ColorWare Launches iPhone 7 Plus Retro Edition With Vintage Mac Design for $1,899

ColorWare today introduced a customized iPhone 7 Plus Retro Edition that resembles the appearance of a vintage 1980s-era Macintosh for $1,899. It is a SIM-Free model with 256GB of storage, which normally retails for $969 in the United States. Orders are currently estimated to ship in 2-3 weeks.


The design includes a multicolored Apple rainbow logo and dark beige edge stripes painted over what is originally a Black colored iPhone 7 Plus. ColorWare said the iPhone 7 Plus Retro Edition will be available for a limited time only, and the first 25 sold will include a number of authenticity.

Details about the customization process:
At ColorWare, the product goes through a labor intensive process of disassembly, cleaning, masking, painting and inspection. Then, the product is buffed and reassembled. The product goes through final inspection and is packaged into the original packaging.
iPhone 7 Plus Retro Edition includes EarPods, a Lightning to USB Cable, a USB Power Adapter, and documentation in the box.

Looks very nice. Absolutely not worth the price, but it does look very nice.

Seems like you could get 90% of the same look by throwing a $10 case on a regular iPhone 7..

If they wanted to do a vintage Mac, they could have done the Mac Pro.... Although I guess that's essentially Jet Black.

No. Your opinion doesn't dismiss what somebody chooses to do with how their money is spent. And if somebody sees this fit as reformatting their iPhone To resemble a vintage piece from Apple, it's their decision and there is nothing wrong with that.

Totally buying one and throwing a case on it on day 1 to never look at it again.

I've always wondered how all these ColorWare things hold up through wear and tear.


Anything painted can be chipped or scratched through.

I'd imagine it probably holds semi comparable to the original paint.

One thing I did like about plastic phones is that they didn't usually show wear marks because the plastic was that color. So the color didn't tend to get damaged.

Would I pay $900+ for a paint job on my phone? No.

A phone is a tool. It will get damaged. Why invest additional money into the paint? It's just going to get beat up anyway. Unless you're going to put it in a case (which negates the paint job), or treat it like a delicate flower (which defeats the purpose of having a tool).

I actually like the look - but not for an extra grand....not even close. An extra $50 maybe.
