Reincubate DeviceIdentifier API

Manipulate & enrich Apple & iOS model, serial, IMEI, ICCID, MEID, TAC data and more.

What does DeviceIdentifier do?

Reincubate's DeviceIdentifier API is an invaluable tool for inventory and management of Apple devices, be they iOS, macOS or tvOS. It enables users to rapidly identify and learn more about their devices, given a wide range of identifiers.

We describe how how the API is used by iPhone Backup Extractor, and it can be used to augment your own data and inventory, too. The API is designed to be easy to integrate with, for developers of all levels.

We've included a simple tool to testing out the API below, but you can also see an example request, or read the developer documentation.

The API provides a subset of data without a token and can be used non-commercially, subject to a rate-limit per IP. If you have signed up for a token, you can enter it below to see fuller responses.

Metadata enrichment

These demonstrate enrichment and anonymisation of metadata. The fields are pre-filled with examples, but you can change these.

Metadata identification

This demonstrates identification of metadata. Try a few examples: iPhone5,3, A1784, C8QH6T96DPNG, or 013554006297015.

API response

The API's response to your queries will be shown below.

Integration is easy

We've published Open Source client libraries for the API on GitHub for Python and .NET.
