Title:

iPhone 8 screen missing top clips that are on iPhone 7 screens?

Text:

I just fixed an 8 plus screen, and then it literally fell off of the phone, ripped the cables clean off. I noticed that the top clips that used to slide the iphone 7  screens into the body are missing, and have been replaced with little metal brackets that don’t clip into anything… Is it just the waterproofing adhesive strip that holds this screen in? Also, on the 8, they switched the bottom screw clips from metal to plastic, so it’s no wonder this screen just fell off after a day. I guess I have to put the waterproofing adhesive on, but is there anything else that’s holding these screens together? https://blog.rewatechnology.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/4-4.jpg
