Spotting a Fake iPhone 11

Be warned that there are many fake devices out there and while clones or fakes are becoming increasingly more popular you can still tell the difference.

A little common sense goes a long way with these devices and you always have to remember that there is no one single give away when looking at a fake. As they are made by many different manufacturers that don’t subscribe to a single design philosophy.

There aim is usually to create a convincing copy for as cheap as possible that’s as close to real thing. Clones are sometimes produced before a official release based on rumors or after the official release.

What to looking out for when looking for a Fake iPhone 11?

You want to look out for the following signs:

1.Packaging: Always look for inconsistencies in packaging to the official retail packaging from Apple. If you are seeing a unofficial color of box art then you most likely have a fake.

Be sure to look for accessories, information and incorrect information that may be on the box.

2.Button Placement and Logos: Make sure all buttons are in the correct place as with the official build from Apple. I find that on Fake logos maybe be off in placement being too high or lower than they should be.

3.Android OS skinned as iOS: Usually the operating system on the clones is Android made to look like Apples operating system. If at boot up for example you are seeing starting or loading apps screen that usually on Android its definitely a clone.

Despite best efforts sometimes clones try to hide it elements of Android, but they still shine through and as you may know there are no Android OS Elements on Apple devices.

4.Font type: Check the font being used, sometimes the font is off on the fakes compared to the Font used by Apple.

5.Missing Features: Look out for missing features such as Dark Mode and other key features. Gesture control also does not work in most cases.

6.Fake Settings: Look out for Fake settings that don’t open or operate like they should. Some settings wont open when you click them so watch out for that in settings.

7.Face ID: face ID does not work or its Fake. Usually it may pretend to scan your face weather or not you move it. It may not work when you attempt to unlock your device.

8.Camera Quality: Camera quality on the fakes is pretty bad and in some cases you can see the pixels. This is usually evident in secondary camera such as the front facing ones and even the main Camera.

Details is lacking especially on a zoomed object at a descent distance away from the camera. The real iPhone 11 Camera is way higher quality.Images are pixelated and not sharp.

9.Open it Up:If you can Open it up the internals are off and this is usually a sure fire way to 100% tell the Fake from the real deal. The Internals are all wrong.

10. Somethings off: Keep looking over the device and if you can find something really off its definitely a fake. These devices cost thousands of dollars and are build really well.

Also if the price is too good to be true then its definitely or most likely a fake. so exercise common sense.
