This is a factor in choosing Koodo. If I have to upgrade to iOS8 after buying, it will take up space on the phone.

There's no way any iPhone thats shipped out now by any carrier or Apple to have iOS 7. It will at least be 8.0

Apple always ships their products with their latest operating systems when shipped. If you bought an iPhone 4 today it would come with iOS 7.1.2 (the latest available for it) and not iOS 4.0 which was what was the first system that iPhone ran.

No.
I bought an iPad Air 2 directly from Apple's online store last week, and it came with 8.1.2. What software they come with depends on when they were manufactured, not when you buy.

Ok, consensus sounds like it will come with iOS 8. Would love it if someone who recently bought an iPhone 5S from Koodo could confirm.

Aside from that, I'll just hope it does...

Each store can have stock from different batches. They can't confirm it.

Ok. In that case I'll ask at a store to be sure. Thanks.

"it will take up space on the phone." What? If that really does happen, use iTunes for a clean install.

I read an article somewhere that said this was a problem. Just worried about 16 GB already not being much space — wish Apple made the 32 GB easier to find! But maybe I could just do a clean install.

What you read was true at the beginning but they fixed it in small updates so you don't need to worry about that!

It comes with iOS 8. I just got one a couple months ago and it had it on it.

Sweet! Thank you. I'll still ask at the store, since they might be selling older ones.
