About the repairing tips for the Genius Bar...

The story begins when I bought the broken 11 pro max at eBay for only 322 bucks. It was a 256GB model and the color is Space Grey.

Before that , I bought the brand new iPhone 11 Pro Max about 2 weeks ago with the same model and color.

Luckily the Apple Care is still available for 49 days. So the question: can I swipe the sim tray and tell Apple that my iPhone breaks, then charge me the replacement price of the Apple Care?

I got 49 days to wait for the answer

What’s the point of swapping the SIM tray? They can connect it to diagnostics and see every identity number on it.

The SIM tray is only holding a physical S/N ID. The logic board and the OS both hold the same ID. Apple will use these S/N ID's so your switch-a-roo won't hide the fact you swapped the SIM tray.
