It is sometimes very hard to check whether your phone is jailbroken, and advanced methods of entering the file system and examining files is used. For suspicions about your device being jailbroken, search for applications such as Cydia, Icy, Absinthe, and Installer. However, it is possible to hide these applications. Check if some stock applications are missing (Mail, Safari, Game Center, Music, Photos, Camera, and other applications, depending on your iOS version). If they are, then your phone is jailbroken.

Are there fake iPhones in form of Android?

I bought a brand new iPhone 6s plus in Dubai just last week. Exactly iPhone shape and logo, with IMEI numbers and iPhone specifications. But a technician I asked (back home in Nigeria) to set up the phone for me today just told me it is a fake, a mere Android. He even touched one or two buttons on the phone and brought out Android signs. I will appreciate an explanation for this
