User has recorded the whole process in video
Apple fans around the world are waiting for the day when Apple will announce the transition to USB Type-C for its products, especially iPhones. A fan has put an end to this wait by installing a USB Type-C port on his iPhone X. The inventor is now calling it the world’s first iPhone with a USB-C port.
Needless to say, the iPhone’s Lightning port is replaced by a USB-C port. However, interestingly, the creator of the first of its kind product has managed to enable all the functionality on the new port. This means that the modified iPhone X can charge as well as transfer data through the port using a USB Type-C cable.
A glimpse of the unique iPhone can be seen in a short YouTube video titled “World’s First USB-C iPhone”. YouTuber Ken Pilonel, the man behind the making, shows in the video how his modified iPhone X charges using a USB-C cable. Pilonel also shows how the phone connects to the laptop for data transfer using the USB Type-C port.
A video posted recently on YouTube, seen by Apple Insider, shows a glimpse of the entire process. In the video, Pilonel mentions that he is currently editing the longer video. Once out, it will be able to explain how he managed to switch his iPhone X’s Lightning port to a USB-C port.
This is not the first mention of Pilonel’s project. He’s been trying to achieve this for months, posting video updates for the same amount of time. A video posted in May shows one such prototype, in which an iPhone can be seen charging and transferring data via a USB Type-C wire. However at this time, the assembly was too large to be embedded in the iPhone.
It seems that Pilonel did this with the video so that he had proof. This raises the question, when is Apple going to bring such a change to the iPhones? The company has started switching to the USB Type-C port for its iPad lineup. Now that Pilonel shows iPhones can be modified, will Apple take this as a serious option?
