How to find my iPhone IP address

What is IP address: An IP address is a unique numerical identifier that tells your computer/smart device where other computers/smart devices are located on the network, and vise versa. IP address appear in the form of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, though each grouping can be as short as a single digit.

Where to look up my iPhone IP address: The iPhone is a multifunctional smart phone device that, in addition to making phone calls, allows users to browse the Internet, send email, download applications, listen to music and take pictures. When connected to the Internet, the iPhone is assigned an Internet Protocol, or IP, address. An IP address is used to identify different machines that are connected to a network. You can find the IP address on your iPhone by examining the “Settings” menu:

  • Tap the “Wi-Fi” option in the “Settings” menu. Note that your iPhone must be connected to the Internet to have an IP address. If you are not connected to the Internet, tap one of the available networks listed under “Choose a Network” and connect to it.
  • Click the blue arrow icon adjacent to the name of the network your iPhone is connected to. Your IP address is shown as the first item in the list.

With DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) tab, you might see a list like (as an example, yours may be different):

  • IP Address                      192.168.0.104
  • Subnet Mask                  255.255.255.0
  • Router                             192.168.0.1
  • DNS                                  192.168.0.1
  • Search Domains
  • Client ID

Here 192.168.0.104 is the example IP address.
