If you love one Apple product like the iPhone, chances are you own other electronics made by this company. This multinational giant makes their tech devices sync in such a way that they all look like they are a smaller or bigger version of each other.
The one small but obvious difference to Apple fans is the face on the laptops. All of the MacBook versions (Air, Prom and iMac) have the apple icon on the back. This logo lights up when you turn the computer on.
Unfortunately, the iPhones do not come with that function even though the icon is also found on the back. David Cogen, the founder of The Unlockr has found a way to make the iPhone light up like its big brother the MacBook. This tutorial only applies to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
You can update the look of your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus by making it light up just like the MacBooks.
When the iPhones were released many customers were disappointed their mobiles didn’t do the same function as the laptops.
You will need an iPhone light kit and tools to begin the change.
It’s important to remember that opening the iPhone voids the warranty. Cogen points out, if your phone is over a year-old, the warranty has expired anyways.
Turn off the phone.
You will need to unscrew the back of the plate off the phone.
Use the screwdriver from your kit to remove the two screws at the bottom of the phone.
These screws are on the side of the charging port of the phone.
The kit comes with a suction cup. Place it on the actual phone screen.
This is not meant to pull the whole phone off. It’s just needed to gently open the case. Instead use the pry tool to delicately remove the plate open.
It’s important to remember that the the two plates have connecting cables.
Only pry open the plate up to 90 degrees or the cables will break.
Unscrew the metal plate over the screen cables.
Not every screw is the same size, this will be important to remember when you are screwing the plate back.
Once you have done that you can gently disconnect the cables.
You can remove the long black battery. The battery is glued on so don’t poke it just work on it with the pry tool to get it off.
You can now insert the light kit. Place the LED light on top of the Apple logo.
Apply the tape that was there before. You can also put the battery back on. Don’t connect the cables right away though.
Use one of the sponges from the light kit and attach it to the light cable. It should look like the letter “t.”
Connect the cable to the connectors.
Use the electrical tape that is part of the kit to cover the cable.
If you avoid this step, the logo won’t light up.
