Anyone getting a screen protector for use with the Apple Pencil, or is it not necessary?

    I am. Had a tempered glass one from Amazon on my 9.7" IPP and pencil worked flawlessly

    I would like one that is not slippy for the 12.9
    More of a paper like feel ?

    I decided on this one... Lifetime replacement, and company seems reputable. I'll send it back if I don't like it.

    AmFilm makes good protectors. Got that brand for my Nintendo Switch and was very happy with them. For my iPad Pro 10.5 i ordered the same iCarez the Bootsie ordered because it will be delivered before my iPad is delivered on 6/13. The amFilm is back ordered and may not arrive in time. I like to put my screen protectors on right away! (Although I must admit I usually don't put one on my iPads, but got one this time because of the pencil.)

    Have you guys actually tried a Apple Pencil?
    I find it way too slippy. Looking for something that will have a little resistance

    Hi. I have seen this but can't find any reviews €19 for one sheet so don't want to jump straight in

    It doesn't look like it's backordered any more. Short on stock perhaps, but available for 2 day shipping now. I also have the Switch protector for my daughter. Was a good investment - her 3DSXL screen is covered in scratches.

    Nintendo DS has a plastic screen and for some stupid reason the switch screen is plastic too. They should have used gorilla glass. Wish I had waited to get the amFilm since you get two for a lower price, but i was more concerned with having the screen protector when my iPad arrived.

    They're shipping Friday next week, gave my survey yesterday. Will post with my thoughts when I have it in my hands... They will also be offering a 10.5 version, they confirmed this yesterday. I'd contact them through https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paperlike-write-on-ipad-pro-like-on-paper/#/ and ask about the 10.5 version. They said yesterday that people who had ordered the 9.7 version could PM them and change to the 10.5.

    The link you provided doesn't state the Moshi screen protector feels more like writing on paper rather than a smooth screen protector (which is what the Rugbydman asked for). Is your experience that using this screen protector feels more like writing on paper than most other screen protectors you've used in the past?

    Very much so. It's a matte look/feel. I prefer it strongly over the "bare" iPad glass, however it's the only protector I have used.

    I don't think it's necessary but I had one and the pencil worked fine in my usage

    Thanks for confirming. Probably a known fact for months but was I never interested in the pro until buying the 10.5" today.

    It looks like Moshi has some things in the pipeline, including iVisor screen protector. This from an email I just received from their customer support:

    While our product design team has not announced an exact release date for our upcoming iPad 10.5" products, they have hinted that a VersaCover/VersaKeyboard/iVisor will be released in August 2017.

    Was going to order a glass protector but after reading that some 'can' effect the accuracy of the pencil I've decided to get a matte film version. The matte texture could hopefully give a more textured paper effect
