Apple doesn’t allow you to buy iPhone 6S by opening the box package. You will have to purchase it as sealed pack and this is where fake iPhone manufacturers cheats you. While you purchase the phone, do checkout packaging of the box as it gives you an early clue. The genuine iPhone 6S Plus or iPhone 6S has phone photo with live wallpaper on it. The clone iPhone 6S handset will not have it. Also check all sides of iPhone 6S box packaging before buying it from any seller.
Price plays an important factor. The iPhone 6S is sold at nothing less than $ 649 for the 16 GB model, check iPhone 6S price. So any one offering buy one get one free or any huge discounted iPhone 6S, then definitely its fraud unless he is selling damaged or replaced handsets.
To spot fake iPhone 6S/6S Plus, just open App Store on your device. Cloned handset will open up Google Play Store instead of Apple’s App Store. Counterfeit iPhone model identified.
Try open Maps on your iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus. It will open Google Maps instead of Apple Maps.
Check Apple Logo
Apple logo on the back of the device is also another sign.
Check LED flashlight Near Camera
LED flashlight near the camera section is also a major differentiation. Original Apple phone flashlight will glow in bright White color while the fake models will give out yellowish shade with low-brightness.
If you are still unable to make a difference, checkout the serial number provider and visit Apple.com/warranty to verify the warranty coverage of your device. If its original you will have one year of service coverage officially from Apple from the day you have purchased iPhone.
