While the European Commission is trying to force Apple to abandon Lightning in favor of USB Type-C, ordinary users have decided to take matters into their own hands. One enthusiast took a few months and made the world's first iPhone with a USB Type-C connector.
Judging by the date of publication of the video on the YouTube channel Kenny Pi, work on the modification of the "apple" smartphone started about six months ago. It took the author a long time to make all the electronics work properly. For example, he redesigned the Apple C94 connector and made his own board with a USB Type-C port. It was a special challenge to fit it all into the casing of the device. However, the result was well worth it.
After all, the craftsman created an iPhone with a USB Type-C connector, through which you can charge the gadget and transfer data. In the near future the author promises to publish a detailed video about the process of modifying the iPhone, which will share the instructions for anyone who wants to repeat such a trick. It is important to remember that during such manipulations the owner of the gadget loses the warranty on it and there is a high probability of simply breaking the device.
