They'd better not. Unless they're going to refund me the cost of my watch. Disabling it on watches brought in after the ban might be acceptable, but mine was purchased before the ban.

Better advice would be: "If you don't want to be robbed, don't dress rich."
Nothing like a little victim blaming to go with my coffee in the morning...

If it is the courier then any Apple Store could also get saddled with fake devices without knowing it.While true, every iPhone I've ever purchased at an Apple Store was opened and set up by the tech while I watched. Seems less likely for a fake to pass muster in that case.Stories like this make me glad there's an Apple Store near where I live. I would be absolutely incensed if Chris-J-88's experience happened to me.
