7 Ways To Spot Fake Apple Accessories on Amazon
7 Ways To Spot Fake Apple Accessories on Amazon

A recent undercover sting operation conducted by Apple showed that around 90 percent of goods marked as ‘original’ Apple products on Amazon were actually counterfeit.

Here are 7 ways to spot fake Apple accessories on Amazon

  1. It’s common knowledge that Apple products are expensive, so if you come across an ‘Apple’ product that is significantly cheaper, it’s likely a fake.
  2. Original Apple products will be certified with a ‘Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad logo’ which would be missing on counterfeit products.
  3. Original cables will have a marking Designed by Apple in California followed by either ‘Assembled in China’, ‘Assembled in Vietnam’ or ‘Indústria Brasileira’ and will then show a 12-digit serial number. If any of these components are missing, you are probably dealing with a fake.
  4. If there are any typing errors in any of the labels, you have a fake.
  5. Minor differences can be seen in the physical hardware which you can verify on Apple’s official website before using a product if you suspect the product is fake.
  6. Check out the seller’s profile, what comments people have for the seller and what other products are sold.
  7. What are the customer reviews of the product? A few reviews may be ‘planted’ but if you go through a large number of reviews you can get a better idea of the authenticity of the product.
