Select “About device”.

Find the line “Serial number”. It contains the serial number of the iPhone.

The serial number was obtained, it remains only to check it on the Apple website.

? What does the iPhone check by name give??

The status of the iPhone is determined: stolen or not. The main thing that the IMEI check shows is the status of the device. If the iPhone is lost or stolen by its real owner, then the check will warn about this. There is no need to buy an iPhone that is reported lost or stolen. Only if for spare parts.

The result of iPhone punching by IMEI. We see that the smartphone is already without a guarantee, but it has not been stolen or lost

The country of purchase is determined. The IMEI identifies the exact model number of the iPhone. It is necessary in order to check which country the smartphone is intended for sale in.

Model number lets you know where the iPhone is from

The status of Find iPhone is shown. Also, the IMEI check allows you to find out if the “Find iPhone” function is enabled on the iPhone right now. If it is enabled, then the seller must be asked to sign out of his iCloud account.

How to check iPhone by IMEI

IMEI is a unique international identifier for mobile equipment. This 15-digit number must match within the same set. We check:

  • IMEI on the back case
  • IMEI in “Settings. General. About this device”
  • IMEI on request #
  • IMEI on the SIM-card tray (not relevant for iPhone SE and “fives”)
  • IMEI on the box (if any)

The box worries us last. If everything matches, except for her, it’s okay, just the seller brought the device in non-original packaging. Another question: why did he not warn you about this? This is another reason to double-check everything.

How to check iPhone on Apple website

In the same place, in “Settings. General. About this device”, the serial number is written. You can use it too. Go to the Apple website and check the status of the device.

This is how you can understand that this is not a Frankenstein with a conventional 6s body and a six-piece filling. The page will show the model of the device, the date of the end of the limited warranty and information about the date of purchase.

Required. Test call

Don’t miss this moment: you need to insert your SIM card and make a test call to your friend’s number. This is how we kill two birds with one stone; we check the operation of the spoken speaker and the cellular communication module.

In the extreme, if there is no SIM card at hand, then you can dial 112, listen to the robot answering machine, and then reset without waiting for the connection. Better than nothing.

Classic. Battery status

It is clear that when buying a smartphone from your hands, you will have to endure all the jumps of a shabby battery. But wear on a one- to two-year battery is negligible.

Typically, an iPhone will go through up to 500 charge cycles at least. At the same time, the loss of battery capacity is not felt. Do not think, the device continues to work even after, it is just that the “no plug” time is shortened.

The number of full charge cycles can be checked using the free coconutBattery utility. If you are too lazy to take a laptop with you, you should discuss with the seller in advance the possibility of installing the corresponding utility on the iPhone. Here, Battery Life, for example.

Plus, in the latest iOS, it became possible to see the percentage of battery wear in the settings. Saves time.

The easiest. Is he untied

A smartphone can pass any test brilliantly, but if the seller finds it difficult to turn off Find iPhone. say goodbye, nothing will work.

For those who are not in the subject: this tightly ties the iPhone to the owner of the Apple ID, and, in fact, gives him the keys to manage the device. For example, he can remotely lock your newly purchased iPhone and demand money to unlock it. He will know where you are. What a pleasure.

The desired item is hidden in the settings, in the “iCloud” section, but it is much easier to drive “Find iPhone” in the same place in the search.

Checking the camera and microphone

Make sure there is no debris or condensation in the camera‘s eye. Check your flash, take a couple of photos and videos. There should be no artifacts on the frames. Do not forget to play the captured video with sound. this is how the rear microphone is checked.

It is also easy to check the microphone in the standard Dictaphone application. Leave a couple of recordings and listen to them. There should be no extraneous noise.

Exploring the screen

The display is a treasure trove of weaknesses. What you need to pay attention to.

Press the screen in different places with little force. There should not be anything crunching, creaking or dangling here. Otherwise, the smartphone was dropped or opened.

The backlight should be uniform. Open an image with a white background and black and notice the glow around the edges. There should be no obvious spots and too bright places. If there are no such images, open any application with a suitable background. Well, or take a photo, for example.

There should be no yellow spots on the screen. Those that appear after the smartphone overheats. The fact is that under the influence of temperature, the glue between the touchscreen and the display changes color. Similar jambs appear if the device is constantly squeezed, for example, held in the back of jeans and sat on hard surfaces.

