Hey guys just FYI, I got my moms iPhone 5 replaced due to water damage and the phone still had ios 6.1.4. Sadly I had to restore to ios 7 because the backup wouldn't work with ios 6. So if anyone is still looking for ios 6 iphone 5, the apple store is worth a shot.

This was the apple store in southcenter mall

It's really hit or miss, so hard to really say what you will (or won't) get, but, yeah, there are some with iOS 6 still on them.

When my iPod touch 5th gen was replaced, the day after iOS 7 came out, I got iOS 6, but also had to restore from and iOS 7 backup. It's a good thing I like iOS 7!
