If the rumors are to be believed, Apple may need a future iPhone that’s completely free from ports. This implies that there’s a likelihood Apple would possibly skip USB-C and go straight from Lightning to portless. In fact it stays to be seen if that may occur, however that didn’t cease engineer Ken Pillonel from creating his own iPhone with a USB-C port.
The modified iPhone X was then placed on eBay for public sale the place it went up to as much as $100,000. Now in keeping with a report from Gizmodo, the public sale for the telephone has ended the place the successful bid was a staggering $86,001. Plainly there may need been some joke/troll bids as a result of there have been some bids over $100,000 that had been later retracted.
That being mentioned, $86,001 continues to be some huge cash and we’re undecided if the winner will really be prepared to pay that a lot for it, so there’s a likelihood this might fall by way of. Nevertheless, it’s a very fascinating and a really troublesome mod to drag off and it’s not nearly taking out the Lightning port and placing in a USB-C one.
In keeping with Pillonel, he needed to really reverse engineer Apple’s C94 connector and create a customized circuit board, whereas modifying the chassis to ensure it matches the USB-C’s barely bigger connector. Because of this a whole lot of work was put into it and perhaps the $86,001 price ticket might be justified.
