  • Where are you from?

  • Uh, from USA.

  • USA?

  • Yeah.

  • Very good.

  • I am trying to make my own iPhone.

  • Very good.

  • I was in a dimly lit barbecue joint, here in China.

  • I was with people like me - geeks who are fascinated by the electronics manufacturing scene.

  • And someone said, you know, you see all these cellphone parts in the markets.

  • I wonder if you can build your own phone?

  • I kept coming and going from China over the past 9 months,

  • and I couldn't get rid of this burning question:

  • Could I make my own cellphone?

  • Would people even sell parts to a western guy like me who hardly speaks any Chinese?

  • Ni hao.

  • Ni hao.

  • Um, iPhone 6S?

  • 4S?

  • 6S.

  • So, I did what any geek would do, and I dove in with both feet.

  • Coming to shenzhen is like visiting to the future,

  • but it's this crazy, dystopian, Bladerunner-esque future.

  • So to make an phone I think I need 4 pieces. I need the metal back - the shell the phone sits in.

  • I need a screen;

  • I need a battery;

  • And then I need the logic board, which is the circuit board that has the processor and the memory and things like that on it.

  • So, we're in a back alley behind the Xiamen(?) market

  • I'm gonna take a look at what available here.

  • Sometimes there are phone backs that are available for sale.

  • So, that was interesting.

  • I just went back to one of the booths and tried to buy one of the recycled backs, and I was successful,

  • but it's pretty dinged up.

  • Now let's head inside the main market, see if I can get a back that looks new.

  • I am not gonna be able to film with a big camera inside, but I'll be able to use my iPhone.

  • Oh, those are nice.

  • This, uh, iPhone 7 - Plus.

  • Yeah, those are nice - they don't have a logo.

  • She can maybe get it for tomorrow.

  • Just one?

  • I want this one for 6S.

  • This one?

  • Correct.

  • This one is 6S?

  • Yes, 6S.

  • How much?

  • Do you want the whole frame, or the whole set?

  • What I'm saying is,

  • Do you want this and this and this? Do you want the buttons?

  • Correct, correct.

  • How many do you want?

  • Only one.

  • Ah, one.

  • Only one?

  • This much.

  • OK.

  • You'll take it?

  • Yeah, I'll take it.

  • So that was a big success.

  • Pretty quickly, I was able to find a back that looks pretty new and pristine to me.

  • It doesn't have any of the laser markings inside it like the used one does,

  • and I need those for aligning some cables, and there's a patch where the antenna sticks.

  • But I think there might be a place that has a laser that can add those for me.

  • So I'm gonna go and see if I can find that.

  • I also found a bunch of really cool designs of different colours that don't look like anything Apple makes.

  • I looked around for a bit,

  • and I finally found this laser engraving booth tucked in a little cubby hole underneath the stairs.

  • Same, like a[n] original. Like whatever they normally do.

  • Yeah. So, Apple, the standard thing for USA?

  • Yeah, USA markings here?

  • I'm outside McDonald's and I'm waiting for Frank.

  • So, Frank, Frank's a buyer, [he] buys a bunch of different Apple parts in the markets

  • He's gonna help me buy the parts to build a screen.

  • So, what I wanna build, I'm building an iPhone 6S, right.

  • And I want to make the screen...

  • As much from scratch as we can, as much from parts.

  • So, if we put together a screen, what pieces do we need?

  • We need the glass;

  • The digitiser; the LCD; the backlight;

  • The OCA;

  • Yeah, that's the optically clear adhesive.

  • Yeah.

  • Isn't there like a touch sensor, for the force touch?

  • In the LCD.

  • Okay, so it's a part of the LCD.

  • This process needs to be made ... Without ... dusty? Or ...

  • Without dust?

  • Without dust.

  • Yeah. So it has to be very clean.

  • Yeah.

  • But they can do this here in the market, right, there are people who can do this?

  • We can go to the repair shop.

  • So, should we buy the parts ourselves first and bring it to the repair shop? Or should we have the repair shop ... provide it?

  • First, look at whether they're willing to do this for us

  • Yeah, can we buy all of the parts? We buy [the] phone glass, we buy the digitiser

Where are you from?
