World’s first USB-C iPhone sold on eBay for $ 86,000

Published

An eBay auction ended selling a modified version of the iPhone X with a fully functional USB-C port. Swiss Federal Polytechnic student Ken Pillonel called the lot the world’s first USB-C iPhone and a great collection for any Apple fan.

The buyer received an iPhone X with 64GB of storage, as well as a 30-minute consultation with Ken Pillonel in case he had any questions about the hardware. Pillonel said the modified iPhone X is “just a prototype” and does not guarantee that it will work properly in certain scenarios. The purchaser should not restore, update the system, or erase data from the device, as this may damage the device.

For everyone else, the creator of the modification published an instruction in which he clearly showed how you can remake your own smartphone in this way. The entire project is also described in a detailed instruction on GitHub for those who decide to modify the iPhone on their own and install a USB-C connector into it.

Ken Pillonel added that he will continue to experiment and hinted at adding a USB-C connector to the AirPods.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max performed great, but still fell short of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.  The autonomy of the novelty is slightly lower

Considering that the iPhone 13 Pro Max easily put any flagship of last year on the shoulder blades, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is unlikely to disappoint anyone with its autonomy.

If you look at the results in more detail, then there is some noticeable difference just in points for autonomy: 151 points for the new model versus 156 points for the previous model. In more familiar terms, this is 2 days 17 hours and 2 days 20 hours of work in the source test. At the same time, the devices are charged almost identically.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

It seems that despite the fact that the line of smartphones Pixel 7 is not very different from its predecessors, Google believes that they will sell very well.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

The search giant has reportedly ordered 8 million new-generation devices and expects to double sales of new models relative to the Pixel 6 line.

At the same time, we recall that just the other day we learned that in six years Google has sold only 27.6 million Pixel smartphones. That is, the company intends to sell almost 30% of the total number of smartphones sold over six years only for older Pixel 7 devices.

It is also reported that the company has ordered 4 million lower class models, i.e. Pixel 7a models. In total, it turns out 12 million smartphones per year, or almost 45% of the total number of smartphones sold in six years.

We’ll find out how Google’s forecasts come true in about a year, but we can recall that at one time the models of the Pixel 6 line showed a multiple increase in sales relative to their predecessors.

However, the situation is not yet completely clear. Initially, the information was shared by a German thematic resource, and then it was repeated by many others. But the fact is that all models of the P50 line really disappeared from the German Huawei website, however, they are on the Huawei websites of some other European regions.

There are no official comments from Huawei itself, and therefore it is impossible to form a final picture. Perhaps Huawei has begun the process of withdrawing flagship devices from the global market, but it’s just that the changes have not yet been introduced on all regional sites.
