World's first modified Phone X with USB-C connector sold at auction

An eBay auction ended selling a modified version of the iPhone X with a fully functional USB-C port. Swiss Federal Polytechnic student Ken Pillonel called the lot the world's first iPhone with a USB-C connector and a great collection for any Apple fan.

The buyer received an iPhone X with 64GB of storage, as well as a 30-minute consultation with Ken Pillonel in case he had any questions about the hardware. Pillonel said the modified iPhone X is "just a prototype" and does not guarantee that the device will work properly in certain scenarios. The buyer should not restore, update the system or erase data from the device, as this may damage the smartphone.

For everyone else, the creator of the modification published an instruction in which he clearly showed how you can remake your own smartphone in this way. The entire project is also described in a detailed instruction on GitHub for those who decide to modify the iPhone on their own and install a USB-C connector into it.

Ken Pillonel added that he will continue to experiment, and hinted at adding a USB-C connector to the AirPods.
