How to find an iPhone’s country of origin?

This procedure is very simple as well.

Go to Settings > General > About > Model

Once you are at it, you will get to see the part number against the Model. Look for the two letters before the slash (/) because that is significant to find out the country of origin of your iPhone. If the last two letters before the slash are ‘LL’ (see image below) then your iPhone’s country of origin is USA. Similarly, if the last letter before the slash is ‘A’ then Canada is the maker of your iPhone.

    Sir in above mentioned list (MODEL CODE AND IPHONE’S COUNTRY OF ORIGIN) there is no code for Pakistan. So can you explain which region or country code is suitable for Pakistan? Means working properly every where in Pakistan.

      Hi

      You can select the origin of iPhone from anywhere in the world wherever it is available. iPhone generally works well in Pakistan. Let me know where do you reside in Pakistan

        12/05/2020 at 11:40 pm

        AA is not there

        A means Canada

      9Z? I am afraid but there is no such origin against 9Z. In fact there is no country listed in letter ‘Z’ itself. Can you double-check and get back?

    So if you have LL are you saying the iPhone was made in the United States?

    • Zubair Ahmed

      12/05/2020 at 11:37 pm

    • Zubair Ahmed

      18/05/2020 at 9:24 pm

    I’ve looked at a dozen iPhones from 6s to 11. They all say LL, and I know they weren’t made in America

    • Zubair Ahmed

      18/05/2020 at 9:24 pm

      Well, that’s your own judgement Dee Dee. But this is what Apple also says so [whatever is mentioned in the article]

    They say assembled in China on the back. So the code shown in the general about setting is not COO….more like the region code of where it is used.

    So ifyou have ZD are you saying the iPhone was made in the Luxembourg,Austria,Belgium,Monaco,Germany,France,Netherlands,Switzerland.
    But how can i find my country?

    • Zubair Ahmed

      22/05/2020 at 5:41 pm

      A very good question!

      You can check it here: http://iphonefrom.com/

      Moreover, if your iPhone model is ZD, it will largely depend from which Apple store among those countries you got your device from. That would answer your question.
