In a fantastic DIY hack, an iPhone X was retrofitted with a working USB-C connection

The video shows the phone with its modified charging port which manages to recognize a MacBook USB-C charger as a power source and also handles data transfer when connected to the laptop. The marvelous feat required reverse-engineering Apple’s C94 connector which allowed Pillonel to create a custom PCB with a female USB-C port.

Apple’s refusal to make the conversion to USB-C on its phones does not mean that all consumers are out of luck. Ken Pillonel, a robotics master’s student at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), transformed a conventional Lightning-equipped iPhone X into the first Apple smartphone with a USB-C connector on his own. After a few months of work, he was able to do so and just released the finished product in a YouTube Shorts video on his channel.

The initial concept was too large to fit inside the phone and required months of tinkering until the component was able to fit inside the iPhone enclosure and work properly. A full video detailing the process is in the works and will be posted on YouTube. Apple releases iOS 15.0.2 and watchOS 8.0.1 Apple releases iOS 15.0.2 and watchOS 8.0.1
