The fully functional iPhone 6s developed by Allen features a working Touch ID as well as a functional 3D Touch. He has somehow purchased the home button and the logic board together. He has bought the used parts and recycled components from already used iPhones.

On Reddit, Allen says that he spent over $1000 to build the iPhone, but a huge part of this amount was spent on the extra parts such as unnecessary tools and replacing the broken components. However, he believes that the realistic amount that he has spent of this sum on building the iPhone 6s is close to $300. He had to spend a lot of time and money in order to procure the right components for his iPhone.
