    I have an iPhone 6 plus and I want to ask something about replacing the back cover.

    I know and see that on the back there's the model number and the IMEI and serial number.

    How is there a way to replace it and still have all of this info on the back? Do the new back covers comes with nothing on the back ?

    Back cover? You know there's no back cover on the iPhone 6 models right? It's an aluminum uni-body design. Meaning if you're thinking of changing "back covers", it means you're going to move ALL of the internal components like processor, logic board, display and camera into another case :confused:

    But to answer your question, yes, you'll lose those numbers on the back unless you have them engraved back on, but it will still be on your phone in the software. You can find them in Settings -> General -> About Phone.
