Avoiding Fake Apple Products

If you look around online you'll find many counterfeit Apple products at major online retailers. While these may be cheaper, they are usually much lower quality and not worth it. You can often spot these fakes by looking for red flags on the sales pages and reading reviews.

    My earphone packaging when I got my iPhone from Apple, is exactly like the one that you said was a phony. I didn’t get the box type that you said was original. Confusing.

    Barbara: How long ago was that though? The fake ones were trying to emulate real packaging, but were clearly out-of-date.

    I also got my earphones from Apple in the same packaging you showed as fake. Got my phone a few years ago. It’s the 6s.

    Gary I have two of the “apple” earphones.Both of them look exactly like the product which you say are the fakes but they came with apple products, one a Mac and the other an iPad a much older iPad. My Mac is from 2015. Gary the plastic case that it came with has the apple logo imprinted on the back and looks like the logo on my Mac.Very confusing

    John: If yours came from Apple, then they are real. Not sure what is confusing. The packaging back then would have looked like that.

    Is there a secret to using the Apple iPhones? I can’t get them to stay in my ears.

    I don’t see anything confusing about Gary’s point. He says that the knockoffs come in a package which is not the package that the current Earpods from Apple are packaged in. The knockoffs are emulating packaging that earlier products from Apple came in. That’s the point he makes about clues about fakes. But his point is that the fakes are not the same quality. If you want to buy a product closer to Apple quality, he suggests considering brands which do not try to pretend to be from Apple.
