    There is an used iPhone 5S offered to me from someone, I will check it tomorrow whether it is original or coloned, and also if it was stolen (opened ICloud). I know how to differentiate between the original and the cloned, but what about the opened ICloud?

    Unlocked\Bypass ICloud
    Or how to determine stolen IPhone?

    iCloud lock can’t be bypassed

    You have to open it to find out.

    The phones with bypassed iCloud lock have their flash memory, baseband, and baseband flash replaced. You would have to look for evidence of a reworked logic board.

    I think it's possible to do that; at some specialty stores. Certainly not something legal.

    How can this be done?

    I genuinely think that’s not possible, it took FBI to hire a specialist company and spend millions to break the iCloud lock on a 5S. It’s a brick after that lock.

    Watch this video. For iPhone 5s, the A7 CPU doesn't need to be replaced. But the other chips do need to.

    We're not talking about accessing the phone data.

    We're talking about breaking the association between iCloud and a specific iPhone.

    Okay, Thanks All.
    I think when an iPhone -find my phone enabled- stolen, it will demand Apple ID and Password. the thief will bypass this in some stores (need money), to access to the iPhone. some people called this "ICloud Blocked" but I think it has nothing to do with iCloud. Wrong of me.
    I just want to check the iPhone which I will buy -as a secondary phone- if it is stolen or not, and certainly if it is stolen it will have been iCloud unlocked.
