Apple unveiled its 2018 iPhone lineup on Wednesday. While it has retained its iPhones 7 and 8, the company has made it clear that its future smartphones will not have home buttons. Even the lower-priced iPhone XR is powered with Face ID and comes with its own ‘Haptic Touch’ unlocking motion.
If you’re partial to Touch ID and have a few hours to spare, here’s one cool project to check out.
Developer Scotty Allen from YouTube channel Strange Parts frequents Shenzhen, China’s electronics manufacturing hub, and has spent the past year learning to build his own version of the iPhone 7.
Naturally, he decided to improve on the original design of the model by adding new features like a headphone jack and wireless charging capabilities.
He also expanded his device’s internal storage space of 16GB to 128GB, whereas it would take about US$100 to make the upgrade via Apple.
Now, Allen has compiled all that he has learned into a 30-minute tutorial. If you’re intrigued about what goes into an iPhone, and are keen to build one on your own, watch it below. There’s also a step-by-step guide that Allen has uploaded online.
Fair warning, the process might get quite challenging, and if you don’t have the patience, fret not. Apple has just brought the prices of its iPhones 7 and 8 down to just US$449 and US$599 respectively.
