Use the following picture guide to easily change the battery on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. You should make a backup of your iPhone before changing the battery and then turn it off.

Carefully slide the metal spudger along the other side to break up the adhesive holding the display in place. Be careful along the top edge of the phone and only loosen the adhesive, as you risk damaging the plastic clips holding the screen in place.

Step 4: Release Metal Cover

Step 6: Release Battery

Very carefully pull the black ends of the adhesives stuck to both ends of the battery. Pull them steadily, one by one, with a maximum angle of about 60° and maintain tension until they slips out from under the battery. The strips will lengthen considerably, simply grab them near the battery and continue pulling.

In case they rip or you are unable to get them out completely turn over your phone and use a regular hair dryer to heat the back of the device. This will make it much easier to remove the residual adhesive.

Be very careful not to overheat your battery! Make sure you are just able to touch the back of your phone comfortably so as not to damage the battery!

Use a bit of dental yarn and pull it evenly along the width of the battery in a sawing motion. This should remove all residual adhesive and allow you to easily remove the battery. Be careful not to damage the cables or the wireless charging mechanism directly underneath the battery!

Step 7a: Installation of Battery
