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.

Thanks!

I dont think you have to worry, the underside of the motherboard on the iPhone 7 has no plates soldered onto it just black stickers to cover the ICs.

if i were you i would look around the internet, or buy another broken phone to get those plates to be safe rather than sorry, but if no one sells them, and you cant find a broken iphone for cheap, just go without them.
