Are you bummed you can’t seem to find the new gold iPhone 5S? Silver isn’t good enough and you want your phone “blinged” out?
You may have a few options.
The issue for the trendy tech fans out there is Apple’s new sole out so quickly that is now selling for more than $1,000 on EBay.
So, it was inevitable: Where there’s a shortage, some entrepreneur with a “Why didn’t I think of that?” idea steps up to try to fill that need.
If you go online, you can now find several wraps, covers, even stickers for iPhone 5S models that are gold in color.
While they’re definitely not as good as the same thing, some people might be willing to give them a try given their price tag. Some can be purchased for as little as $3.
They’re not difficult to find, either. A simple search for “gold iPhone skin” on Amazon should do the trick.
But watch out! Reviews on Amazon say some of these gold wraps can cut down on your single strength and others peel off too easily.
In some cases the hole designed to accommodate your phone’s camera doesn’t line up properly.
But if you absolutely want a gold iPhone and won’t take “sold out” for an answer, you do have a few worthwhile options.
Just remember – most people end up putting their iPhones inside a case anyhow.
As always, don’t waste your money.
