Bringing BACK The iPhone Headphone Jack - in China

  • Published on Sep 6, 2017

    4 months, 7 custom circuit boards designs, 3 disassembled iPhones later, it works. It's the first modern iPhone with a headphone jack - the only one like it in the world.

    I NEED YOUR HELP! Tell me what you'd like to see me do next in the comments! I'm really looking forward to exploring the back alleys of the industrial world outside of just cell phones and China. And if you think you have a really awesome idea, please email In particular, if you live somewhere cool (particularly India or Africa), I want to hear about the industrial world(markets/factories/mines/etc) where you live. And if you're an engineer in manufacturing, hit me up with that cool factory story you've been dying to have someone tell. Thanks guys!
