If you have a 16GB iPhone 5c and a replacement is required through the Apple Store or an authorized service, will replace it with a 32GB model of storage as advertised by the Appl and in an internal note, which was shared with service providers this morning.
In this internal note, the following has been disseminated, as collected by MacRumors:
Orders for all inventory served from the iPhone 5c unit (16GB) can be replaced with 32GB Phone 5c models until further notice.
This doesn’t mean that the rule says this always happens, but they have given the possibility of the provider of a 32 GB model to those users who stay without a 16 GB terminal while it is being repaired. But, if there are drives available of the lowest capacity you will get one of this model.
We are not very clear about the reasons why Apple has given these orders to the suppliers, but we think that there is too much stock of this storage and there are not so many devices in the smaller capacity warehouses.
This device was introduced in 2013, and it was not a big hit but obviously there are still drives among users that require some kind of repair, and so they don’t run out of cell phones during the repair period since Apple offers both 32 GB and 16 GB drives, depending on what is in stock.
What do you think of this step they’ve taken since Apple.
