How to Find Your iPhone's IP Address

  Matt Cone       January 6, 2021      Tutorials iPhone Network


Your iPhone is assigned something called an IP address when it connects to a Wi-Fi network. Other devices that are connected to the same Wi-Fi network can use this unique identifier to transfer information to and from your iPhone. If this sounds confusing, it might help to think of an IP address as your iPhone’s home address. Just like physical mail, which is routed to your home via a unique address, digital information is routed to your iPhone using an IP address.

There may be certain situations when you’ll need to find your iPhone’s IP address. Here’s how to find your iPhone’s IP address:

  1. From the home screen, tap Settings.

  2. Tap Wi-Fi. The screen shown below appears.

  3. Locate the connected Wi-Fi network, and then tap the blue arrow next to the network name. The window shown below appears.

  4. Your iPhone’s current IP address for the selected Wi-Fi network is displayed at the top of the window, as shown above. If your iPhone is connected to an IPv6-enabled network, your iPhone is also assigned one or more IPv6 IP addresses. Tap IP Address in the IPv6 Address section to view those IP addresses.

Congratulations! You have successfully found your iPhone’s IP address.
