Did I just wreck my broken iPhone 8 Plus?
While attempting to remove my battery, I scraped the black back part of the interior. Is my phone now a lost cause?
Your phone should be fine….. But i think when you say “the back black part” you mean the wireless charging coil back. you might not be able to use wireless charging anymore. that also depends on how deep the scratch was and if it affected any other components.
Hello Paul Georges! I do not think it would have done anything to damage the operation of your device. You may want to clean the effected areas and leftover glue off by applying a small amount of some isopropyl alcohol and scraping off the residue with a microfiber cloth or spudger.
