You can now find your SIM number on iPhone using ICCID from the ‘Settings’ page of your iPhone / iPad. Now, tap on the ‘About’ disclosure icon and from the device details page, scroll to the bottom of the page until you find the ICCID option.

Here you can find a two set character string. Sometimes, there may be more number of characters shown in ICCID compared to the characters on the back side of the SIM.  Even though there may be few extra characters the second set with the last six characters helps you more.
