If I get my 4S replaced at an Apple store will it be loaded with iOS 6 or 7?

    I don't want to lose my jailbreak and I've heard iOS 7 drains your battery faster but my sleep button is stuck.

    If 7, will anywhere fix the sleep button? I have a workaround temporarily using Activator but would prefer to fix this.

    I'm sure there are still a bunch of them loaded with 6.1 or whatever

    It would be too soon for iOS 7 to show up on older model refurbs.

    Op honestly it spends on the stores stock levels and the popularity of the model. Your 99.9% guaranteed to get iOS 6.1.3 or earlier at the moment. Leave it a while and this reduces especially if it's a 32/16gb model

    get it replaced ASAP, pretty much guaranteed to get it on ios6 unless you have a really high volume store.

    It will be on iOS6.

    Last year, when I had my 4S swapped at Apple, iOS6 had come out already, and my replacement 4S was on iOS5, a few months AFTER iOS6 had been out.

    It will definitely be on iOS6.

    Is there a jailbreak for 6.13 or earlier? Will it work on the 4S? This is very important to me. Thx.

    I just had my iPhone 4S (64GB, AT&T) replaced with a new one on Sept 12th at an Apple store here in Columbus, OH because my Sleep/Wake button stopped working as well (thankfully I had Applecare+ since I bought it in Nov 2011). The new/refurb 4S they gave me came with 6.0.1. I am sure your new 4S will be 6.x software as well.
