iPhone 8 Screen Repair Services
If your iPhone 8 screen has fallen victim to screen cracks, glass shatters, or an unresponsive operating system, don’t lose hope! The PTC team are Australia’s go-to experts in iPhone repairs and offer both in-store services at over 60 locations and at-home service and repair jobs for those who can’t get in to see us.
Here we’ve summarised the need-to-know information about safely and effectively handling an iPhone 8 so you can get your screen replaced and back online as soon as possible. With some customers asking whether or not they can replace their own iPhone 8 screen at home, we’ll touch on some good to know information about online DIY kits that may help you decide whether an at-home hack job is the right choice for you.
The Process Behind iPhone 8 Screen Replacements
The iPhone 8 boasts a Super Retina HD display that brings your phone to life–that said, beneath the glass surface is a highly sophisticated internal structure that works as part of a host of internal and external parts that make your phone operational. From an internal digitiser to your phone’s OLED panel, the entire hardware and software ecosystem that make up an iPhone is a highly detailed one.
Grasping this complexity is one of the first things we talk to new customers about. Why? Because understanding the detailed and complex nature of iPhones can help clients appreciate why a professional screen replacement is often the best course of action to bring their phone back to life. What can seem like a simple task of “just replacing the screen” often involves far more than changing a glass panel and is a job that usually requires specialist skills and tools to get it safely and effectively done.
Where and How to Get Your iPhone 8 Screen Replaced
If your iPhone 8 screen is cracked, shattered, or otherwise compromised, it’s high time you considered a screen replacement. If this sounds like you, here are the three common solutions most iPhone users will pursue:
- Going Back to the Provider: heading to the Apple Store or an Apple Authorised Service Provider is a reliable first port of call. That said, working with the Apple store or an Authorised Service Provider is often the most expensive and time-consuming option–especially if you’re out of warranty.
- Working with a Third-party Repair Team: PTC is a third-party repair group. Speaking for our own services, our technicians have the skills, tools, experience, and parts to safely and effectively replace iPhone screens often more affordably and faster than the Apple Store. (Better yet–we offer a warranty on all of our screen replacement jobs!)
- The last solution that some clients spring to as soon as they face a crack in their phone screen is a DIY kit that will help them repair or replace their screen at home. Thinking about going this route? Read on about the risks inherent in trying to replace your screen alone.
The Realities of DIY iPhone Screen Replacement Kits
Thinking about a DIY screen replacement kit? While there are numerous repair kits available online, we always recommend pursuing this option with extreme caution.
The iPhone 8’s screen requires careful handling to replace effectively and safely. Though unintentional, one misstep could lead to further damage, and as mentioned above–the entire internal and external ecosystem that makes up a functional iPhone is an intricate and interrelated one. Unless you’re confident in your technical abilities to safely replace your iPhone screen, we usually recommend leaving it to the professionals.
