Check out

www.libimobiledevice.org

it allows communication with the device via console-.
the command you want is "ideviceinfo -s"

Since there are installation instructions on the web, i think this will make a good starting point )

Yes. Connect the device to a Windows machine that has never had iTunes installed. It will create a virtual device in 'Computer' called Apple Camera (or something similar). You can right click Properties on this virtual device within Computer and it will give you the iOS version and SN of the device.

This WILL NOT work if the computer you are connecting the iPhone to has iTunes installed.

If you use Cellebrite Physical Analyzer
Open Cellebrite Physical Analyzer, click on the "Extract" menu, and click iOS Extraction. Once in the extraction screen, select Advanced Logical, plug the phone in to your computer with the Cellebrite cable, and click next. It will say the phone is locked and to needs to be unlocked to proceed, but on that same screen it will tell you the iOS version on the phone.

All the major mobile forensic programs show this info when trying to create a physical dump of the phone.

I use Xcode.

From the Window menu, select Devices and the phone should be listed on the left hand pane. You'll not only get iOS version, but name, model and the UUID.

The problem I have encountered is not being able to take the device out of the Faraday box because you can't place it into airplane mode and hook it up to your machine.

Which faraday box are you using?

Ones like this have a USB pass-through which enables you to connect the device to a PC through the box. Might be worth investing in it if this is something you run up against frequently.
