User Adds USB-C Port To An iPhone, Puts It Up For Sale On Ebay

As Apple continues to deny us a USB-C equipped iPhone despite having it on most iPads and Macs, one user took it up on himself in a DIY project.

Engineer by profession YouTube user Kenny Pi modified an iPhone X to add a fully working USB-C port to his device, making it the first iPhone ever to have a USB-C port. The custom USB-C port not only charges the device but also supports data transfer, which means you can use it to backup your iPhone to your computer or for transfer of data.

Adding a USB-C to a Lightning port equipped iPhone X was not an easy task, as it involved getting access to lots of parts, reverse engineering, fitting and testing. However in the end Kenny was able to achieve what he set out for and documented it in a YouTube video for all of us to see.

You can watch the complete video that explains the whole process below.

In another video Kenny Pi has announced that he is selling the first ever USB-C equipped iPhone to the highest bidder on Ebay. So if you are interested in buying this unique iPhone, you can give it a shot.
