iPhone X with USB-C port sells for ₹64 lakh at eBay auction
Created by engineering student Ken Pillonel, the USB-C iPhone X was unveiled in October and instantly captured the imagination of iPhone users champing at the bit for a more modern connector, AppleInsider reported.
Pillonel released a video explainer of the build in early November and, as expected, the process was more than a simple parts swap.
The final result was put up for auction on eBay with bids quickly soaring north of $85,000, the report said.
Pillonel guarantees that the iPhone is functional, but warned against restoring, updating or erasing the device. Further, he said the buyer should not use the heavily modified iPhone as their primary device and stipulated that its case not be opened.
