Most iPhones share a similar design, so it's not always easy to know which model you have. This information is essential when shopping for accessories such as enclosures or ask Apple for technical support. Here's how to find the smartphone in your pocket.

To start, launch the "Settings" application. If you can not find the application, from the home screen, slide down on the phone screen and use Spotlight to search for "Settings."
