As we wrote earlier, with the release of the new line of iPhone 13 smartphones Apple introduced new packaging for the gadgets - without the plastic wrap, but with paper security seals that are supposed to signal the integrity of the packaging. But that doesn't seem to work.
Chinese craftsmen immediately learned how to tamper with the wrapper. The more so, any overkill is not necessary for this : you only need special stickers, which seem to be already sold in Celestial Empire and are inexpensive. They and replace the original protective seal, and if you do it right - from the original can not be distinguished .
It turns out that the presence of a paper strip on packaging does not guarantee the authenticity of the contents. For example you might get a fake or used iPhone. So it is better to purchase at official stores and check the smartphone right away.
By the way, Apple assures that avoiding using film in packaging can reduce the amount of plastic used to 600 tons.
