New pentalobe screws in the iPhone XS?

Anyone have any trouble with opening the new phones? I have stripped out 3 separate bits on a brand new XS phone. I will get in…it is just an annoyance right now. I have been doing this for several years now, so this isn’t user error…just checking to see if anyone else has had the same issue as me.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The pentalobe screws have not changed, they still are taken out with a P2 pentalobe screwdriver.

True, i did forget to mention i am using the correct bit. But was wondering if i am the only one who has had an issue with the newest devices. I have never had a problem with any other model. Almost as if they upped the amount of thread-lock on the screws for these models.

I personally haven't has any issues, I can't speak for others though.
