Remember: on October 17, we reported the feat of a handyman who managed to power his iPhone using the universal USB-C standard rather than the traditional Lightning port. Since then, success seems to have been there. Indeed, the mobile in question is now available on eBay. At auction. For the modest sum of … 100,000 dollars now, even more. Or the equivalent of more than 85,000 euros at the current exchange rate.
But be careful, because there are a few conditions. In fact, the buyer undertakes to:
- do not open the device
- do not use it daily
- do not restore, update or delete it
Otherwise, as the creator specifies, the “prototype”Could prove to be dysfunctional. Which would be a real shame, given that the iPhone X in question here is indeed capable of turning on, communicating and transferring files via its new socket. Note also that the article in question has 64 GB of memory and that it is black, with of course iOS as the operating system.
IPhone X Spec Sheet
For those who would be tempted by this nugget, the iPhone X offers a 5.8-inch Super Retina HD panel (2,436 x 1,125 pixels) and is compatible with the 4G network. It incorporates two 12 Mpx photo sensors on the back. One is a wide-angle lens with ƒ / 1.8 aperture, while the other is a telephoto lens with ƒ / 2.4 aperture. In terms of dimensions, the iPhone X measures 143.6 mm high, 70.9 mm wide and 7.7 mm thick: a format very similar to that of the iPhone 13 released a few years later. For a weight that is also almost equivalent: 174 g.
IPhone X is also protected against splash, water and dust. Certified by the IP67 degree of protection, it can thus remain submerged for half an hour at a depth of one meter. As for autonomy, it reaches up to thirteen hours in video playback or sixty hours in audio playback, according to official information provided by the manufacturer.
