    I bought a iPhone 4S last year on launch day in October, I recently got it replaced at my local Apple store because of a fault. It was free, under warranty etc.

    I just put the serial into Apple's website to see exactly when the warranty runs out and it says January 2013. I thought it would be October.

    Anyone know why this is? Something about the replacement I'm missing perhaps?

    They typically give you a 90 day warranty on a replacement. So October + 3 months from your original warranty would be January....at least that is what it looks like they did.

    Hmm that might be an error in your favor on Apple's part. I think the 90 days extra is only if your warranty expires before the 90 days would be up. Looks like they just tacked it on at the end :)

    same thing happened to me with applecare+...They replaced a phone because of a volume issue (didn't have to use my applecare+), but they extended it out 2 years from the date of the new replacement which was 8 months into the applcare+
