What is the size of every screw in the iPhone 8?

Doing a housing swap and stripped 2 screws (managed to get them) that i need to replace. I have a spare set of iphone 8 plus screws, i just need to figure out what size they are.

i do not have calipers or anything to figure out size with, just my eyes.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It’s hard to know exactly how long the screws are without anything to measure them with.

What I would do is to take the stripped screw and compare it to the other screws, start by removing the ones that are obvious, then removing by length etc. and then you should end up with a screw of the right size.

Hope this helped and good luck! :D

Yeah had an old iCloud locked + water damaged SE, just eyeballed various screws on that until I found some that worked. Funnily enough, one of the original iPhone 8 screws would not go back in, as if it was too short! But I found some from the SE that fitted really well.
