After leaving the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, iFixit As usual, did not wait long to dismantle these two smartphones. The specialist tackled the Gold models, and gave his verdict after a few strokes of the screwdriver: the new iPhone 8 is relatively easy to repair. However, compared to its predecessors, it is a little less so. Indeed, the rating of ?repairability? assigned to the iPhone 8 is 6/10 while, while it was 7/10 for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6S.
Overall, the various components of the iPhone 8 are easy to access. The task will be simple for those who want to replace their screen or their battery. Of course, you will need to get the right tools. On this last point, it is good to know that the pentalobe screws used to fix the internal panels of old iPhones are here replaced by ordinary screws. Good news for those who only have a Phillips screwdriver.
Furthermore, iFixit notes that the presence of wireless charging is a positive point, as it will allow users to limit the use of the lightning plug. Finally, the glass back of the phone remains a real problem since it is difficult to remove it without the risk of breaking it.
