How to find out if an iPhone is regenerated
To check if an iPhone is reconditioned you must read the model number of your device:

- Choose Info
- Read the model number
Usually the number consists of 7 alphanumeric characters followed by a slash and a single letter, such as MC605IP / A.
We need the first letter which in this case is M but which can be one of the following:

- F Reconditioned device

- P Personalized device with an engraving
