Are you tired of your iPhone looking like all of the other millions of handsets out there? These new transparent back panels from iFixit should do the trick. They add a touch of cool to your handset by giving you insight to your iPhone’s insides.

Typically, these see-through panels go for over $50, but for a limited time iFixit has them on sale for just $29.99. And you won’t just get the back plate, iFixit is including the tools to install the thing, a screen protector, and a wet bag…

Installing a back plate is much easier than it sounds. All it requires is removing two screws from the bottom of your handset and pulling it off. For those that are looking for help, we posted a short video clip on how to do it a few months back.

The plate is compatible with the iPhone 4S, but iFixit also has iPhone 4 kits available. And compliments of Sebastien, you can get an extra $5.00 off the backplate and kit by using this coupon code: 5611FIXIT. Hurry, supplies are limited.

Did you snag one of these see-through covers?

    Why pay to make your iphone uglier?

  • jose castro

    ya helllllllllll no, ya i rather have the kit where u can mod the apple logo in the back to make it light up

  • really ugly

  • Just placed my order!

    I’ve been eyeing similar transparent back panels for a while, but they’re all made of plastic instead of glass and many of them do not come with flash defusers. This package seems to be the real deal. Also, I trust iFixit a hell of a lot more than those sketchy china based companies that sell the other transparent panels (even though iFixit’s are probably made in China too lol).

    I have one. But don’t pay $50 for it. Lol. I got mine on ebay. I did a lot of research on this and just about all of these come from china. I got mine for $8 with free shipping. So save money if you have patience and order off of ebay. I have had mine for about 5 months and no problems.

    • Those sub-$10 transparent backplates are made of cheap plastic and often times don’t come with a flash diffuser. And when they do come with the flash diffuser, they’re not very good.

      This one is made of glass like the original iPhone back plates are, and it looks like it comes with a much better flash diffuser. I’ll do a real review next week when it gets here, but if you’re thinking about getting a transparent back plate, I’d jump on this deal before its gone.

  • I would prefer something like that for the front. seeing as most covers cover the back anyway. obviously it would just be the top and bottom part.
