Mod kit lets you convert your iPhone 4/4S into an iPhone 5

It’s extremely likely that the two-tone back panels we’ve been seeing over the past few months are indicative of what we’ll see on Apple’s next smartphone. And some folks aren’t very happy about that.

But for those of you who like the design, you don’t have to wait until next month to enjoy it. A new ‘iPhone 5’ mod kit has surfaced that allows you to convert your iPhone 4/4S into Apple’s next-gen handset…


The mod kit includes a back panel, and both Phillips-head and Pentalobe (Five-Point Star) screw drivers. The back panel is made of aluminum, glass-like acrylic, and includes an original glass lens cover.

While it sounds like these things are well-made, we obviously have no way of knowing that. It is worth mentioning, however, that the manufacturer describes them as ‘durable,’ and offers a 30-day return policy.

If you are interested, the mod kits run $29.99 a pop. The price includes free worldwide shipping, unless you want it shipped via Speedpost (guaranteed 5-7 day delivery), and you get to choose white or black.

So, what are your thoughts on the ‘iPhone 5’ mod kit?
