    Does anyone know if Apple will just sell you the back glass or do they require to install it as well?

    I was wanting to get one to take the black paint off and have a transparent back.


    Thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty sure Apple will not sell the back glass without installing it. You should call them and ask. Let us know what they say.:cool:

    Or what if you brought it in without a back and said you dropped it and shattered it?

    Even if you shattered it, how would it come off? They would think you took it off

    Warranty voided.

    If you want a transparent back it will be easier to just buy an aftermarket part of eBay or similar. I just bought a Brushed metal back replacement of eBay and it's perfect. I didn't even need a screwdriver, I just used the pointy end of a sharp knife to undo and tighten the screws.
