This isn’t the first USB-C iPhone, just the first with waterproofing. Unfortunately, it’s not the latest iPhone 13 model, but rather an iPhone X, created by Gernot Jöbstl. There is not tricky business going on inside the device, but its creator did mention that the wiring could be a little bit neater as well as having more polish on the chassis. Read more for a hands-on look at a water test.
One similarity to the first USB-C iPhone is that this waterproof version is also heading to auction, and considering the former sold for a whopping $86,000 USD, the latter might fetch slightly more. Aside from the bit of super glue on the exterior shell, the internals look a bit messy due to the fact that Jöbstl needed super glue to isolate the wiring. For those interested, the eBay auction goes live on January 19th.
