Use this guide to replace the display assembly on an iPhone 8. This guide does not cover the removal of the small components on the screen, so you may need to transfer things to your new screen.

Make sure to transfer your old home button to your new screen. The original home/Touch ID sensor must be transferred to the new display in order for Touch ID to function.

Opening the iPhone 8 will damage the waterproof seals on the display. If you do not replace the adhesive seals, your phone will function normally, but will no longer be water-resistant.
