The truth is most people go about with fake iPhones thinking they got an original iPhone. I'm gonna explain some simple ways you can spot a fake iPhone should in case you want to buy a fairly used one.
So should you be sitting on your own and some guy pops up with an insanely cheap iPhone, please check properly else you end up buying chinco, like my Nigerian friends call it or even a replica.
So How do I check if my iPhone is fake:
1. Check the Operating System and Weight of the iPhone you are about to buy:
When you want to get a fairly used iPhone The first thing you have to check to know if the iPhone is fake or not is its operating system. If the smartphone is running an OS that does not resemble the iOS then it is a dead give away that the iPhone is a fake. Second you should check the weight of the iPhone, it should be relatively heavy, if not run!!
2. 3D Touch Feature:
One of the most important if not the most important thing to check out for on latest iPhones is the 3Dimensional Touch. This check can tell you all alone if you are about to buy a fake iPhone or perhaps original.
3. Check for Siri:
Siri is one of the most important feature on the iPhone latest iPhones beginning from 6S and iPhone 6S Plus and it will be lacking in the fake iPhone. Siri is the voice reorganization digital assistant of yours to help you use your iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus with simple voice commands.
4. Look for the official Apple logo:
Do not overestimate this when buying a refurbished or fairly used iPhone..The first and most common thing customers do not realize is that an original iPhone always contain the official logo of its manufacturer, Apple Inc. It is normally found at the back of the body.
5. Pentalobe Screws:
To identify the fake iPhone, the second thing to check is its screws. Apple uses the Penta lobe screws in the original iPhone whereas the fake iPhone has normal cross screws. Here is an image of the Pentalobe screws and where they are located on the iPhone…
