Sometimes it can be hard to make your iPhone glow and stand out in a sea of iPhones. You can jailbreak the phone and then change all the icons, you can find a clever unique case, but beyond that, there’s not a whole lot to differentiate your iPhone from all the others.
Today though, I’m going to show you one of my favorite tweaks for making my iPhone stand out in a crowd.
You know how the Apple logo on a Macbook lights up when the screen is on? Well, using a small kit, we can make our iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus do the same thing. Needless to say, it catches people’s attention – especially while sitting in a dark bar – and garners a lot of “What the hell…” responses and it’s inexpensive to do, doesn’t affect the battery life of the phone, and isn’t terribly hard to do.
If you’d like to give it a try, I’ve put together a video on how exactly you can do it below. Please keep in mind, however, that this does require opening of the phone and that’ll void your warranty (if you’re phone is over a year old you are out of warranty anyway, but if not, keep that in mind). Also, this isn’t really for the faint of heart so please understand that you are performing this at your own risk and I am not responsible if you mess up the phone.
With the disclaimer out of the way, here’s how to make the Apple logo on the back of your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus light up like it does on a Macbook.
