If one has a problem with their iPhone (i.e. device powering itself on and off, ring/silent switch falling off, stuck pixel, etc.) and an appointment is made with an Apple Store Genius Bar, the Genius will commonly perform a "Device swap". It seems that this is done much more often than simply trying to fix the device, a clear indicator of Apple's award winning customer service. However, I was wondering if anyone knows if Genius Bars will still perform device swaps after one's iPhone's standard 1-year warranty runs out. I am assuming they still might as long as physical/water damage is not visible, but I honestly have no idea. AppleCare extends hardware coverage for 2 additional years, thereby guaranteeing 2 more years of being able to "Swap devices" at an Apple Store. Whether or not the Geniuses will still swap after the 1 year standard warranty is pretty much indicative of whether I will purchase AppleCare in a few months or so. Thanks y'all.
