iFixit Drops DIY iPhone Battery Replacement Kits to $29, Matching Apple's Apology Price

· · Cool Stuff Found

iFixit has dropped the price of its do-it-yourself iPhone battery replacement kits to $29—or less—matching or beating the apology price for in-store replacement Apple announced Thursday. The price changes include kits for iPhone 4S, 5, 5s and 5c, too, all of which are not included in Apple’s price drop. iFixit made a point of noting that its DIY kits are available today, too, while Apple’s discount program won’t begin until some time in January. iFixit has been in a running war with Apple, criticizing the company for the low repairability of its devices, especially iPhones. Apple has chosen to emphasize slim form factors and tight tolerances over easy-to-repair designs.

iPhone X invisible face camera app

Mapping your face for Animoji is a pretty cool use for the iPhone X front-facing TrueDepth camera, but making your face disappear completely? That’s creepy, a little cool, and exactly what app developer Kazuya Noshiro did. He made an app that cuts out your face while leaving your eyes and mouth behind. It tracks your face in real time so whatever is behind you is always visible, and it’s pretty impressive if not a little unsettling. He hasn’t released his app, but you can see it in action on his Twitter feed.
