    What the do is replace the back of it, and the screen, and whatever was wrong with it. So effectively, it is new, but it isn't. But it is a refurb.

    Apple does not repair your device normaly, it will replace it with a refurbished one or a new. I asked a AppleCare member and they said that to me.

    It will only be new if they don't have any refurbs at the time. Most of the time they have refurbs in stock. They both would look new, so there is no way that you visually would be able to tell the difference.

    they told me the legal rights wouldent let they say there brand new because there iphone box cost $60 and the Sim tool cost $10 and when you get it replaced you dont get that you just get it out the small box
    so they
    cant tell you its brand new but it acutally is
