Last week, Apple took us by surprise and revealed a red iPhone. Its stunning crimson color looks gorgeous, but in true Apple fashion, it left us wanting because Apple decided to include a white front instead of black. Weâ€™ve since seen some renders, but YouTuber Danny Winget took matters into his own hands and made a red iPhone 7 with a black displayâ€”and it looks awesome.
This is the red iPhone of our dreams, but lets get the bad news out of the way: this is neither easy nor cheap to do.
Swapping the displays isnâ€™t the only thing youâ€™ll need to do. Apple pairs iPhone Touch ID sensors with the logic board, which means if you donâ€™t swap logic boards, the home button will still work but fingerprint functionality wonâ€™t. The easier option would be just to swap home buttons, but then youâ€™d be stuck with a white home button on the black display for a weird combination.
