    So I bought applecare+

    If I bust up the 5S now, I get a replacement 5S. Easy.

    What happens after the iPhone 6 is released?
    I'm assuming Apple will sell an iPhone 6 and a iPhone 5C/6C (which I'm assuming will be the 5S with a plastic body).
    So then do we get this model then instead of a 5S?

    Just curious- and I hope I never have to replace it!

    I got a faulty iPhone 5 battery a few days ago more than a month after the 5S release, they got me a new iPhone 5 not a 5c or 5s.

    If you break your iPhone 5 right now and have Apple Care +, you will get a replacement iPhone 5. They may have stopped selling them, but they still stock them for replacement and repair purposes.

    This, exactly.

    Now if you went with a different warranty company that might not be the case. (i.e. SquareTrade)

    If you don't have AppleCare+, what happens then?

    Doesn't matter if you have AppleCare or it's a regular warranty replacement or you are paying for repairs. You'll still get the same model, color, and carrier.

    I went in for a exchange a couple months ago and the Genius told me that they actually had a couple Original iPhones in stock just for the purpose of exchange, she said they can't sell them to the public (man would I like a original iPhone in mint condition) ... So it is very true that they will replace your phone with the exact same Model & Capacity.

    I have my original iPhone still and it's still in pretty good condition since I put invisible shield and case on it. I also have the original box and accessories that it came in.