With the same set of pictures we check for stripes and broken pixels.


This service allows you to check how high-quality the hardware of the tested smartphone is. as a rule, “underground” manufacturers use the lowest-grade components. CNDeepInfo service is universal and suitable for checking not only iPhones, but also gadgets of other brands.

Enter the IMEI number in the window and click the “Check” button. The result of the check will consist of several parts. First part. certificate.

The certificate confirms that the Apple iPhone is not stolen or lost by the original owner.

If you want to know more about what information the certificate gives, click on the round button with the letter “i”. in the picture it is circled in red.

A certificate in the form of a banner can be inserted into other resources. Click the button “HTML-code to embed on sites and forums”, and you will have access to all kinds of links and codes:

For example, a link to an image of a certificate can be placed by an iPhone seller in an advertisement for a sale. this will increase the level of trust of potential buyers.

The second block. “IMEI decryption”.

From this block it becomes clear that the whole IMEY can be divided into 3 components:

    TAC number. describes the model and origin of the phone (8 first digits) Sequential number of the gadget. is unique for each device (6 subsequent digits) Check digit. the 15th digit that allows you to check the correctness of all the previous ones. The check digit is calculated using the “Moon” aLGorithm. you can learn more about this aLGorithm here.

There are no two phones with the same IMEI numbers.

The third block. “Detailed information”.

Alas, detailed information is not available during a free check. after clicking on the “Get information” button, you will be faced with an offer to pay.

If you scroll down the page with the results of the check, you will find the button “Add to the list of lost or stolen”.

If you lose the gadget, you should use this particular button. this way you complicate the task of selling the phone for the attacker.

How to check if iPhone is original or not by IMEI?

Check for originality is also carried out through the IMEY iPhone. You can find out the IMEI number in several ways:

Find on the packaging with a barcode. IMEI is lower than the serial number.

Through the “Settings” of the gadget. The path that the user needs to go through. “Settings”. “General”. “About this device”.

Through a combination. It is enough to dial # and the IMEI number will appear on the screen.

IMEY consists of 15 digits. alphabetic characters do not occur.

It is possible to check the authenticity of the gadget by IMEI using two services:

How to check iPhone for authenticity?

How to check an iPhone for authenticity on the Apple website?

This method is the most suitable, because to use it you don’t even need to print the box and take out the device itself. Follow the instructions:

Look for the serial number of the device on the package. it should be located on the back of the box between the IMEI and the Part No. Serial number consists of 11 or 12 characters (numbers and letters).

If the iPhone is printed and activated, check the “serial numbers” on the package and in the device settings (path “Settings”. “General”. “About this device”).

Go to the website and in the upper right corner select the “Support” tab.

Scroll down and find the Warranty & Repair section. Here you need to follow the link “Check warranty status”.

Enter the serial number of the device in the special window, then enter the captcha code.

After entering the data, click “Continue”. If you entered the number incorrectly, the system will display the following message:

Recheck the serial number. If there are no errors, then the iPhone is “gray”, and you need to refuse to buy it.

After correctly entering the “serial” of the activated iPhone, you will see the following screen:

Pay attention to the checkmark in the green field opposite the item “Actual date of purchase”. it is this that confirms that the gadget is original. The rest of the points are devoted to the international warranty for the device, which has a duration of 1 year from the date of purchase, and the right to a free consultation by phone. the owner of the iPhone can exercise this right within 3 months. As you can see, using the service, you can establish not only the authenticity of the device, but also the approximate period of use of the gadget (more than 3 months, more than a year). In our case, the warranty has already expired, so the system offers only paid appeal.

If the iPhone is not yet activated, you will see an exclamation point in the yellow box and the caption “You must confirm the date of purchase of the product.”.

The very fact that the service found this device in the database, and did not give an error, confirms the originality of the gadget.

Please note: if the serial number of the gadget begins with the combination “5K”, then you are looking at an iPhone of the Refurbished category, that is, refurbished by the manufacturer or seller. Refurbished iPhone cannot be called completely new, despite the fact that the repair is usually of high quality and that Apple gives a full guarantee for such a device.

International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI).

Actually, the site of the international identifier itself is available at To check, you need to enter a 15-digit number in the “Enter IMEI” window.

