My iPhone 5 64GB 6.1.2 has a malfunctioning camera sensor so I'm getting a warranty replacement. However I badly want to avoid iOS 7. Presumably, any refurbished iPhone 5's at this point (December 2013) are all going to have iOS 7. Since my phone has never had iOS 7 and all my backups are 6.1.2, is there going to be any way for me to restore my backup onto my new (replacement) phone EXACTLY as it was? (The ultimate goal is for it to feel as though the whole thing never happened).
Since the 64GB model is quite rare, is it possible their old stock still has iOS 6?
