iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch: Find MAC Address

Question: Where can I find the MAC Address for my Apple iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad?

1. Open the Settings app.

iPod Touch Settings icon

2. Select General.

iOS General Settings option

3. Choose About.

iOS About selection

4. Scroll down and Wi-Fi Address will become visible and be displayed in a format like “A1:2B:3C:4D:5:E:6F “. That is the MAC Address. You’ll notice the Bluetooth address is the same value.

    You are great, I just change the language from Spanish to English and the MAC address was showed up.

    geoff, change to the default font and you will be able to see it. Funny they have never tested on another font isn’t ?

    Thanks…it’s hard to believe I spent hours on the net to include the Itouch manual and couldn’t find this. Thanks again.

    Thanks! This is perfect. Googled the question and got your answer. Much better than Apple’s own documentation.

    Thanks so much! Dad’s obsessed about the security of our router(he has turned macadress filtering on) but with your greatly appreciated help, I’m going ro be able to connect to it w/o problems!!! yay! :)

    This was exactly what I was looking for. This should have been more clearly explained in the online IPOD user manual. Apple should pay you to write their manuals.

    Works like a charm. Added iPod Touch to MAC Address filter list of router; added network name and WEP password and started surfing the ‘Net in no time!!!

    Thanks, I should have turned to the Web earlier….would have saved me a lot of time.
    It’s about time apple starts to provide the indispensable user manual with their expensive gadgets, instead of flyers in which they state the obvious marketing blabla

    cyberhack, I also found the mac address for ipod touch but was not complete, in my case this was because the ipod had a different language than english. to solve it I just changed temporarily the language to english (settings, international, language) and that was it. the mac address shows itself complete.

    I LOVE YOU!!!

    I found the Wi-Fi Address but I can not see the whole address. I see like 14:4d:45:32:… How I can see the whole Wi-Fi Address?
