For some reason, Apple has made it harder to find the unique device ID (UDID) of the iPhone XR and the iPhone XS. This will create a problem for developers who require the UDID to register their device in the Apple developer portal.
To register a device in the Apple developer portal, one must enter the UDID of their iPhone to install iOS beta updates and test the iPhone applications. Before the iPhone XS and the iPhone XR, one could use iTunes to simply obtain the UDID of their device. However, for some strange reason, this is no longer possible with the new 2018 iPhone.
While there is a way to get the UDID of the iPhone XR, the process is not as simple as it should be especially on a Mac. But do not worry, we are here to help you. Simply follow these steps . With regards to the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, you can find the steps to get the UDID easily in this simple guide.
