Easy IPhone Color Prank

Introduction: Easy IPhone Color Prank

About: I try to make the details simple and the simple detailed. I also do semi-professional pet portraiture. All of my instructables are certified parent approved.

Hello, Everyone! Do you know people who like to get on your iPhone without permission? Well this is a great prank to play on them. It is very easy, very free, and very fun! Let's get started!

You will need:

An iPhone

A photo editor with an invert tool

Yup, that's it!

Step 1: Get Ready

First you will want to make a new background for your phone.

In the photo editor of your choice, open up a picture that you like. Edit it in whatever way you wish, then add in using the text tool, "Facial Recognition Failure, iPhone will be inverted for maximum inconvenience", or something to that effect. Set this as your background.

Next, open your lock screen picture up in the photo editor and invert the colors (and whatever else you would like to do to it). Set this as your lock screen.

Step 2: Get Set

Now we need to go to settings. Go to general>accessibility and move the slider next to "invert colors".

Step 3: Go!

Now wait for someone to try to mess with your phone and laugh out loud as they try to figure out what on earth is going on!

Note: sorry about my less than par people drawing skills... Still in the learning process for human art.

Step 4: How It Works

Basically, when you invert the color scheme, the already inverse image on the lock screen becomes normal again, so no one will suspect that you set this up (unless they notice the inverted lock screen clock). Have fun! Keep on makin'!

    Not very much of a prank... The invert colors was made for colorblind people...
