Totally, the least they could have done was tweak the design a bit for their sake.
I don't think it's anything like that. They don't individually number the first 6 iPhones then mass produce them afterwards.
Run o the mill was an exaggeration, I guess. I was just making a point.
If it were me, and I chose to get in on the original 6 (which I'm glad I didn't now) I'd definitely feel some type of way if the boot got ran again. It sucks to number something 1 of 6, then produce 10 more after that is all I'm saying. Now it should say 1 of 16. Maybe the original 6 don't care, but I would. I guess it's just me.
