A junk iPhone 5 board has been laying around the shop for months. Looking at it under the microscope, the two missing SMD components could be seen! (red circle to the right)
They were carefully de-soldered (red arrows point to where they used to be. Dime for scale) and transplanted from the donor board to the good board.
The area magnified in the photos above is outlined by the red box below to give you an idea of how small of an area I was working in. If you, or someone you know is interested in having their iPhone frame swapped from silver or space gray to something colorful, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote. Include the phone model and desired color in the message!
