Here’s how to see if your iPhone 8 has a faulty logic board and, as a result, is eligible for a repair:

Open the Settings app on your iPhone and select General from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to Serial Number from the About menu at the top of the screen. Copy the serial number by pressing the Copy button.
To use the iPhone 8 checker, go to Apple’s website. Copy the serial number and paste it into the box provided, then click Submit.
If the tool indicates that your iPhone is part of the recall, you have a few options for getting it fixed. You could start by visiting an Apple Authorized Service Provider, which you can locate here. Second, you could visit an Apple Store right away. Last but not least, you can contact Apple Support and have a prepaid shipping box sent to you so you can send your iPhone in for repair.

If your iPhone has been freezing or restarting on its own, it should no longer be doing so when you get it back — and it shouldn’t start if it hasn’t done so before. Apart from that, don’t expect any significant performance improvements. Your warranty will continue to run out when it is supposed to.
