SlickWraps may have the best iPhone skin we’ve ever seen

Published On April 5, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

I say that from a nostalgic point of view. Having been a Mac gamer since first sitting down at a Mac SE, then playing on an Apple II GS, LC II, PowerMac 6400 and onward, I’m used to seeing the Prince of Persia, Red Baron, and Myst inside a putty frame with that rainbow Apple accent. And now, thanks to SlickWraps, I can do the same with Fire Emblem Heroes.

Granted, the video may be a bit indulgent, but SlickWraps knows its target audience.

The Apple Retro Wrap creates its vintage appearance with a matte finish ultra-thin, durable skin that offers 360º protection from scratches and scuffs. It won’t help you much if you drop your phone, but it’s not like you would drop your Performa, right?

If you’ve tried skins before and had trouble with the installation, there’s no need to worry; SlickWraps has your back:

We understand accidents happen all the time. At SlickWraps, we care about your phone as much as you do. That is why we have a GOOF policy! Mess up the install, no problem! Just contact us within 30 days for a replacement.

Pretty cool. I just hope that next in line is a PowerBook 3400c skin, or perhaps one that creates the illusion of a translucent eMate! (Although I’d settle for a lime iMac.)

The Apple Retro Wrap is available now for iPhones 5 through 7 Plus at the appropriate price of $19.84. It’s a limited edition, however, so check it now if you’re interested. For more information, visit
