Your iPad’s IP address is one of the most important bits of information about your device. It’s how the internet identifies your iPad, and is usually assigned arbitrarily by your router or DHCP.
However, in some cases, an IP address can be a permanent non-changing number manually assigned by an administrator.
Regardless of how it is assigned, the IP address is a series of numbers, e.g. 123.56.447.9.
Your web-surfing habits (from shopping to searching to emailing) are all connected to your IP address. To troubleshoot network issues, you may need your IP address, and there are other uses for your IP address as well.
Here’s how to find your iPad’s IP address.
