If you really really can’t wait to rock the iPhone 5’s glass/aluminum two-toned design, have an iPhone 4 or 4S, and are willing to engage in minor warranty-breaking behavior, listen up. iPhone5mod.com is currently shipping a “conversion kit” that will give your iPhone the look we’ve only seen in leaked pictures.
According to the site,
“This iPhone 5 conversion mod kit converts your iPhone 4 /4S to look just like the iPhone 5! (assuming that the iPhone 5 leaks are real…) ! When we first saw the leaked iPhone 5 photo from various tech sites, we were all anxious to try out! We thought that the easiest and fastest way out is to convert our iPhone 4 / 4S to look just like iPhone 5.”
Worldwide shipping is available, and the backplate comes in both white (with aluminum with a lighter finish) and black (with aluminum with a darker finish). It certainly looks like the leaked iPhone 5 backplates we’ve seen, but definitely proceed with caution. The site claims that this mod is created with parts of the same quality as Foxconn suppliers, but here aren’t any real reviews out there, so it’s entirely possible that it’s a piece of junk. What’s more, at $29.90, it’s not cheap.
Personally I think I’m going to wait until the actual iPhone 5 comes out, but if this accessory looks like something that you’d like, check out the demo video below and the iPhone5mod store here.
Do you love this design enough to go third-party to get it early, or are you happy with your official Apple-sanctioned design? Sound off in the comments section below or on twitter @TiP_Jake.
