Officially announced by Apple on September 12, 2017 the iPhone 8 Plus sports a very similar external design to the last four years of iPhone releases, making the phone seem almost stagnant in a market where the push for constant improvement is unrelenting. However internally, the iPhone 8 Plus boasts a six core A11 bionic processor which is the same as its smaller siblings, but impressive nonetheless. The main performance boost with this generation of iPhone is the battery life and RAM storage. The RAM has been upgraded by a whole gigabyte of memory to help with multitasking, and the battery life can last a solid 32 hours between charges on average. With this level of stamina, the iPhone 8 Plus has few rivals. The cameras on the back are improved 12 megapixel camera, which both have physically larger sensors than last year’s iPhone 7 Plus on which the dual-camera system was introduced. The two cameras work together one has a standard wide-angle f/1.8 lens and the other has a slower f/2.8 lens with an effective two times magnification compared to the standard lens.
All iPhone 8 Plus repairs will require a Pentalobe P2 screwdriver in addition to standard precision electronics tools. Any repair that removes the battery from the chassis will require replacement adhesive strips. All iFixit Fix Kits come with all tools and replacement adhesive needed to complete the repair.
