How to Check the Firmware in a Loked iPhone?

iPhone Firmware Check

It is very simple to check the firmware that you are using in an iphone but it will get difficult when you are going to check it in a locked iphone.
For an iphone which you are using just go to the "About " section then go to "Settings" then you will be able to check the firmware version.
But this is a problem if someone wants to check the firmware of a locked iPhone. If you want to do this , select the mode into DFU mode aka recovery mode and you need to connect it to PC. After connection,itunes would popup a message saying that a iPhone in recovery mode has been detected, what you do now is hit RESTORE and you'll see the downloading, pause the transfer but dont hit cancel. Now you need to go to the temporary download for itunes to read the name of the firmware.

For windows based systems the location would be commonly at
[operating system drive]:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
The version should be something before the file type of the firmware file.Hope it will help you.Please let me know if it helps.
