This is pretty cool. The folks over at iPatch, a UK-based iPhone repair shop, have come up with an interesting hardware mod that turns the headphone jack on your iPhone 4/4S into an LED flashlight.

If you recognize the name iPatch, it’s probably because it’s the same team that brought us the glowing Apple logo mod for the iPhone 4 last year. And now it’s back with the “headphone jack torch…”

Don’t worry, the headphone jack stays completely functional once the “torch” mod is installed. The iPatch team is even talking about creating see-through headphone cables that would light up from the LED. Cool.

But try not to get your hopes up just yet. Considering that the aforementioned logo mod, which we saw all the way back in September of last year, still isn’t available, we don’t expect this one to be either for some time.

What do you think of this hardware mod?

  • I have been waiting for the glowing apple logo mod from them and this just puts me more on the edge of desperation.

  • I would use it.

  • I’m going to see them in the morning!

  • That’s cool and all, but the iPhone already has a flashlight.

  • As I think the first mod where also never released…!? Or was anybody ever able to order one? I would have done but on there website is a statement ‘soon’ since they announced it. And I’m following iPatch’s twitter account since the article about the first mod occured here at iDB.

  • Already have this on my 4S… Pretty old

  • will these LEDs decrease battery life?

    • No they power themselves with pixie dust and unicorn poo.

    Could this be installed on an iPod touch?

    I think it is cleaver and possibly “cool” however, there are nearly a million “flashlight” apps on the iTunes store, most are free!

    So why would I need to add another flashlight to my headphone jack, and (most importantly) why pay for it too???

    One possible function I could see it useful for is for the Hearing Impaired. If iPatch were to build an App to support flashing this light when the phone rings, that would be really useful.

    I know there is an option in settings to flash the camera’s light when it rings for the hearing impaired, that that doesn’t do them any good if the iPhone is lying on its back.

    Pointless mod… you can already use the LED flash as a flashlight, why would you want light shooting out of your headphone jack the entire time your phone is in use?

    This is a pretty useless mod. But the glowing Apple logo on the other hand…

  • I dont like the fact that the LED in the headphone jack stays lit anytime the screen is on. Look like a fucking idiot texting blinding the hell outta anyone that is in front of you. Or talking on it and have this BRIGHT LED torch going up the side of your head? I like the glowing apple, but i have an LED on the back already that turns on with the double click of the power button Via Cydia app called Springflash. Works like a charm.

      I have mine set to turn on when I press the volume buttons simultaneously.

      • Ya it uses activator so u can set it up how u like.

        Yah, I just like hearing how people have their activator setup. It’s interesting to me.

        For me:
        Swipe up from bottom = multitask bar
        Swipe up from bottom left = brightness settings
        Swipe up from bottom right = weather channel app
        Pinch springboard = sound hound
        pinch (other pinch)springboard = shazam
        Swipe right status bar = lock screen
        Swipe left = sbs
        Double tap status bar = clock app (for alarms)
        Hold status bar = home button
        And lastly double click clock on lock screen = unlock

        What’s some of yours?
