The best way to determine whether your iPhone 6 is a fake or an original is to use the iTunes program from your computer. Just plug your new phone into any computer running iTunes. If iTunes recognizes your device, it's a genuine phone. If not it's probably a clone.

I am looking to buy I phone 5S or 5c

but some of the friends are offered this phone at cheap price I confused how can iPhone they sold at cheap price I ask them is this used for then they said its a original please guide me

It is possible that the phone is cheap and original if it has been locked, which means that it allows to use SIM cards from only one carrier, unlocked, and resold. If they say, "No" to your question about its being used, then it is probably fake or locked to one carrier. To check whether you or your friends are sold a real iPhone:

  • look at the font on the back of the phone. The fake one might be slightly thicker. It is really hard to see it but possible. The 5S is on the right in the picture below (5c is on the left if you need one for reference) has the reference thickness of the font.

    ;
  • look at the flash. It must look exactly like in the picture. There must be 2 separate LEDs for 5S (for the 5c reference, look at the phone above to the left). Examine the shape of the camera.

  • other methods include checking the seller's eBay profile for history, the number of sales, and overall rating and asking for the IMEI number of the phone. That can be entered on the Apple Check Your Service and Support Coverage web page to see if the phone is fake.

Hi, is it worth buying the refurbished iPhone over the original ones?

In terms of durability, long use, and cost, is the refurbished iPhone better or the brand new original ones? Thank you

You cannot tell the difference between the refurbished and new iPhone devices as they have the same durability and longevity. The only difference between the refurbished and new iPhone devices is the cost (refurbished are cheaper). Refurbished phones are just used phones that have all-new parts that might have been regarded as used or faulty in any manner.
