Replacing Battery with Cracked Rear Glass?
I’ve reviewed the process for replacing the iphone 8’s battery. It looks very similar to the 6 and 6S i’ve done before. But there is a catch:
My rear glass is shattered. Can I still replace the battery? Or will trying to remove the battery/battery adhesive end up destroying the glass? Is the battery adhesive what is holding the glass together right now?
The previous phones I’ve opened for battery swaps were all undamaged, or only had front screen damage. I don’t want to take this phone apart and end up with half a phone and a pile of glass shards and dust.
