When the iPhone 4 design first came out, the glass back panel was a bit of gimmick, but since then it seems that some users are fed up with it and therefore have covered it up with a sticker or something. However, why put a sticker over the glass panel, when you can completely replace it with wood! Yes these wood panels from Material 6 come with a special screwdriver that helps the user replace the glass with this nice looking wooden panel, what it does for reception though is not yet known.
These are the details for the wood panel back for the iPhone 4 & 4S;
Material6 was created by Matt Turner and Randy Lively – two Apple enthusiasts with over 30 years of custom fabrication expertise to enhance the already near-perfect iPhone 4 experience. The company was built out of a desire to enhance what they felt was an astounding and functional design that nonetheless lacked a certain warmth and durability that only organic materials can provide. After months of painstaking research, development and execution, we have developed a method for replacing the back panel of your iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with a hand-crafted and hand-assembled upgrade that provides all the original elements and features of Apple’s design with new benefits.
