Glass breaks. Apple has once again made the back glass on their new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro permanent. Apple charges 300 to 600 dollars to replace the glass back on their new iPhones. Lucky for us, there is now an easier way to replace the back glass on your iPhone 8, iPhone X, or even iPhone 11. And that is with the new Laser Separator machine.
Zach from JerryRigEverything Youtube Channel has come up with a great way to remove this adhesive and also the broken glass using lasers, once done the glass can be replaced for a lot less than Apple charges for it, have a look at the video below.
For every step a company might take to make their product repairable, there are thousands of awesome people coming up with solutions, and ways to repair ‘repairable’ devices. This iPhone laser glass separator machine is one of the coolest solutions I have ever seen.
There are several such machines on the market, but they all work essentially the same way: a high-powered beam is able to literally burn off the adhesive under the back panel, while being precise enough to not damage other components.
