Apple is making it difficult for counterfeit manufacturers to sell counterfeit iPhone 15. The retail boxes of the new iPhone 15, as well as the iPhone 15 Pro, come with a new security that proves the authenticity of the device. This is a new ultraviolet light-enabled logo that will help customers verify that the iPhone 15 unit they are purchasing is genuine. This is an important security measure because there are a lot of scams involving Apple devices, including the iPhone.
An X user posted a video on the social media platform to show how the new UV labels on the iPhone 15 retail box work. The boxes have holograms on them, which glow when exposed to UV light.
It's a small detail that you might overlook, but if you're concerned about whether the iPhone 15 unit you're buying is genuine, carry a UV light with you. It is a bit difficult for counterfeit sellers to replicate the same UV light-based hologram on iPhone 15 boxes.
How to identify real and fake iPhones:
1. Check the retail box carefully for any spelling mistakes, changes in Apple fonts and colors, and misprinted details.
2. Ask the shop or store owner to show you at least two more retail boxes.
3. If possible, unbox the iPhone 15 right in front of the seller after purchasing the device so that its IMEI and serial number can be matched with the text printed on the box.
