I’m not sure why anyone would really wanna do that, but the iPhone is a status symbol after all and having the latest-generation model is the only thing that matters of some.
So yes, using this very simple adapter that you can purchase online for as much as 3 bucks you can turn an older iPhone into a fake iPhone 11 Pro, making all your friends jealous thinking that you just spent another $1,000 on Apple’s newest and smartest.
This thing that I called an adapter is actually a fake camera sticker that attaches to the back of the iPhone, making the camera bump on an older iPhone look like the one on the iPhone 11 Pro.
iPhone X and iPhone XS support
This is pretty much the only thing that needs to be changed on the iPhone X and iPhone XS to make it look like the latest-generation device, as Apple hasn’t been too keen on tweaking the looks of the phone. More upgrades are obviously under the hood, but given that what we’re talking about here is a thing that only matters in terms of image, hardware improvements are probably useless for you anyway.
This rear camera sticker can be used on iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, and it goes without saying that it gives no bump in terms of camera performance or anything like that.
At this point, it’s hard to tell if this camera sticker can survive the wear in the long term, but at that price, you really can’t expect it to be super-durable.
If you’re into this kind of stuff, I’m pretty sure that spending $3 isn’t such a big deal, especially because at the end of the day, everyone will probably be super-jelly for not having the money to purchase the latest iPhone. Just like “you did,” that is.
