Newbie here, obviously. How to install the iphone 8 in the factory remote WITHOUT removing the Otter Defender Case.

That case is too thick to fit inside of the remote controller arms. You'll need to use some kind of mount.

I'm not sure this will work with the Otterbox, but here is a video that might help.

Around a minute in I believe.

I do that with my Otterbox Symmetry case. It looks like this when wedged between the remote controller arms:

The Defender case (on the top in the photo below) is a lot thicker than the Symmetry case (in the middle in the photo below).
