Huh? Meet at Apple store, go in and wait and get them to verity? If I’m the seller I will rather sell cheaper to someone that can deal at my convenience. See, check, pay, take money.

Check for serial number and imei number.

Huh? Now still got fake iPhone meh??

You can go Apple website to check for IMEI.

https://checkcoverage.apple.com/

Brand new or what can check if the box is sealed. If not sealed, then check the phone. Turn on, see if can activate or not.

If can activate means new.
If cannot activate means fake.
If there is no activation process means it has already been activated and used.

I don't think there is a fake iPhone. I think you can go to the store to validate just to make sure its not stolen that's all. No other devices can run iOS, and the only thing you need to validate is the size of the storage and model by going into the settings, "About" and "iPhone Storage" to view the model and storage size.

I suspect he ah Beng shop employee so have access to a lot of phones to take photo sometime to show and prove he has it.

Then cannot find he kope to prove he have it.

That’s why sometime he take some “time” before he show his collections

You’d be surprise the amount of fake devices out there. Also, how closely they resemble the original devices from hardware to software.

All the fake iOS looks and feel are base on android.
