Apple iPhone 5


Yes, they make fake iPhones! They are all over the internet and of course, they are far inferior to the real ones. Make sure the one you are buying, or have already purchased, passes the checks below.

Make sure SIRI works. The Siri application can only be launched to an original iPhone. The fake will not run it.

Next, Connect to iTunes. If you connect it to iTunes and it doesn't show anything or you're receiving an error, it means iTunes does not recognize your phone. It's a fake.

On the phone, go to "Settings," then choose "General," and then click on "About." This will give you the serial number. You can then access the Apple website, where you can enter your iPhone serial number to see if it is a real iPhone.

Once there, just enter the serial number. If it is undetected, then your phone is a clone.
