hey all, my wife has an iphone 5 and it has died due to accidental damage. i was planning to take it to the genius bar and have apple replace it, which they will do for A$408.95. however now future iOS releases won't be supporting 32bit devices like the iphone5 i am thinking this will be a waste of time.

it got me wondering though - the iphone5 is quite an old device, to they replace it with another iphone5, or with something 64bit like an iphone 5S or SE?? we live quite some distance from an apple store, so i'm hoping someone else might have had experience with this.

thanks all :)

A$408 How does that compare to the price of a new SE over there ?
Pretty close to the price of an SE, hence why I'm not too keen to pay it and get another 5!!

Thanks for your help guys, saved me a trip :)
