iPhone 3G torn down and turned into must-have Apple wall art
Grid Studio, the company that upcycles old iPhones and turns them into must-have Apple wall art have torn down the iconic iPhone 3G, showing off each original component mapped out on a print, creating a truly fascinating decoration for any Apple enthusiast’s home or office.
The Apple Post has received the GRID® 3G — Grid Studio’s disassembled iPhone 3G frame — to take an in-depth look at the handcrafted piece, which features an original device laid out in all its glory on a white backdrop – showing everything from the plastic back casing, 3.5-inch touchscreen, battery, volume buttons, and more.
The frame features a synopsis of the iPhone 3G, as well as a Steve Jobs signature with one of his memorable quotes around the internals, that are laid out with the names of each component for all to see.
Grid Studio specializes in creating must-have artwork for technology fans by carefully disassembling classic Apple devices, including the very first iPhone and first-generation Apple Watch, and turning them into incredible pieces of art which feature all the individual components of the original devices, all perfectly laid out and framed.
This isn’t the first GRID Studio frame that The Apple Post has received. We have also taken an in-depth look at the GRID® 4 deconstructed iPhone 4 frame which, like the GRID® 3G, is equally as well put together for a nostalgic step-back to the Steve Jobs days of Apple, again featuring the individual components of the original device with detailed mapping to label all the various internals.
The Apple Post has also recently received the GRID® 6 Plus — Grid Studio’s disassembled iPhone 6 Plus frame — featuring an original device laid out in all its glory on a white backdrop.
As with all frames from Grid Studio, the GRID® 3G comes wrapped in a luxe black gift paper with a ribbon, making it perfect to be sent as a gift. The shipping box itself is packaged perfectly, with protection in place to make sure the piece arrives safely and in pristine condition. Grid Studio even includes hooks to make it easy to wall-hang the artwork right out of the box.
GRID Studio offers a wide range of dissected technology frames beyond Apple’s product lineup, including grids for the super-retro Game Boy, Sony PSP, Google Pixel, and more. The studio also creates resin chip frames and collectable pin badge sets. You can find the full range online here.
