According to a report by AppleInsider, Ken Pillonel has a background in electronics and studied for a master’s degree in robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, EPFL. This means that not everyone can make this change on their device.
In the video, it is claimed that after making the changes, the phone is able to receive power through the connection, as well as transfer data over a USB-C cable. Ken Pilonel reverse-engineered Apple’s C94 connector to make a PCB with a USB-C port. To fit this, he started working on shrinking it and installing it on the iPhone.
