Have you ever had one of those days when you wake up and you just have too much money in your wallet or purse? No? Me either, but if you are an iPhone 5 or an iPad mini owner and fancy owning something that none of your friends have or will have seen before then a new color modification service could turn that current-generation iDevice into a modern day work of art that stands out from all other hardware on the market.

It should be common knowledge by now that Apple has started using an anodizing process on their latest iOS devices in order to get the slate and silver effect on the hardware, and it’s pretty much that exact same process that has been adopted by AnoStyle LLC to bring a little bit of personalization to each device. Rather than make do with a Black & Slate or White & Silver iPhone 5, users can now fork out a relatively affordable $249 to change the rear and trim the appearance of the device.

The iPhone 5 AnoStyle modification allows for a choice of either red, pink, yellow, orange, blue, teal, green, violet, gold, copper, bronze or blue steel, with the iPad mini offering the exact same color choices for both the black and white variants should the user desire, but is a little more pricey at $299. Rather than actually painting parts of the device or replacing individual external elements with fascia plates to offer a new color, AnoStyle goes down the professional process of anodization that involves using chemicals to invoke the desired color change.

One of the main benefits of choosing this method of colorization over things like painting or spraying the device is that it isn’t prone to chipping or peeling, thanks to the chemical reaction that happens within the metal. The business of customizing iOS devices is becoming an increasingly lucrative industry of late, with more and more companies popping up that offer services such as Color Labs and panels replacements, but it seems that anodization is definitely one of the more accepted methods of changing the appearance of Apple’s latest devices.

If owning a black and gold iPhone or a white and red iPad mini has been one of your dreams for the last couple of months, then the reality of that fantasy is only $249 away.
