SIM card ICCID on Apple iPhone 14
Every cellular device needs a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) to identify itself on a mobile network. Modern smartphones already support the traditional plastic SIM (physical card) and the newly embedded SIM (eSIM technology). Both of these SIMs are assigned with a unique number called an ICCID.
ICCID stands for Integrated Circuit Card Identifier. It is typically made up of a 18-22 digit code that’s stored inside the SIM card (digitally) and sometimes printed on it (physical SIM card slot). The latter requires removing of the SIM card from the SIM tray.
Every SIM card has a unique serial number or ICCID that identifies the SIM hardware (physical SIM cards) out of the rest.
The ICCID format typically consists of the constant number 89 that identifies the telecoms industry, country code (MCC), SIM card issuer identifier, the SIM number or account ID, checksum and an extra digit.
The most obvious way of finding the SIM card number or ICCID is to remove the SIM card from your iPhone SIM tray and then locate the printed ICCID.
Alternatively, you can find this information straight from the About menu on your iPhone’s settings.
Depicted below is a step by step walkthrough on how to locate the SIM number or ICCID on the new iPhone 14. Feel free to refer to these steps if ever you need help getting your SIM card number.
