How can i check if my iphone 8 is real or fake.

The back of the phone only has the 'iphone' name on it. And it does not have any other writing on it. Ive noticed that sometimes there would be other writing below it e.g. design in california (or something like that)

do real iphone 8's have other writing on there? it seems like a genuine phone as i have the box, IMEI, and I checked the about settings. But its just the back of the phone which seems weird, in comparison to some pictures ive seen online

Where did you get it from? From what you've said it seems like a legit iPhone 8 but I really don't know. Maybe ask someone the has an iPhone 8 or go take it to a phone shop and see what they say.

Fake ones seem to be obvious to anyone familiar how knockoffs of popular phones work.

In my case, knockoffs have features and apps with lower qualities than the genuine articles.

Possibly a third-party repair. Connect your iPhone to iTunes on your PC, if it's recognised, it's legit.
