Apparently someone in China was smart enough to develop a mod that’ll add a backlight to your iPhone’s Apple logo. Similar to Apple’s line of MacBooks, the logo will glow when the phone’s display turns on. The best part? You can do this at home, in just 5 minutes.
According to K.O., Gadget, the mod is definitely something that could be done at home without specialist equipment. The process will only take you 5 minutes to do it. It does not use your iPhone’s original rear panel, but the mod kit includes a rear panel that features a transparent Apple logo to allow light to pass through it. Here’s the tricky part, where does the light come from? Well, all we can see in the video demonstration is that the man added a small piece of “light panel” into the iPhone and BOOM! It lights up!
K.O. Gadget even detailed that the addition of a backlight will not add any thickness to the phone and the bundled rear panel uses the standard glass back we are seeing on Apple’s iPhones. The company also added that the light, which glows when the phone receives a call or message or when the alarm sounds, would stay on for 15 seconds even after the screen goes off. And most importantly, the light does not noticeably affect battery performance or cause any heating issues.
Well, this isn’t the first time the iPhone’s logo has been set ablaze. In September, a UK-based iPhone repair company achieved the same thing, developing a hardware mod that’ll add a backlight to your iPhone’s Apple logo. Unfortunately, their mod is not DIY-friendly since it requires knowledge of iPhone circuitry and must be done by a repair specialist.
So, this unique hack here is currently available and it will run you $42.90. The modification would void the iPhone warranty, though K.O. Gadget said the modification is fully reversible. Worth it? Let us know in the comments!
