Conversion kit turns your iPhone 5S into the GTA V iFruit phone

first_imgChances are if you’re a PS3 or Xbox 360 owner you’ve already picked up a copy of GTA V based on just how well the game is selling. And that means you’ve also been using the iFruit phone, the smartphone we first saw as part of a pre-release poster for the game being held by a bikini-wearing young lady.Well, it didn’t take long for someone to come up with the idea of recreating the iFruit phone in real life. And if you own an iPhone 5 or 5S, you can now “upgrade” it to be an iFruit handset.The idea and necessary conversion kit has been produced by UK company Mobile Fun. They have created a vinyl skin that fits over your existing Apple smartphone to give it that authentic GTA V iFruit look. Each skin is cut to sit perfectly over either the iPhone 5 or 5S, and adds no more than 1mm of thickness to the handset. It also forms an extra layer of protection against scuffs and scratches.Converting to an iFruit phone isn’t exactly expensive, either. $12.99 plus shipping will secure you a skin for either smartphone. Combine it with the iFruit iOS app Rockstar released to complement the launch of GTA V, and you’re as close as you are going to get to the in-game iFruit version.I’m guessing there’s going to be quite a healthy market for these skins. Apple has already sold over 9 million new iPhones since the 5S launched last week, and GTA V managed $800 million in sales over its first 3 days. The GTA V-playing consumer who also owns an iPhone 5S must number in the many tens of thousands already.last_img
