    I have a 5 that is perfect minus the screen (dead pixel at the bottom, wavy/grainy screen).

    I know that the 5 is much easier to repair than the 4/4s and more like 3g/3gs where the front screen comes off and can be swapped in minutes.

    Have they started doing this yet?

    I would be much more comfortable doing this than a whole swap, given that I don't want one with same issues and something else on top of it.

    They'll give you a new one. Apple doesn't do screen repairs at the Genius Bar.

    why they may do this, being that it is basically a brand new device (only a few weeks old), they will probably try to just give you a new phone. If it is nick and scratch free I would ask for the repair though.

    I saw that article and 9to5 is usually pretty accurate when it comes to retail info.

    But I'm just wondering when that will start.

    Maybe i should hold off on the swap game until then
