Are imeipro.info and similar sites accurate when it comes to checking iCloud lock status of iPhones?
I’m buying an iPhone off someone who insists there’s no iCloud lock on the phone. I checked imeipro, and it says iCloud lock is on. But how could it possibly check? It doesn’t communicate with Apple’s servers, does it? I thought iCloud.com/activationlock was the only certain way to check status, and now, no third party has access to the Apple’s secure severs.
I once reset my own phone (so iCloud was gone), and when I checked imeipro, it said it was on. Maybe it takes time for it to update?
If I call or chat with Apple directly and ask them to check the iCloud status with the IMEI, will they do it? What if I go to the Apple Store?
