Fake is a cheap product that looks like it was made by Apple. Unofficial accessories are those made by third-party companies without the blessing of the iPhone manufacturer. Generally, if you buy an inexpensive cord from a reputable retailer that is certified by Apple, then the product is safe.
The best way to make sure you don’t sell fake is to buy directly from Apple or from a reputable High Street retailer, Guiseppe, who is an ESF Product Safety Specialist, told The Sun. However, if you have purchased one from a discount store or online store and are not sure whether it is a phone, a number of obvious tips are available. With Apple charging up to £ 29 for a charging cable on its website, it is understandable that some customers are looking to buy from elsewhere.
If you are buying a phone from a third-party vendor, make sure it is certified by Apple by looking closely at the accessory box. Certified third-party accessories have Apple’s MFi badge on their box, which says “Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad.” In addition, find missing markers or spelling errors in text on the string, Guiseppe said. “These are the easiest ways to spot a fake – but be careful, because fake products are becoming more and more obvious.”
