iFixit Analysis: The latest iPhone SE 2020 parts are interchangeable with the 2017 iPhone 8.

The iPhone SE (2020) launched earlier this month. The new iPhone SE is claimed to be similar to iPhone 8 in terms of its design although its under-the-hood specifications mimic those of the iPhone 11 flagship.

Still, does this mean that the parts on the latest iPhone SE are interchangeable with the 2017 iPhone 8? Well, a report from the DIY repair site iFixit looks at the two smartphones closely and illustrates their similarity as well as the distinctions.

iFixit’s teardown analysis, which showed that iPhone SE’s (2020) internal display cable layout is similar to that on iPhone 8. This essentially ensures the cables that link the display panel and the logic boards within the two iPhone models are done in the same way.

iFixit also points out that if the display panels of the 2nd generation iPhone SE and iPhone 8 are interchanged, the former would lose True Tone functionality on the display. The report also notes that the Home buttons are not interchangeable due to the safety specifications of Touch ID. It is important to remember that both versions of the iPhone have a 4.70-inch display.

The report also states that the iPhone SE’s cameras, SIM tray, Taptic Engine and display assembly (including the microphone and proximity sensor) are “all interchangeable with iPhone 8 parts.”

It was mentioned that while the battery appears similar in both the iPhone 8 and iPhone SE, they are sadly not interchangeable owing to separate logic board connector.

The report concluded that the complete teardown of the iPhone SE (2020) is “in process,” and more tests are being done than checking “parts compatibility.” Interestingly, the report states most iPhones come with “zero backward compatibility,” but that is not the case for the new iPhone SE.