After entering the number, press “Check”. IPhone information appears on the screen.

If this information is not enough for you, click the “Read” button. a full description of the device’s functionality will appear, accompanied by a photo and 3D animation.

If the iPhone is found in the database by the IMEY number, the gadget is original.

Important: when registering on the website through your mailbox, check the “Spam” folder. most likely, a letter with a proposal to activate your account will be there.

It is better to check the iPhone by serial number and IMEI if you buy a sealed gadget. the seller is unlikely to agree to open the package just for you to look at the smartphone. But when buying an iPhone from hands without a box and documents, it is very important to pay attention to visual inspection. the typical signs of Chinese counterfeits are described here.

How to check if you bought a new iPhone? Method 1

Apple has a Service and Support Eligibility section on Apple’s website that lets you quickly and effortlessly verify that the iPhone you’re buying hasn’t actually been used before. All the user needs to know to work with the service is the serial number of the device. For activated gadgets, this number can be found in the “Settings”, in the “General” section, the menu item “About this device”. In the event that the smartphone meets the user with a start-up welcome screen, his serial code can be found by pressing the “i” button in the lower right corner.

In addition, the serial number of the iPhone can be found on a label located on the back of the original box.

So, to check your iPhone, follow these steps:

one. Go to the Check Service and Support Eligibility section of the Apple website.

2. Enter the serial number of the iPhone in the appropriate field (how to find the serial number), enter the code shown in the picture and click Continue.

Your iPhone serial number NEVER contains the letter “O” (uses the number “0” (zero).

3. If, when checking a supposedly new iPhone (or an officially restored (ref, refurbished) Apple), the message “Activate your device” appears, then this really confirms that the smartphone had no history and is indeed new.

After activation, the Right to Service and Support service will display (perhaps not immediately, but within 24 hours) the estimated expiration date of the Right to Service and Repair, which is determined by adding 365 days to the activation day. In other words, to find out the date of the first activation, subtract exactly 1 year from the calculated date.

NOTE: The data on the Apple server may not change immediately, it usually happens in the interval from 1 minute to 12 hours.

How to check if you bought a new iPhone (activated or not)?

You have been sold an iPhone in a sealed box and the seller assures that it is new. Before you can start using your new Apple smartphone, you need to activate it. The activation procedure involves connecting a smartphone with an inserted SIM card to Apple’s activation servers. To do this, you just need to connect to Wi-Fi or use cellular data.

And only after the iPhone owner receives confirmation of activation, he will be able to use his device.

Thus, if, when the smartphone is first turned on, the user immediately goes to the home screen, bypassing the welcome, activation and settings screens, then it has already been used. At the same time, if after the first start-up of the iPhone, the welcome screen appeared. this does not mean that the gadget was not used. The fact is that a screen with the word “Hello” in different languages โ€‹โ€‹of the world appears every time the iPhone is reset to factory settings or after the iOS restore procedure on the computer. In other words, even unpacking the sealed box and the appearance of the welcome screen when you turn on the purchased iPhone does not guarantee that the smartphone is new.

How to check if you bought a new iPhone? Method 2

Open the Settings app and follow the path: General โ†’ About this device.

In the window that appears, open the “Limited Warranty”.

The estimated expiration date of the Right to Service and Repair, which is determined by adding 365 days to the activation day, will appear here (perhaps not immediately, but within a day). In other words, to find out the date of the first activation, subtract exactly 1 year from the calculated date.

If the activation date that you carried out differs from the one specified in the service “Checking the eligibility for service and support”, then you can safely file a claim with the seller. the smartphone was activated earlier, ie. unfortunately, you are not the first owner of this iPhone.

Let’s take a real life example. In the post-Soviet space, it is often used to sell gray (illegally imported) activated iPhones under the guise of new ones. How does this happen? New locked (tied to a mobile operator) iPhones are sold, for example, in the United States, at a fairly low price. They are bought by “businessmen” for the purpose of subsequent unlocking (decoupling from the operator) for a fee.

However, often in order to unlock such an iPhone, in most cases, its box must be unpacked, software restored and repacked. By and large, this is a new phone (in fact, it was not used), identical to the one purchased from an official reseller, however, the date of its first activation will not correspond to the date of activation by the buyer, since it has already been produced earlier. Naturally, the service and support period of such a phone will be less than a year.
