change to say Identifier (UDID).
  • Select Copy from the Edit menu, paste into your project discussion board.
