“DIY” White iPhones

“DIY” White iPhones

A 17-year-old geek from Queens has turned the fervor for the unreleased white iPhone 4 into a six-figure business — enough to send himself to college, so long as he can stay out of trouble with the law.

So when Fei Lam, a high school senior and gadget nerd, got a tip about buying up some white iPhone 4 parts, he saw the opportunity to finally make his passion for electronics pay off.

You can see his work at http://www.whiteiphone4now.com/

If he sold them without the Apple logo it likely wouldn’t be as big of a problem, but it appears the parts may be directly from Apple’s factory (Foxconn) *and* they may be stolen. 17 year olds are running international supply chains now. This 17 year old is out-Apple’ing Apple 🙂


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
