Is it safe to use an iPhone 7 without the logic board plates?
I have had my iPhone 7 for just under a year now. I have taken it apart to do a housing swap just to find out that the underside of the logic board has no plates on it and all the chips are exposed. It was purchased second-hand by myself around this time last year but it did not turn on but after a battery replacement it has been perfect, so as far as I’m concerned it’s all good, but I was just wondering if my logic board will be damaged if I re-assemble the phone with a new housing using this same logic board without the plates.
Is this a good question?
