Chapter in this post:
Do you have an Apple device that you are not entirely sure of what specifications it has or which operating system it was sold with? Or have you bought a used iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch and now want to track the technical data and other information? Then the ministry will help you Reincubate lookup further. After entering the serial number of the Apple device, the service outputs the name, version, memory size, model number, original and last compatible operating system, manufacturing location, manufacturing period and more, both in the form of a website and via app.
On the website https://reincubate.com/de/lookup/ you can enter an Apple serial number or an IMEI of the following devices: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, Watch and HomePod. How you can find the serial number and IMEI of an Apple iPhone, you read in this guide. If you have entered the corresponding character string and confirmed the entry, then - if the corresponding information is in the database of the service - the data will be displayed by Reincubate Lookup. This can be worthwhile even before buying a used item if you request a photo of the back of the iPhone or MacBook bottom from the sellers on eBay, eBay classifieds or similar, read out the serial number and use the Reincubate Lookup to enter the information the display checked.

You can also find the serial number and IMEI query as an app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in the official App Store from Apple. The download is free and the four ratings currently have 5 out of 5 stars. You can download the 9,2 MB small app, which is currently only available in English, on devices with iOS 11.0 or newer. For a one-off second-hand purchase of an Apple device in the private sector, this may not make too much sense. But if you are looking for a quick and easy way to track device data for your repair or second-hand company, for example, then the app could be something for you (just like Mactracker).
