All Apple devices have a Model Number  like” MNQN2LL/A”. It has two alphabetical letters before /A in this case. Using these letters we can identify the iPhone’s Model Region.

First I want to mention that there are no many differences in iPhones. There are only  few differences like charger and package language but some iPhones don’t have FaceTime like in Arabic countries. Japanese and Korean iPhones can’t off shutter sound.

To find Model Number,

-Go to Settings>>>About>>>

Format in Model Code  

First letter in model number represent the source of the device.

  • “F”    –  Refurbished Unit
  • “M”  –  Retail Unit 
  • “N”   –  Replacement Unit
  • “P”    –  Personalized (engraved) Unit

And it is followed by characters between “A” and “Z” or “0” to “9”

After either one or two characters represent the “Region” of the device origin.
