How to check iPhone Activation Lock status?

Apple introduced Activation Lock in iOS 7 to deter theft by preventing anyone from completing initial activation and using it unless the owner used their password to wipe the device. If I buy a used iPhone, how can I make sure that Activation Lock is off before I hand over the money?


Apple has an Activation Lock status page on its website. All you need to do is enter the device IMEI or serial number, and it will provide the current status. https://www.icloud.com/activationlock/
