The world’s first USB-C iPhone isn’t made by Apple


Those looking to void their new iPhone 13’s warranty in a creative way could follow the example of Ken Pillonel: a robotics engineering student who has created the “world’s first USB-C iPhone,” before the European Union may force Apple to.

In something that should almost certainly come with a “don’t try this at home” advisory attached, Pillonel has managed to replace an iPhone X’s Lightning charger with a fully working USB-C port. The foreign connector works for both charging and data transfer.
