As you can see in the image at the top of this post, Apple’s new Product Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are absolutely stunning. The anodized metal looks fantastic in red, making this the perfect sixth color for Apple’s flagship iPhone lineup. Well, it’s almost perfect. When you flip the new red iPhones over you’ll see that the front is white instead of black. Product Red devices have a red and white theme, but to put it plainly, it’s ugly. Red and black look a hundred times better — in fact, people have actually been doing part swaps in order to get a black front on their new red iPhones.

Instead of voiding your warranty and ruining the water-resistance on your new Product Red iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, we’ve got another option for you: slap on a SPARIN iPhone 7 Screen Protector for $8 or a SPARIN iPhone 7 Plus Screen Protector for $14. Problem solved!

Well… almost. SPARIN’s iPhone screen protectors will make most of the front of your iPhone black. You’ll still see a little while around the perimeter of the face, which is actually pretty cool-looking. What’s not quite as cool-looking, however, is the fact that your home button will still be white. This will be a deal breaker for some people, but it’s really not so bad.

Here are a couple of photos from a blogger at Verge who used this screen protector to “fix” his Product Red iPhone 7 Plus:
