What is the Japanese version of the iPhone?

The Japanese iPhone version is the iPhone variant that Apple makes to be specifically supplied, sold, and used in Japan. iPhones in Japan cannot be configured to turn off the camera shutter sound per Japanese government regulations. 

But since iOS 15, Apple has provided a way to disable the camera shutter sound on Japanese iPhones. The fix works as long as the phone is not used in Japan. Click here to read more about this fix.

What does J/a mean in iPhone?

J/A is the country code for iPhones that Apple supplies specifically to Japan.

Which country is J A in iPhone?

The J/A iPhone country is Japan.

How do you know if an iPhone is a Japan or a US version?

You can find out if your iPhone is a Japan-version or a USA-version by checking its part number. There are two ways to check your iPhone’s part number. Click here to read more about how to check your iPhone’s country of origin step-by-step with images.

Option 1:

Look at the back of the iPhone’s box. Both the model number and the part number for the phone should be visible.

Option 2:

  • Unlock your iPhone and go to Settings > General > About.
  • In this sub menu, one of the rows is named “Model Number”
  • Tap this row to toggle between the iPhone’s model number and part number.

Here’s an example: MQ993J/A is the part number for a deep purple, 128GB, Japan iPhone 14 Pro Max. And it’s MQ8R3LL/A for a deep purple USA iPhone 14 Pro Max 128GB.

In the part number, look for the letter or two letters before the slash (/), because that is significant to find out the country of origin of your iPhone. 

If the last two letters before the slash are “LL” (as in LL/A), then your iPhone’s country of origin is the USA. But if the last letter before the forward slash is “J” (as in J/A), then your iPhone’s country of origin is Japan.

How do I know my iPhone is J?

To know if your iPhone is “J,” you have to check its part number. To check it, unlock your iPhone and go to Settings > General > About. In this submenu, there is a row displaying the iPhone’s model number. Tap this row to toggle between the iPhone’s model number and part number.

For example, MQ0F3J/A is the part number for a deep purple 128 GB Japan iPhone 14 Pro. The last two letters are J and A. That’s how to know if your iPhone is “J.”

Can you disable the camera shutter sound on the Japan iPhone variant?

On iPhones from Japan (with the J/A region code), the camera shutter sound cannot be turned off by default. As long as you use it inside of Japan, that is.

If you plan to use a Japanese iPhone 14 Pro outside of Japan, there is no need to worry. You can turn off the camera shutter sound on Japanese iPhones running iOS 15 or later by doing the following:

  • You must take the phone out of Japan.
  • You must insert a working sim card from another country.
  • Do not enable airplane mode (the shutter sound returns if airplane mode is enabled).

If all three of the aforementioned requirements are met, then you can silence the camera shutter sound by:

  1. Enabling the silent mode switch on the left side of the phone.
  2. Turning on live photos on the iPhone.

Why are iPhones cheap in Japan?

Apple has a 50% market share in Japan, where it competes with other smartphone giants like Samsung. Experts say that Apple may have strategically kept iPhone prices low in Japan so that its Japanese customers wouldn’t stop buying (source).

Can I use Japan iPhone in USA?

Yes. As long as your iPhone is unlocked, it will work in the USA. However, the Japan iPhone may have a few 4G and 5G bandwidth compatibility issues in the USA as it doesn’t support all the bandwidths used by US network carriers.

Can Japanese iPhone be used in other countries?

Yes, you can use a Japan iPhone in other countries as long as it is not carrier locked. The best way to be sure that an iPhone is not carrier locked is to buy it directly from an Apple Store without any carrier plans. 

If you buy your iPhone from a Japanese carrier on a payment plan, there are high chances that it will be locked. If your iPhone is locked, then you cannot use it in any other country.
