check if you typed everything correctly (could be you missed a space or used lower case instead of uppercase).

Hi, the CPU identifier app seems to be not reliable. It identifies my iphone as an iphone 6s whereas it's an iPhone 5s. Sincerely

Are you sure you aren't just reading the model number wrong? For instance, I have an iPhone 6, and the model number for the iPhone 6 reads as "iPhone7,2"
