iPhone is not only an excellent device for communication, but also a gadget that displays a person's financial situation. Therefore, many resort to buying copies of iPhones, which, although they look like the original, do not stand out for their great performance. And some acquire fakes without knowing it. So how do you test your phone before buying?
The main thing is to break through the serial number of the phone (IMEI). On the official website Apple, you can check the information about the phone by entering this set of characters there (follow the link to the verification service IMEI from Apple). If all is well, the monitor will display information about your specific phone. It is also worth checking this number with the one that is stuffed on the box, phone cover and specified in the settings. They must be the same everywhere.
You should not chase the low cost of the device – if it is very different from the one indicated on the official website Apple or from resellers, most likely the device will turn out to be fake.

It must be remembered that none iPhone had support for two SIM cards, flash drives, TV, and radio. The presence of anything from this list in an apple device betrays a fake in it.
Copies often have a strange amount of internal memory: 1, 2 GB and the like. It shouldn't be like that either. Typically, Apple gadgets are installed 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256 GB of memory, several gigabytes of which are allocated for the system.
Rarely, but skipping copies made in an unusual Apple color scheme. Do not pay attention to blue, yellow, green and other devices. Only plastic iPhone 5c had such colors.
You can even find out whether it is an original phone or a copy by packaging. The real box is one-piece, all information about the device is stuffed on it at the factory, and not glued. Pay attention to the fonts and the icon itself. There is a possibility of finding Easter eggs on your box in the form of an apple, bitten on the other side, or the inscription iPhon. The Chinese have fantasies (they often sin with fakes) more than enough.
Silly copies are those that look like the original iPhones, only they are controlled not by the traditional iOS, but by another system. Android, in this case, will not even be the worst option.
