Learn how to replace your iPhone 8 Plus screen. This part comes with the front facing camera, earpiece speaker, and EMI shield already installed, making for an easier repair. If your screen did not come with those things pre-installed, follow this guide instead.

All you need to do is remove the old screen and transfer the home button to the new screen, in order for Touch ID to function.

Note: If your iPhone’s auto brightness feature does not work properly after your screen repair, make sure your iPhone is updated to iOS 12. True Tone functionality is disabled after a screen replacement, even when using an original Apple screen.

    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.5 mm pentalobe screws from the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Opening the iPhone's display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

    what do I do about super stripped screws?

    Do you need a toolkit like the essential toolkit

    Adam Palmer - 답글

    Hi Adam. Having a tool kit with all of the listed parts above is best. The screw heads are very small and each set of screws needs a very specific type of driver to remove them without stripping any of them.

  2. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass. Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered. This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.

    • If the broken glass makes it difficult to get a suction cup to stick in the next few steps, try folding a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lifting the display with that instead.

    Tape doesn’t hold. suction cup doesn’t work. Tape folded over doesn’t work as a handle. I’ve used 3m’ s Gorilla duct tape. The glass is so shattered I cant get a point started to remove the glass. Phone has been in an otter box for years. dropped it and shattered glass while replacing case. Now what?

    When all else fails, you can superglue your suction cup (or tape) to the display, wait for it to cure, and pull.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I had issues getting the suction cup to stick on my cracked screen, so I tried using scotch tape (only tape I had around), but it didn’t work. This best thing I did was to forcefully pry the screen off (I wasn’t worried about damages because it’s already cracked) with the spudger. I think its best to find something stickier (like Duct Tape) and used that to lift up the screen.

    Definitely surprised how sticky the adhesive was.

    Jeffrey Robinos - 답글

    When using packing tape: the suction won’t hold well with the overlapping pieces, so add a square of tape where you want to put the suction cup, so it will provide an unbroken surface for the seal.

    Christa - 답글

    It’s amazing how a heat gun or hair dryer makes life easier to soften up the adhesive. Then use a thin iSesame opening tool to get in under the screen (start @ 90 degrees/vertical either side of the home button & slowly go horizontal) the need to use suction cups. Run the opening tool along the front and down both sides to cut the adhesive before trying to lift the screen.

    Cheers Wayne

    I didn’t have a hair dryer so I (gingerly) used an iron over some wet coffee filters (I mean , it is waterproof) . Then, quickly dried i off with paper towels, used gorilla tape and my fixit metal splunger . worked like a charm .

  3. Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the iPhone for about 90 seconds in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

  4. Apply a suction cup to the lower half  of the front panel, just above the home button. Be sure the suction cup does not overlap with the home button, as this will prevent a seal from forming between the suction cup and front glass.

    • Be sure the suction cup does not overlap with the home button, as this will prevent a seal from forming between the suction cup and front glass.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    Warning ! If you pull too hard (reheat the underside of the display again), you create an gap of air between the glass and the lcd display !

    When you replace the display assembly you end up with gray stains on the display.

    Result: you have to buy a new display (assembly).

    Arnoud - 답글

    Using just the single suction cup that is included in the battery replacement kit probably wouldn’t open the device. An iOpener and an iSlack should be the recommended method. However, you can get it open with just the single suction cup and iOpener, but does take a lot of time.

    Get an iOpener and iSlack with the battery replacement kit.

    I used a flat x-acto (#18) blade knife tool to gently pry back the screen enough to allow me to insert the pick near the bottom corner. I then worked the pick under the screen as mentioned in steps 5 & 6 below then. This worked really well for me.

    Kyle Luksa - 답글

    I used the suction cup without heating the phone - the adhesive came away quite easily without applying any heat. Maybe due to age of phone (nearly 4 years old). Worth trying.

  5. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case. Insert an opening pick or other thin pry tool a few millimeters into the gap. The watertight adhesive holding the display in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

    I got hold of a iPhone 8 Plus with cracked screen that I am planning to fix.

    Here is my problem:

    When I tried to take out the screen from my phone, (step 15-18) I was curious about the new screen, so I tried to connect it. It was completely dead! Then I tried the old cracked one, and suddenly that was dead to! This is a phone that some fool has been inside earlier and changed battery, but I suspect he has done some more really stupid things. The Taptic Engine is living its own life and vibrating every time I slightly touch the home button. (I have a new Taptic Engine) The phone is also full of dust and small particles that does not belong there. One tri-point Y000 screw (step 18) is even missing! Now the biggest problem is that both screens are black! I know the phone is on, because I hear voice command speak when I turn on the power. The screen worked before I tried to change it? And one last thing: My new LCD screen came with new flex cables. Is it possible to switch over, so I can use the old ones?

Has anyone found out any info about replacing the Apple iPhone 8 Front glass. Last I checked Apple had made it that if you install a non OEM screen and updates their phone, it will brick there phone. I have not been fixing any iPhone 8’s or iPhone x’s due to this. I So if someone knows if this has been resolved or if this still holds true can you please let me know. Also, Fixing back glass. From what I have seen they use some crazy glue. Does anyone have any methods on a easy way to replace back glass on the iPhone 8’s ? do you still basically have to gut the phone ? what kind of glue is used to glue it back on? Any help with these issues would greatly be appreciated I have been repairing phones for over 8 years + and turning away customers because apple is so dumb with these things upsets me greatly. I loved repairing iPhone up until this point. Help please.

Replacing the screen will not Brick the iPhone, although the 8/8Plus & iPhone X all have an issue with the Ambient Sensor when a new screen is fitted. Although a way around this is to use a EEPROM device to copy the firmware from the original screen. It is also rumored that Apple are fixing the Ambient Sensor issue in iOS 12.

Hi Payton,

I would check if the screen backlight was blown out. This commonly happens when you disconnect the screen without disconnecting the battery first. To check, “turn on” the phone as you have been. Shine a bright light directly at the screen, and see if the LCD shows anything. If it does, the LCD is working, but the backlight circuitry is broken.

This is the second ifixit screen replaced on my iPhone 8 Plus. Unfortunately, this second repair kit was a much lower quality that the first one, which was only one year prior. The screen is much lower quality with really poor contrast. It works, but it makes it look like a cheap knockoff phone now. Also, two bits in the included tool kit were too large to use! They are marked the same size as my previous kit, but they are definitely larger and will not fit into the tri-lobe or philips head screws. I ended up using the bits in my previous tool kit. Overall the quality of the components has definitely gone down hill, which is hugely disappointing.

No country code needed, Thats pure BS. I replaced mine… iPhone 8Plus in 25 minutes. The phone has no coded parts except the finger print sensor. If you remove the touch id button according to these instructions you’ll have no problem with this. BTW I have done dozens of screen replacements using parts from iFixit and have NEVER had a problem. If you’re careful and make sure you have the correct model numbers for your phone you’ll get parts that work perfectly. Also big thumbs up on the guide. Excellent instructions. But somebody should write up the part about installing the glue. That’s a tricky bugger. Always remember to leave the fine assembly plastic covers in place on the glue until your ready to assemble. Keeps the glue from sticking to your cables during the final re-assembly phases. The covers are split so they wont be difficult to remove once done.

Hi. Followed the instructions. Now when we switch on we get the apple symbol for a few seconds. Then it goes off and repeats. Any suggestions please? Thanks
