I had my appointment with an Apple Genius today regarding my iPhone. Ended up being able to swap my phone because of overheating and battery issues. But the Apple Store didn't have stock at that time so they're gonna have to ship one over to their store for me to pickup. Does anyone know if the phone that I'll be getting will be a refurbished iPhone 5 or a brand new one? Thanks.

I am glad to hear this! Thanks.

Is it true that they have people checking the replacement phones to make sure they're fine?

I'd be surprised though that you would get the full retail packaging with your replacement phone, i.e., you will get a new phone and they will take your old phone, but you will end up with a phone that doesn't match the SN on the original box.

Refurbished phones will start appearing within about 4-6 weeks after the initial release.
