The iPhone 8 iPhone SE earns a 6 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

The two most commonly replaced components, display and battery, remain straightforward to access with the proper knowledge and tools.

Most components are modular and independently replaceable, including many that are cross-compatible with iPhone 8.

IP67 seals complicate repair, but make the need for difficult liquid damage repairs less likely.

While the overall construction is pretty repair-friendly, you’ll still need up to four different driver types for many repairs.

The fragile glass back is impractical to replace.

The hardest part of any repair is knowing what to do. Thanks to its similarities to the 8, repairs on this SE are already excellently documented—check it out.
