How to DIY Upgrade an iPhone From 16GB to 128GB of Storage

The YouTube channel Strange Parts shows how you can utilize Chinese markets to build amazing electronics. In this video the host takes you through the process of upgrading iPhone storage!

Via Motherboard:

The iPhone 6 costs $549 and comes with 16GB of storage. Customers who want to get more space have to pay Apple an extra $100 to go up to 128GB. What if there was a better, cheaper way?

It’s here that YouTuber Scotty Allen has spent time building his own iPhone 6 from the ground up. In his third video, Allen upgrades the phone from 16GB to 128GB. On paper, it sounds simple. “Basically just desolder the flash chip and swap it out with a fresh one,” but the actual process is more laborious—and more interesting—than Allen first imagined.
