    There's almost no difference between them. You don't need to worry about this. Just enjoy your new phone.

    I'm surprised Apple let you return that many, unless they all had some type of defect.

    From 2016 when you can ask an eBay seller about their used iPhone... or the iPhone 7 which is rumored to have a TSMC chip.

    128gb Sim Free/Space Gray at Biltmore in Phoenix, AZ. This was a confirmed TSMC, I'm using it now.

    Apple doesn't ask for a reason.

    Do you know Apple would actually give you a refurbishment phone instead of a real new phone sometimes when you ask for replacement. It wouldn't happen only for the first one or two weeks when there isn't refurbishment yet. There could be refurbishment already since it has been more than 1.5 months.

    Let it go. There is a marginal difference between the two chips and the time you've spent posting on the forum is already more effort than its really worth. An iPhone with either chip meets the spec that Apple promised.

    Maybe try getting the sim free version and check the chip. I had two of them and both were TSMC. Could have just been a coincidence though.

    You can't. Stop obsessing. There's no help to be given to you.

    I'm looking forward to Apple raising prices and enforcing more rules on returns because of people like you. Thanks!

    As I mentioned above, people return may get a refurbishment instead of a real new one, so they take a big risk to do that. The model number is different and when you resell it then price is very different from a total new model number.

    Apple techs in the store only have new units available at the moment. Even if they were refurbished it costs Apple money and time. My replacement iPhone has a different serial number than the one on the box and I highly doubt most sane people will care as long as the phone is mint when I sell it. It will be out of warranty anyway.

    This isn't true. Ive sold many iPhones and no one cares the numbers don't match the box. Before every sale I always get a replacement. Keep the plastic on and list it as new. Never had a problem once.

    Think about it. What would you rather buy on eBay. A one year old used iPhone that matches the box or a Apple refurb with plastic on that has 3 months extra warranty and hasn't been used ?

    All your iDevices are already priced with the returns factored in.

    As much of an Apple fan I am, please don't give them a reason to get even more greedy like selling a 16gb phone for the price of a 32gb if you know what I mean.

    Highly doubt they factored in people returning 6 or even 17 iPhones like I've read on these forums.

    If it is just the first 1 to 2 weeks after Apple released 6s/6s+, yeah there should not be refurbished one yet, but now is Nov 7. The model number shows if it is new one or refurbished one, when you sell it then the buyer can know immediately if it is real new or refurbished.

    No one would want to use a new official price to buy a refurbished.

    It is not about the number on the box. The model number inside your phone, which you can turn on your phone to check it and you cannot change it, tell you exactly if it is a real new one or refurbished. Of course you can always find people who don't care or know if it is refurbished and sell it to them, this is a business for sure.

    Again, replacements are brand new. I've already checked my serial number.
