Why we need Mac Address?
Well this is very interesting question why we need Mac address?
Generally we don’t need this, but if you want to secure your network and only want to allow verified devices to use your network, then using the Mac address of a device you can easily secure a network.
The Mac address you can use in router setting to block or allow a device. This way a limited number or I would say only verified devices will use that network for the communication.

That’s all, now you will get all information and here you will see a WIFI field which show some values. This Wi-Fi field is the Mac address of your device.
You can follow the same steps to find out Mac address on new iPhone and it works with all variants as the iOS comes with backward compatibility options.
