UDID is Unique Device ID Number i.e. Apple’s original unique device ID number which consisted of a 40-digit sequence of letters and numbers. These numbers were deprecated around August 2012 due to privacy concerns around the ability to tie UDID information to a consumer’s Personally Identifiable Information (PII). On May 1, 2013 Apple started to reject any application that leveraged this unique device identifier.
