    I currently have a gold iPhone 6 Plus, and have been wanting to swap out the screen in order to have a gold/black phone. Just wondering what the best price on a certified replacement is?

    TIA

    I know this is *not* what you are asking for but I would caution you on doing -outside of Apple- screen replacements. I just have seen a few of these go bad/have persistent touch issues and then the warranty is voided.

    Good luck and ignore my comment if you are an expert in this.

    Try e-bay to be honest, people sell all parts for iphones, and price will vary by quality.

    Nah not an expert, and I was intending more for real apple replacements anyway, I see that wasn't quite clear in the OP haha

    Honestly, Apple. $129 and your warranty remains intact.

    Can I buy it and install myself, or do they insist on doing it?

    I would assume they insist on doing it. Apple is the only one with OEM parts for these phones (that I am aware of).

    Third party parts for the 6/6 Plus are not yet available at decent prices yet.

    Apple does not sell parts (other than removable batteries from older Macs) and will not customize your phone with another color display.

    You will have to stick with your white/gold home button though. The touch id sensor is paired with your phone, you can't simply swap with another one.

    I think a gold phone with a black face, and a white home button would look awful.

    Rough photoshop but this is what you would end up with.

    That's actually good photoshop! Yeah I think if I were ever to do it I would have to sacrifice Touch ID and just keep my old setup if I changed my mind later.

    Why don't you look for an Overlay for your phone to get the scheme that you want? Worth a shot no ?

    Could be worth a shot, any recommendations?
