Title:

Will iPhone 8 screen be replaceable?

Text:

It is rumored that the next iPhone could eventually put thousands of 3rd party repair shops out of business by requiring software to complete a screen repair. While Apple is providing a few authorized retailers their calibration machine and required software, most repair shops will not have access to this. I guess we will know for sure in a few weeks but does anybody have any info on this?
