For $13-26, these wraps can give you the iPhone design of your dreams

I previously wrote about Colorware’s $A2,510 gorgeous Retro iPhone 7, which is, indeed, gorgeous. However, the closest I’d get to owning a Retro iPhone 7 would be in my dreams, because of its insanely high price tag.

It was only a matter of time before someone came up with an affordable way to dress your iPhone in a classy and tasteful classic Apple Mac computer theme.

Slickwraps, a mobile accessories company, is seemingly bringing my dreams to reality. It makes $A27 wraps and $A49 cases for your iPhone that look nearly identical to Colorware’s Retro iPhone 7, but it also makes plenty of other designs for those out there looking for a different look than what Apple provides by default.

Slickwraps is just one of the many companies that make iPhone wraps. Check it out:

The star of this show is Slickwraps' iPhone Retro Wraps that give your iPhone a retro Apple Mac look.


It's complete with the rainbow Apple logo, and the simulated air vents on the sides.

Slickwraps' Retro Wrap is what it sounds like: It's a wrap that you apply over your iPhone's original design.

The Retro Wraps look nearly identical to Colorware's $A2,510 Retro iPhone 7 (below).


This is Colorware's Retro iPhone 7, not Slickwraps' cheaper retro iPhone wrap. Colorware's Retro iPhone 7 is a custom paintjob rather than a cosmetic wrap.

The wraps look gorgeous. Here's a similar angle of Slickwraps' Retro Wrap compared to Colorware's version (above).


Here's what it looks like from the front. It would look nicer with the white/silver iPhone models with the white home button, in my opinion.


Here's an Apple Mac II, where the inspiration for this 'Retro' design presumably came from.


Slickwraps' Retro Wraps are compatible with the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE, and even the four-year-old iPhone 5s.


The wraps themselves won't protect your iPhone from knocks and dents, but Slickwraps also offers cases with the retro design for $A49 if you're looking for something more protective.


The case is Spigen's Ultra Hybrid case with Slickwraps' retro design. Note that Slickwraps' retro case is a limited edition, and it's not clear how long it will be on sale.

It's also compatible with the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE, and the iPhone 5s.

And there are a bunch of other wraps from Slickwraps to customise your iPhone, like giving it a textured carbon look and feel.


Or a wrap that makes your iPhone glow in the dark.


There are a bunch of different colours, patterns, and textures to check out.


There's also another brand that makes similar wraps for iPhones called Dbrand.


Dbrand has a similar lineup of iPhone wraps, except for the Retro Wrap. Dbrand actually sells wraps for around $A13 compared to Slickwraps' $A26 wraps.

If you like the look of the (Product) RED iPhone that Apple recently released, you could get a nearly identical look for $13 instead of buying a whole new iPhone.


And if you didn't like the white front panel on Apple's Product (RED) iPhone, you can choose to get a black iPhone and add Dbrand's red wrap instead.

Dbrand also has a different colours and textures, too, like wood, leather, and brushed metal.

There are plenty of other companies out there that make wraps for your iPhone, so there's no shortage of designs for your iPhone.


Other companies that make wraps for iPhones include EasySkinz, Skinit, and DecalGirl -- just to name a few.
