How to know if an iPhone is stolen or not from the person who sells it:
For this, the checks must be done physically. It is not worth making them remotely, although if the seller is the true owner, they could make them and send them to you, although, personally, in this type of purchase I prefer to do them in person.
At iPhone you want to buy and do the following:
- Turn on the device and slide the unlock button to obviously unlock it.
- If a lock screen with a code appears, it means that the content of the device has not been erased. Ask whoever wants to sell it to you to delete its content by following the steps that we tell you in this tutorial.
- Once you do, start configuring the device.
- If he asks you Apple ID and the password of the previous owner, it is because the device is still linked to your account. Ask him to enter his password. If the owner is not present, you can remove the device from your account by signing in to iCloud.
VERY IMPORTANT: Don’t buy a used iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch until its content has been deleted and it has been removed from the previous owner’s account.
If the person who wants to sell it to you cannot perform the steps we have discussed, be suspicious. He iPhone it could have been stolen or found somewhere.
