Do not think that changing the connector of the smartphone is very easy. To replace the USB-C port with the Lighting port, read the full electronics of the smartphone’s printed circuit to find an alternative solution. This little achievement makes you laugh, at a time when Europe is trying to commit itself Apple At Switch to USB Type-C

The worst part is it works

The Lightning port, once installed, manages to be fully functional and takes charge of the device charging and data transfer. On the other hand, it was not much interest … that, the young engineer questioned Engadget Knows this well:

“IPhone cables are protected, they can only charge Apple devices, so I had to figure out a way to deceive people into thinking that the cable was plugged into an Apple device. And the whole thing had to fit into the phone, which is another challenge. (…) Did not expect. It was fun, I wanted to see if I could do it.
