An engineer has dared to open and remove parts from his iPhone 12 to convert it into a new model that has two ports with which you can charge it. Actually, he did not do it to be able to charge both at the same time, but to add a new USB-C port to test it before anyone else.
Since Apple has not yet taken the step of bringing a new iPhone with USB-C, this engineer decided that he wanted to have it, so he modified his device to have two ports. The Lightning that he already came with and a new USB-C port.
He has done it with his iPhone 12 Mini and he has subsequently published a video on YouTube so that we can see what his creation looks like, as well as showing us step by step how he has achieved it.
This is what the new converted iPhone looks like
The user Hyphaistos3672 has gone ahead of Apple with the modification of this smartphone to convert it in one with two ports. In the video, you can see the additional connection on the base, added to the Lightning port. As you can see, it’s much cooler than we could have imagined, and best of all, it works.
To achieve this, he had to Completely disassemble your iPhone 12 Mini, place a hole in the base where the new port would go, add it and connect it to the two connections that are connected to the hardware. Afterwards, he has had to put it all back together. Although on paper it sounds simple, it is not at all. We assume you wanted to keep the old port to use both instead of just replacing it. The result is not only impressive, but also works.
has been able charge your mobile both with a port as with the other. It is not an invention designed to use both ports at the same time, but to add a new port and decide which one to use. The loading speed does not seem to have suffered with the change. Headphones could also be connected through one port while charging with the other.
Will the iPhone 15 finally arrive with USB-C?
This new invention comes at a very good time, when the company is receiving more and more pressure from the European Union to regularize their situation in their new models, which must come with a USB-C port if they want to be distributed in the European market. India also has the same intentions, so the brand will have no choice but to give in. Like it or not.
In previous statements, he has assured that he would, in fact, it is most likely that we will already see it in the new devices that the brand presents this year, but until now we have not been able to see any official iPhone presented by the brand with this new port. . Surely, when they do it, it will be thinking about how to charge your battery, taking care of it so as not to have to change it soon.
As we can see, there are more and more people wanting to see it to the point of creating it themselves, as has been the case. We won’t have to wait long, most likely the iPhone 15 come with this new charging optionalthough we are not yet clear how it will do it.
