Knowing an iOS devices serial number is useful for a wide variety of reasons, from checking warranty status, determining if it’s eligible for a free repair from Apple, checking unlock status, checking for iCloud Activation Lock, insurance purposes, repairs, registering a phone for a variety of services, amongst other reasons. If you’d rather find the serial number of an iOS device from a computer, you can do that too with iTunes.
As you can see neither of these methods are particularly complex, though unlike finding a serial number of a Mac, you can’t have it spoken to you without enabling separate text to speech settings in iOS. Though the serial number may look totally random, serial numbers are assigned to devices in an orderly way, with details about the devices factory and machine ID, the week of production, the year it was manufactured, the color, and the storage size of the model.

Last time, my wife forgot her iPad at the airport security … When I asked the Lost & found from the airport, they asked me what was the serial nbr of our iPad!!! It doesn’t matter which method you use, if the device is the same, the serial number attached to it will be the same too. You can decipher this information about the device by reading the serial and knowing the format as it applies to the iPhone or iPad, though it does vary per model and per device.
