Your iPhone 5 May Have A Mismatched Serial Number

A highly reliable source has sent us documentation that Apple has sent to Apple Stores around the country, stating that iPhone 5s manufactured before August 26 may have mismatched serial numbers. According to the document and our source, the serial number present in iTunes, iOS, and iOS Diagnostics may not match the internal serial numbers on the CDMA-version of the iPhone 5 (A1429).

There is no telling how many devices were built before August 26, but Apple does say in the document that it will still service the device if it has not been tampered with.
