Is it possible to build an iPhone?

Basically, I want to know if I could build one. Buy all the parts, some how put firmware and what not on it, and then put it together. Also, would it work with a simcard, or would I need some type of authentication?

"yes. i have already put three iPhones together, from cannibalized parts. all of them work up to this date.

as you need to put together original parts, you also doesnt need to load any operating system, or do any programing. everything is there.

its like LEGO. well, a wee bit tougher..."

"Cobbling together a bunch of old iPhones into a working one is one thing. Which is where most of the dialog here is about.

If you were thinking you could get the discreet parts and put it together thats really not possible.

I do wonder if it's worth it Vs buying a new one. Most of the parts sold as new would cost much more than a new phone. If you have a bunch of junkers that didn't cost much and you had the time and doggedness to do it then go for it!"

"This is possible but the most vital part you need is a genuine working apple logic board if you can't some how get the logic board you are good to go.

Its like disassembling a new iPhone than putting it back to gather but before assembling someone swaps every part besides the logic board.

You can find good replacement part for every thing under a $100 on eBay. But the logic board is everything and if it not genuine than your not going to run ios"

I started with my wife's old 6s plus that was dropped into the toilet wreck the screen when it first hit the side of the toilet. The was also damaged from being in the toilet for a few hours so I bought just about every part I could find on eBay as if it was a 6splus so I built one well actually I didn't the repair shop where I took it did. But I bought genuine parts from repair places or places that refurbish iphones. I spent $210 on my custom iPhone 6s plus. The one part that is not oem is the rear metal housing which is all flat black with a gold apple emblem. Works great I'm am using it now.
