So you buy an iPhone 4s keep it in the vault for 5 years and and go back to Apple after that and RMA the device, they will honour it??

No.

Punch in the Serial Number at Apple's website, and you'll see that the warranty has already started from before the date of purchase.
You can change that, buy providing Apple Support with the Invoice of your purchase. They will correct the purchase date according to their records (provided you have purchased from an Apple Authorized Seller).

Activation and registration r two diff things. If u punch in the serial no of this phone it will ask u to activate the phone via iCloud or iTunes . Next day u will see the activation date as your warranty start date provided u register the phone as well. although with iCloud now, i think even if u activate the warranty details show up on the apple site .

Te bill is only needed when u activate the phone but do not register it . If u don't register it will not show up on the apple site . If two- three months down the line u remember the activation date u can register it against ur Apple Id provided u remember the date u activated it .

If u do not remember the activation date apple will register it based on ur invoice date.

Most retailers have 2 yr old iPad 1's in stock but unless the ipad is activated the warranty does not start . He can sell the iPad 1 after two years if he wishes and the one year warranty will start the day that iPad is activated .

Only problem the customer may face is if the iPad 1 needs replacement apple may just give the iPad 2 if they don't have the iPad 1 in stock .

also in the worse case scenario if ur phone goes completely dead someday and u don't have a bill . there is no way apple will replace ur phone even if u have the box which shows its a india purchase cause there is no way to prove that the phone was from the same box . this is the only time when bill is really important even if u take it overseas to u claim warranty u may not be given a replacement . this is clearly stated on the apple website in the terms and conditions . apple site clearly states that u need purchase invoice to claim warranty but since consumer protection laws are better abroad u do get a replacement but in INdia there is no way u will get a new one

Not exactly.

Although, I will definitely verify his claim with my upcoming purchases.

What he is saying does make sense, but until a few years back, It was always that you had to scan your Invoice and send it to Apple, and they would update your purchase date as your warranty start date. I don't know if things have changed now.

Perfectly true mate. I got an iPhone 4 from a guy who had bought it sometime last year but not activated it. I activated it in Jan this year and warranty began from that date. I checked the same with apple and they confirmed.

That's an excellent warranty setup they've got. Other manufacturers will only do the same if you have the invoice.. which hopefully everyone does.
