iFixit tears down the iPhone 8 and reveals similarities to the iPhone 7


  • Jason

    Say what you will about Apple but they do make easy to repair phones

    • Syaz

      Agreed. The first time I took apart an iPhone, I was super impressed by how they were laid out inside.

    • It’s Me

      Definitely not a hot mess.

    • ciderrules

      Essentially it’s repairable.

    • h2oflyer

      You guys definitely have to keep your day job.

      Iphone 8 is not easy to repair sorry.
      Many are worst but its far from easy to repair.

    Also, sky is blue…water is wet… 😀

    It’s also using Qualcomms new gigabit modem X16. This modem also has the latest WiFi and Bluetooth 5 on board as well. Apple was telling everyone they were dropping Qualcomms modems. Yet they are using Qualcomms modems again. I guess they had to especially since Qualcomms manufacturing is using 10 nm. Intel’s modems are 14 nm currently. Plus Qualcomms have the latest Bluetooth 5. Intel’s don’t.

    Ultimately this should add more flame to the lawsuit between Apple and Qualcomm.

    • ciderrules

      Lies. Apple never once stated they were dropping Qualcomm modems.

    • It’s Me

      What is wrong with you that compels you to make up stories to justify your obsessive hatred of Apple?


    • John Lofwire

      They also reduced the modem performance in iphone 8 because its not as fast for downlink ect.

      Look like apple troll are trying to comment… cant see them as i blocked them lol.

    Using the the Note 8 as a comparative figure to the iphone 8 in battery size is a bit of low blow… I mean they’re even close to being the same size. It’s like saying this Yaris doesn’t have a lot of storage space. The Dodge Caravan has much more.

    • John Lofwire

      They could had made the phone like 1-2 mm thicker and almost double the battery size.
      but its would had cost a bit more $ so apple wont do it 😉

    • canucks4life

      How about OnePlus 5 then also 3300 mAh?

    • Zbiba

      still not even close to the same size. I’m not saying the battery size is as big as it could be for a phone its size (I mean iPhone 8+ vs OnePlus 3T clearly shows that it’s not just the size of the device).

      I’m just saying that adding this is a very inept comparison to draw as the two devices are completely different. if anything even the S8 with its 3000 mAh battery would have been closer, or even better a Moto E4 which has a 2800 mAh and has about the same size.

  • Can’t Fix Stupid

    Bottom line battery and screens remain reasonably replaceable which is the 2 biggest needs to get inside the phone. The back glasses are likely to be busted and remain so on these by those that always seem to have a busted screen no matter what phone they have.

    And yes, it is important to some people that a phone be reasonably repairable.

    • Do Do

      “And yes, it is important to some people that a phone be reasonably repairable.”

      Yes, of course, it’s your property and if its meant to be disposable then it should cost one 10th the price. Although I wouldn’t use the word “reasonable”. It can be done of course and it’s easier than some but it doesn’t need to be nearly that difficult, and you’re still using non oem parts if you’re doing it yourself and aren’t “authorized”
