Check iCloud Activation Lock Status of iPhone or iPad

A new section comes in the form of a web page that enables anyone with the IMEI or serial number of an iDevice to check the status of Activation Lock of a specific device in an attempt to prevent themselves from buying an iOS device that can’t be activated with the credentials of the original iCloud credentials of the real owner.

Update 1: The official iCloud check tool was removed by Apple for an unknown reason. We have found and tested new working way to check the activation lock status of your device. You need to find your IMEI code or SN to check the FMI status of your iPhone or iPad.

In case you don’t know, Activation Lock is enabled on any device when Find My iPhone is activated within the Settings of an iPod, iPad or iPhone running iOS 7.0 or above. The function then requires an Apple ID and password of the account that activated the lock in order to carry out tasks such as disabling Find my iPhone feature, erasing all hardware data, and reactivating the device for use with another account. It is Apple’s way of protecting against theft, loss and fraud resale.

Although Activation Lock is a great thing, a big drawback is the inability of a new user to use the device once it has been purchased via secondary sales channel; when the Find my iPhone is left activated by the previous owner.
