    You can also check if a phone you find is stolen or not. https://stolenphonechecker.org/spc/consumer

    My iPad has ingraving which is termed personalized, but had the model identifier “M”. According to the article it should be “P” instead of M.

    If your Part Number starts with 3A it was a Demo Unit from a Store

    I have the same comment as Pat. My iPad is engraved, but is marked M.

    That wasn’t informative. (Said in no way’s Whitney pitch)

    It was actually very informative, never knew this about iDevices. More great intel from OSX Daily. The last site for actual MacOS and iOS knowledge without all the fluff. Thanks for a great website.

    Is there a way to tell whether a replacement is new or refurbished?

    Rubbish. I’ve looked on my old iphone which was purchased ‘’almost new’’ from Vodafone and has the initial M like brand new. It wasn’t brand new for sure because of the faults it had. At least I’ve paid the right price for it.

    Seems questionable.

    How does the iPhone’s firmware know to update itself if someone replaces a cracked screen?

    How does the phone’s firmware know to update itself if someone sells their iPhone.

    I may be that the person in an Apple store performs a tweak on the iPhone appropriately, but if I were to sell my iPhone to someone else, how would that be recorded?
