Why does iPhone have glass backs?
For high-speed wireless charging
As we know, Wireless charging will become common in the future. While Apple has maintained its metal architecture and design for several years, it becomes a hindrance to wireless charging technology. In addition, the metal back can trigger phone fever that means it gets heats up quickly. The glass back is the most usable for wireless charging due to procedure limitations.
It also enables the Qi standard, a pretty primitive wireless charging standard that they’ve chosen for these phones.
Its Improves the quality of the signal and its processing.
Metal is a good conductor of heat and electricity and easy to generate an electromagnetic signal. Glass is non-conductive and has no use for signals. It is best for aerial loop arrangements. Glass is easy to form as its mold can be quickly melted and softened in the furnace. It saves money and time compared to metal, which takes more time and money to metal and process.

Can you fix the glass on the back of an iPhone? Can the back of the iPhone be replaced?
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus glass backs are more expensive to repair if it breaks compared to the iPhone screen.
The new black plates, which for the first time in four years carry the glass to the back of Apple smartphones, were installed to allow wireless charging, but they also add a new point of failure.
Apple claims that the tempered glass on the iPhone 8’s screen and back is “the most rugged glass ever in a smartphone,” but the firm hasn’t said how it came to that conclusion or how much more durable it is than Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5, which is used on competing smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8.
As people start losing their £700-plus smartphones, the durability of the glass could become evident.
Apple’s attempts to make the glass back panel more durable that is evident in the metal reinforcement. According to iFixit’s teardown of the iPhone, behind the glass is a metal sheet with a small hole in the middle to accommodate the wireless charging coil.
According to iFixit, the metal sheet is adhered to the glass panel with “a tonne” of adhesive. Leading the repairers to infer that “the quality and longevity of the glass back continue to be seen. Repairs are likely to be quite challenging.”
That means a third-party replacement of the glass panel would be extremely difficult or extremely costly, even compared to the screen. AppleCare+ on the iPhone 8, AppleCare+ costs £130, including up to two damages fixes over two years.
An excess of £30 is due for the screen, but repairs to the glass on the back are only covered under the plan’s “other damage” section. According to AppleInsider, this costs £80 every time, making the back panel more than three times as costly as the screen.
Yes, back panels are replaced and changed. We can’t use the same broken back panel.
Even though your handset back glass has just a small crack or scratch, it will easily widen and inflict further damage. Broken backglass not only cuts your palms and fingertips but also makes it very difficult to operate your iPhone mobile.
Unfortunately, several people put off replacing their phone’s back glass because it is costly and uncomfortable.
The most common issue for iPhone smartphone users is the potentially high cost of maintenance. Apple costs between $ 400 -$599 to patch or replace the cracked back glass on iPhone models.

How to operate this automatic laser screen machine?
Removing the back is so complicated and impractical that apples charge $600 to replace it on the Apple iPhone 11. Generally, 3rd party removers remove the glass in a different way where it has to be subjected to extreme temperature.
A laser marking separator is one of the blessings, and there no need to spend dollars, and it takes away the pain of removing the back glass.
This laser machine separates the back glass panel from the frame.
The red Pointer is used to focus on the surface of the broken glass. Once the focus is set, We will shoot the laser marker by clicking the “now mark”.
The laser is strong enough that it will etch the metal. But the focus is done only on the glass surface as the laser starts its operation.
It starts burning underneath the glass and separating the glass from the metal frame, which is precisely what we are after saving ourselves $500 to 600.
As the laser starts polarizing, it generates a fume which the fume extraction unit can suck. All the designs of the smartphone are generally inbuilt in the software for removing the glass back panel.
The whole process takes 8 – 10 minutes. The very first rotation of the laser beam removes the adhesive of the glass. On the other hand, the second pass of the laser beam removes the complete glass from the frame.
The laser passes through the glass and evaporates the paints on the metal surface that is underneath the glass.
Now the glass can be removed easily with some tool, and now we can place a brand new glass panel.
Now we can select a backglass for our phone and stick it with an adhesive that adheres to the glass with the metal frame. You are ready with your repaired phone, which is fixed at a mere price of 20 to 30 dollars.
