It’s not the first time we’ve heard about iPhones that have been modified. This has, in fact, been a thing for a long time. Some changes are as simple as changing the body of the iPhone to something that isn’t natively available, such as an original design or hues. There are more “advanced” mods that can also light up the iPhone’s Apple logo at the back, and there there are some mods that are even more impressive. That is exactly the situation with Yang Changshun’s iPhone 13 Pro Max hack. Apparently, he wasn’t happy with Apple’s offering and decided to modify it into a whole new thing. Some users are calling his modified iPhone as iPhone 13 Pro Max Ultra.
According to the reports, Yang changed some components of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. As a result, performance was improved and battery life was doubled. The new model was revealed in a lengthy 37-minute video posted to the user’s Weibo account. The video goes into great detail on the adjustments made to a normal 13 Pro Max.
Mr.Yang added two built-in automatic speed adjustment cooling fans along with a double-layer motherboard. He’s used thermal paste to fill it. As a result of this engineering, AnTuTu performance increased to 870,244 points. For comparison, “non-modified” iPhone 13 Pro Max units can sell for up to 715,809. As a result, the iPhone 13 Pro Max Ultra offers a significant performance gain.
There is also a new battery, and therefore, the device had its battery backup doubled. Worth noting, that the Pro Max is already one of the best iPhones when it comes to battery life. Now, Yang has a unit with an even more impressive battery backup
AN IPHONE 13 PRO MAX WITH USB TYPE-C AND 3.5 MM HEADPHONE JACK
The last add-ons were a USB Type-C interface and a 3.5 mm headphone jack to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. These additions won’t affect the function of the existing lightning interface and worked seamlessly in the modified 13 Pro Max. Obviously, the level of modifications made in this project, shows that Yang has deep knowledge in the area. Obviously, this can’t be simply done if you don’t have soldering and engineering skills. to say the bare minimum.
Despite the USB-C adoption as the new standard, Apple keeps reluctant on adopting it on iPhones. This can change in the future, as there are laws trying to “convince” companies to use a universal charging standard. When it comes to the 3.5 mm headphone jack, it’s interesting to see that some iPhone users still miss the old port.
We don’t know exactly what will be the fate of the 13 Pro Max Ultra. Maybe Yang will sell it in a near future to earn a lot of money. After all, back in 2021, an engineering student Ken Pillionel amassed around $86,001 after selling, in an auction, his iPhone X smartphone with a USB Type C port.
