You will not be happy then as they will not allow you to upgrade.

even if you had an iphone 4 they would give you a 4 not even a 4S!' they have a pretty big stock of products they no longer sell even in the apple store. yes 3GS as well.

Trust me, they will still have warranty replacements on a big shelf out back.... Way back in the day when the original shuffle had been updated a few months earlier (& I had never set foot in an Apple Store before, except to browse), I got all excited when they agreed to replace my last gen shuffle... I never dreamt that they would still have the old model in stock for replacement, but they did. And back then Apple weren't even a fraction of the retail monster that they are today.

What I would suggest you doing then is go to your Apple Store as soon as possible and get the replacement for you 6 (to another 6) and then immediately sell it somewhere, Craigslist , eBay, swappa (which I just used, I loved it) or something of the like.. That way you can technically sell it as a like new phone with no scratches or dents/ marks and you will get the most resale value and then you can buy the 6S.

This could only happen via applecare on the phone. After 5 straight replacements, they will give you the newer model. They did it for me once and my sister once. Gave me a 5s after all the scratching problems with the 5.

You will never get an upgrade, but you may get a replacement. Just go to the Apple Store already and find out whether it is eligible for replacement.

If they did that, there would be a huge flow of "accidentally" bent iPhones coming in every year right after a new model is released. So no, Apple is not that stupid.

check appointments daily. I noticed they will show they are full for sometimes a week out, but then when you check later that day there are appointments for the same day open.
