    Does this mean we will no longer get a shiny new replacement if we damage our phone? Is it no longer an option?

    Any third party installments void your warranty! I believe you're talking about changing your housing, right?

    Or do you mean what kind of device do we receive from Apple when something is damaged? i.e. New or refurbished device?

    No. Apple stores are getting repair kits to take care of cracked screens, faulty power buttons, etc. I believe this will stop them from giving a new phone even if you have AppleCare+

    Possibly. But I don't think it says anywhere in the applecare+ agreement that you are guaranteed a new phone. But I'd have to read it again to be certain.

    Learn something new everyday! Maybe it won't be used towards AppleCare+ owners. I don't think they'd make you all pay $100 then $75 deductible and give you a refurbished phone.

    Yeah, I still don't see that being for anyone with AppleCare+. Maybe for people with the year warranty that comes with the phone.

    For me I would prefer that they just repair the device. I have had mixed results over the years with replacement devices. Plus this way my serial always matches my box when it comes time for resale.

    In the article this is what they state:
    If a customer’s iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c is under an AppleCare warranty, part replacements due to defects will be free of charge.

    Well I guess I got too spoiled with the stories I've heard of Apple giving AppleCare+ customers shiny new replacements.

    This was just last week. I guess it depends on the incident. 2 months ago my son got his wet so they just replaced the whole phone.
