    Since the iPhone 5 is being discontinued if you have apple care and use your warranty to get a new phone, what phone will apple give you? Will you automatically get a refurbished phone or is there a chance they will replace your iPhone 5 and give you a 5s?

    They will probably have iPhone 5 models stashed in the back. I took in an original iPad last year and they went and got one in the back to replace.

    They will have plenty of refurb iPhone 5 models for a long long time.
    They still have 3GS replacements available.

    Didn't they just recently stop supporting the original iPhone in the Apple Store?

    5 years of support is long enough.

    You would have gotten a refurb anyways. So, yes you will still get a refurb 5. If they carry refurbs several generations back, they will certainly carry the 5.

    Yep, Apple keeps plenty of the old model around for warranty work.
