ColorWare this week announced it has released a limited edition original iPhone skin for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

Over 10 years ago, Apple debuted their revolutionary iPhone. This product changed everything for mobile phone owners. The bar of expectations was risen to a point that changed the market forever. ColorWare would like to pay homage to this historical event by offering our Limited Edition Original iPhone skin.
ColorWare says its single-piece matte skins are made with genuine 3M vinyl, allowing for easier installation and a better final look.

The skins are available for $19 each in the United States for a limited time only. They are estimated to ship in three to five business days.

Does it have a blade mounted at the top? I can't tell you how many times I stuck my hand into my pocket and cut my fingertips on the headphone jack on my original iPhone.

I bought the dband too. Does you’d feel a little rough around the edges?

When I originally applied the skin, the edges were a little rough. I grabbed a hair dryer and smoothed the edges out via the included microfiber cloth. The edges are definitely more smooth now, so I would try the blow dry/microfiber cloth method again until it's less rough.

Reminds me of a pixel 2 panda. 'Cept reversed.

I actually like the look of the two tone with the Google Pixel 2, but it just doesn’t interest me to apply a skin to the back of an iPhone, I would rather have it come from the factory looking like the Pixel 2.

I don’t really get how this make it look like the original iPhone when it doesn’t have a black bar on the back.

Not sure why all the hate. I actually think it looks pretty cool. Reminds me of the 5th gen where I did something similar.


I, personally, am a huge fan of skins. Don't like the bulk of cases, but like protection from scratches. Have been creating various skins since the 4th gen. Here's what I'm currently using on the X

If I were into applying skins, I might go for one of their models, if it didn't require a hairdryer with hot air to apply.

This particular skin looks rather bland to me. I like the look of my iPhone X as it is.
Second on the above comment. Nothing should cover the original beauty of my gorgeous stunning radiant attention getter silver iPhone X and prevent it from attracting people attention to the best iPhone in the iPhone history up to date.
