How to find your Device ID (UUID) for iOS Development
Here's how to find your Device ID (UUID) using Homebrew, command line or iTunes.
If you plan to develop an iPhone or iPad app, you will first need to register your device ID to the Apple Developer Portal. Sadly, this process isn't as simple as it looks, so here are four different ways to get your UUID.
Here's an example of where you will need to input your device ID, also known as your Universal Unique Identifier.
Option 1 - iTunes
If you prefer GUI interfaces, iTunes will do the trick. Plugin your phone and go to "Summary." This isn't obvious at all, but if you tap the invisible field (look at the red box), you will switch between different serial numbers. You will find one titled "UUID."
Option 2 - Homebrew
I'm not a fan of iTunes, so here's an approach using a Homebrew plugin if you're not familiar with Homebrew, read this article.
I wish there were an app made by Mozilla, EFF, Apache, or some other foundation that I could reliably trust will treat my information as ephemeral data not store it somewhere or place it at risk. Unfortunately, I cannot. Therefore, if you choose to use something like What's My UDID, you're using it at your risk.
