The iPhone X is a gorgeous piece of hardware. It is two pieces of glass sandwiching a stunning stainless steel band that exudes premium. Unfortunately, it only comes in two available colors, Space Gray (which is just Black) and Silver, but that’s why skins exists. And the latest one from Slickwraps turns modern iPhones into the original iPhone Steve Job’s announced over a decade ago.

Dubbed the Anniversary edition skin, it offers the classic two-tone look of the original iPhone. If you remember, the first iPhone came with an aluminum shell with a plastic area at the bottom to house the antennas. This delivered the two-tone look that has now become ubiquitous in Apple lore.

Slickwraps as well as other skin makers offer a wide array of optionst, be it leather, carbon fiber or matte finishes. But using the original iPhone schematic is quite ingenious on Slickwraps’ part. It’s super simple yet strikingly familiar.

Slickwraps is offering the Anniversary skin for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 and iPhone SE. That includes all of the Plus variants of those models. It is aimed directly at an Apple fans’ nostalgia, and you know, it is working. Those skins look fantastic.

The Anniversary edition skins for the iPhone are now available through Slickwraps’ site for $24.99.
