Replacing the rear window of iPhone 8 will cost you $ 349. This is reported by the English resource Ai with reference to the official representatives of Apple. The breakdown falls into the category of "Other damages", not covered by a guarantee and having a fixed value. Similar repairs to the iPhone 8 Plus manufacturer estimates at 399 dollars.
Such a high fee for a seemingly minor repair seems at least illogical, since replacing the front panel containing the display costs "only" 149 and 169 dollars for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, respectively. The absurdity of the situation has reached such proportions that you can purchase a brand new iPhone SE for the money that you are asked to install the rear window.
Although somehow explain the high cost of replacing glass panels can only be a complex composition that provides them with incredible strength. According to the company's own statement, the glass used by Apple in the production of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is made using a special technology and contains metal particles. Whether they work or not, we just have to find out.
