At the end of November 2021, a young engineering student named Kenn Pillonel managed to sell a iPhone that I had modified so that it had a USB Type-C port instead of puerto lightning from Apple. Although the auction started at US $ 1, this phone caught the attention of many people, to the point that someone decided to pay US$ 86.000 for having this cell phone that is fully functional.
In view of the good reception that the first iPhone modified, another engineering student named Gernot Jöbstl decided to make a fairly similar one, only it will have a very interesting improvement: it will be completely waterproof. Through his YouTube channel, the young man has shown the development process and the difficulties he had to overcome to make the cell phone work properly.
As detailed by Unocero, a portal specialized in technology, the young man has decided to auction his curious creation, hoping that it will have the same or better acceptance than the phone that was sold for thousands of dollars in 2021. For his work, Gernot Jöbstl decided to use a iPhone X, a relatively recent model that Apple put on sale a few years ago and that is still in force.
Although the iPhone X with USB Type-C port (which will have a support made of carbon fiber to improve its durability) will be a fully functional phone, having been modified by personnel other than Apple, no warranty. In other words, you should think twice before paying thousands of dollars for this device, since those from Cupetino can release an update that makes it obsolete.
