    Hi everyone

    I just bought an iPhone SE (A1662) on eBay. When it arrived I checked the IMEI. The odd thing is, the IMEI checker is saying that I have an iPhone 6S:

    The checker specifies A1662 which is correct but "iPhone 6S" clearly is not.

    Is this just a glitch? Or do I have some kind of fake on my hands?

    Thanks!

    The date of release is also wrong as the iPhone SE was released on March 31, 2016...

    So you trust what a random online website displays?
    Why dont you try Apples website?

    I have a way to check for sure.

    Open box... Is it a 6S or an SE?

    Thanks! I checked on the Apple web site and it says it is indeed an SE. Everything else seems to check out.
