    That's very hard to tell from the poor quality photos you're showing.

    How is the print quality of the text?
    How is the color of the text? Apple generally prints in very light colors, as it's harder to spoof, rather than just simple dark ink.
    Does it contain all the text you'd find from googling an Apple charger?
    Does the text contain any typos?

    There are cheap fakes out there.
    It would help if your picture was clearer, so we could read the text.

    It DOES have a cute Apple symbol on the case.
    If you have a problem with that adapter, don't trust it, and use an alternate.

    No! What kind of camera do you use? Nokia 3310? The iPhone camera is much better...you should get one of those...

    The text is completely illegible. So no.

    I can't spot any typos. Text alignment is good. It's a light shade of grey. Looks good to me.

    So, does it work?
    What has happened that makes you suspicious of your power adapter/charger?

    It's not real. All my OEM apple adapters have green dots on them, it's been discussed many times in the past. Check out the below thread. Doesn't mean it won't work or necessarily faulty, just not an apple product. I only use name brand, reliable third party adapters like those from Belkin. I never use generic ones.

    I don't recall apple ever releasing a charging adapter with the apple logo on it like the way it's pictured.

    It has no green dot. It's either an original charger that needs to be replaced, or its (most likely) a fake.

    My vote is fake.

    The charger that came with my iPhone 7+ straight from Apple doesn't have a green dot. Neither does my Apple Watch charger.

    I have several adapters lying around that came with new Apple products (in sealed boxes purchased either from Apple or Best Buy) that look like both of the above. The green dot ones are several years old, the apple-logo ones are from this year's purchases.

    I'd say both types are legit.
