  • Hello Hugh I was wondering were you able to find out whether you managed to finish to make the whole keyboard black yet ?

  • Hello everyone! I don't usually write comments, but I need some help. I was recently given an Apple Keyboard A1243, and I love using this for some reason with my Windows 10 PC. But the white keycaps don't really match with my setup and vibe. So I was wondering, can anyone help me find some black keycaps that are compatible? Would love to mod this keyboard and make it out of this world! Thanks :3

  • That's funny. I had the exact same idea around the time you must've made your video. I looked into it, and realized Apple slightly alters the key or clip dimensions for every new product, so no two keyboards have interchangeable keys. I still thought about just ordering a handful of different keyboard versions to try my luck, but even used Mac parts aren't that cheap. I've recently considered dyeing a white keyboard using Rit dye, but I'm not sure it's going to work, plus I kinda like having labels on my keys. I would love to see a video of someone attempting that, though.

  • Hey Hugh Jeffreys I’m a 14 year old boy and I am learning how to fix phones. I have learnt how to fix screen, replace cameras, and many more. But the thing I have not learnt is anything above iPhone X. Is there a chance where you can send me a iPhone X, Xr or anything above, but only if it is broken or has a problem. Please this will mean so much to me. Thank you
