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.
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.
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.
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.
