Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Apple won't make a USB-C iPhone, so a robotics engineer created their own [Video]”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rumors about a USB-C iPhone aren’t new. Ever since Apple started switching its USB-A ports on the Macs and Lightning ports on iPads to USB-C, people started thinking that would be only a matter of time until the company followed the same path with the iPhone.

So far, we still use Lightning cables on iPhones but a robotics engineering student claims to have created the first USB-C iPhone in the world.

Ken Pillonel, an engineering student posted a short video on YouTube called “World’s First USB-C iPhone.” There, he shows not only an iPhone X with a USB-C port charging, as transferring data, and, finally, how he managed to switch the ports.

This is it. I’ve finally built the World’s First iPhone with a USB Type-C port. It supports charging and data transfers. The first part was about getting the electronics to work. Then the next step was to reverse-engineer the Apple C94 connector and make my own PCB with a female USB C port. Then the schematics for the project were set and tested and the final was to make it fit inside the iPhone!

Pillonel says he will publish the full-length video of how to create this mod soon. Even though, it’s nice to see someone who was able to switch the Lightning port for USB-C, which, by now, would be way simpler for users who want more and more a single cable for all devices.
