Make Yourself an iPhone 5 Right Now, Kinda

By Sam Gibbs on at

On the face of it, not a lot is changing for the next generation iPhone, well, in design aesthetic at least. Which is great news for those of us stuck with an iPhone 4 or 4S, because you can turn it into a pretty convincing iPhone 5 with just a quick mod.

For under £20, with free shipping, you can turn your so-last-generation iPhone into a brand new, not even released yet, fake iPhone 5. The "kit", which just looks like a change of back plate plus some screw drivers, is based on the two-tone iPhone 5 rumours flying around. It looks pretty good, as replacement back plates go, with the seller claiming the "camera glass lens [is] of [the] same quality as original iPhone back panel". I can't tell you whether that's true or not, but if you're looking for a new look for your ageing iPhone; want to replace a smashed back, or just want to make it look like you're way ahead of the curve, £20 isn't all that much of a punt.
