Apple has launched a tool that allows you to check if the terminal you are going to acquire has been previously blocked or not by the real owner.
To do this, you will only need the IMEI or the serial number of the iOS device that you are going to purchase. As soon as you enter it on the web that Apple has specifically enabled for this purpose, you will be able to know if the phone has the “Activation Lock” on in a matter of seconds. In this way, for all those who wish to acquire a second-hand iPhone, they will be able to know with total certainty if the person who claims to be the owner is really it.
Any precaution is little, and more if we take into account the number of iPhone terminals that are stolen every day in the world. Of course, to check it, you will need that before buying the terminal, the seller is willing to reveal the serial number of the device, although if it refuses, it is all the more reason to be suspicious.
