    not anytime soon you should be good. Unless you go to an Apple store that does a lot of swap daily.

    The update is only available for some models of the iPhone 5s and 5c sold in China and some European/Asia Pacific iPhone models compatible with China's networks (those that are identified as iPhone 5,4 and 6,2):

    I have read (recently) of people replacing their 5 and still having 6.x.x on it. My feeling is that replacements are shipped with whatever was the newest firmware just before shipping. From there they are never updated again, except by their future end user.

    Did they stop signing 7.0.4? usually they don't immediately stop signing the previous firmware. (They may have done, I am just asking)
