    Hey, title is a little deceiving heheh, i wanted to know if its possible in the following scenario:

    I buy an extended warranty on my ipod touch bought in January. This extends to January 2010. If my ipod just so happens to need warranty service (in the event they REPLACE [not fix] the ipod) within a month before the warranty expires (placing me at December 2009) Would i get the Gen 1 touch replacement, or the Gen 2 touch. This is a applecare warranty, not a reseller such as future shop which i know you already would get the new ipod.

    Basically do they keep stock of the older ipods for waranty purposes? And don't give me answer like "probably, i think so etc." Either you know for a fact, have experienced this in the past or can read the future.....

    Thanks.

    Yes, they give refurbs for replacement so it just depends on if they still have refurbs for replacements.

    the last time i got an ipod on replacement i walked into the apple store and they swapped me a fresh, brand new ipod within minutes. This was the same version, but thats because it was the current and latest version of the ipod. So most stores wouldnt have old stock after a year and a half would they?

    this is because they were still in production but when the ipod touch 2nd gen is released they will stop making them therefore no new ipod touch

    that makes no sense whatsoever. I get a replacement ipod since its on warranty, so if they stop production of the old ipod, then i would get the Gen2.....

    even if they still had you would still get a new ipod out of it anyway.
