iPhone 6 Camera Fix

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus aren’t just bigger than any previous iPhones, they also feature a completely overhauled design that is easily the most polarizing iPhone design Apple has ever created.

With that out of the way, it looks like there is indeed a solution to help improve the camera lens design on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and it also allows the phone to sit flat on a table without the need for a case. All you need to do is use a high-powered grinding machine to rip the sapphire crystal and metal off of the back of your phone.
