  • Someone hacked together an iPhone with a working USB-C port.
  • YouTube user Kenny Pi uploaded a video of the working iPhone to his YouTube channel.
  • Apple has refused to use USB-C in its iPhones, despite switching to the port on its MacBook and iPad devices.

Ever since the switch away from the big ol’ 30-pin connectors in the iPhone 4, every iPhone since has used Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector for charging and data transfers. But times have changed since then; the world has adopted USB-C as its connector-of-choice, and Apple is one of the only major holdouts still refusing to adopt USB-C for its most popular tech product.

If you want to see an iPhone with a working USB-C connector, YouTube user Kenny Pi has you covered. On October 9, Kenny Pi uploaded a video of a hacked-together iPhone X with a working USB-C port, which can be used for charging and transferring data.
