How to Check If Your iPhone is Original in Malaysia

If you are planning to buy an iPhone in Malaysia, you might be wondering how to check if it is original or not. There are many fake iPhones in the market that look very similar to the real ones, but they have poor performance, low quality, and no warranty. You don’t want to waste your money on a fake iPhone, right?

In this article, I will show you 3 easy ways to check if your iPhone is original or not in Malaysia. These methods are based on the official Apple website and the local media sources. You can use these methods to verify any iPhone model, including the latest iPhone 14.

Method 1: Check iPhone Serial Number

The serial number is a unique identifier for your iPhone. You can use it to check the model, purchase date, and warranty status of your iPhone on the official Apple website.

To check your iPhone serial number, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
  3. Tap on “About.”
  4. Look for the “Serial Number” entry in the list. Tap on it to reveal the serial number.

Once you have the serial number, you can proceed to check its authenticity on the Apple website:

  1. Open your web browser and go to the official Apple warranty check page: https://checkcoverage.apple.com/.
  2. Enter your iPhone’s serial number in the provided field.
  3. Complete the CAPTCHA verification to prove you’re not a robot.
  4. Click on “Continue.”

The website will display information about your iPhone, including its warranty status. If it shows that your iPhone is covered by Apple’s limited warranty, it is likely an original device. If it’s not covered, you should be cautious as it may be a fake or unauthorized device.

Method 2: Check iPhone IMEI Number

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is another unique identifier for your iPhone. It serves as a unique ID for your iPhone’s hardware.

To check your iPhone IMEI number, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
  3. Tap on “About.”
  4. Look for the “IMEI” entry in the list. You may need to scroll down to see it.

Once you have the IMEI number, you can proceed to check its authenticity on the Apple website using the same method as in Method 1.

Method 3: Check iPhone Model Number

The model number is another way to identify your iPhone. It tells you where your iPhone was made for and whether it is new, refurbished, replaced, or personalized.

To check your iPhone model number, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
  3. Tap on “About.”
  4. Look for the “Model” or “Model Number” entry in the list.

The model number will typically start with a letter followed by a series of numbers and/or letters. For example, “A2345.”

To decipher the model number and determine if it’s an original iPhone made for Malaysia, you can use Apple’s official “Check iPhone Model” tool: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201608.

Enter the model number you found on your iPhone, and the tool will provide information about the device, including its compatibility and region.

Conclusion

These three methods should help you determine whether your iPhone is original or not in Malaysia. Always verify the authenticity of an iPhone before making a purchase, especially if you’re buying it from a third-party seller or an unofficial source. Buying an original iPhone ensures you receive the genuine product with the full backing of Apple’s warranty and support.
