The only iPhone with a USB Type-C port in the world was sold for $86,000

The world’s first iPhone with a USB Type-C connection has been sold for $86,001 on eBay (approximately Rs. 63,97,000). The customized iPhone X, designed by engineering student and technology enthusiast Ken Pillonel, has complete data transfer and charging capabilities.

For iPhone models, Apple has always used its own unique charging port. Pillonel has shown that Apple may easily convert from its existing Lightning to Type-C port with its modified iPhone X.

Pillonel reverse-engineered the Apple C94 connector and created his own PCB board with a female USB Type-C port to make the USB Type-C port operate on the iPhone X. Then he created the project’s schematics, tested them, and installed the port inside the iPhone.

The owner of the lone Type-C iPhone must agree to a set of terms, including not restoring, updating, or erasing the device, not modifying or fiddling with the internals, and not using it as a daily driver.

The iPhone X features a large notch, Face ID, and an IP68-rated construction. It has a 5.8-inch OLED screen with Dolby Vision and HDR10 compatibility and a Full-HD+ (1125×2436 pixels) resolution.

It has dual 12MP rear cameras and a 7MP front-facing camera. An A11 Bionic CPU and a 2,716mAh battery with 15W fast-charging capabilities power the gadget.
