I don't usually use them either. The only time I have used one in the past four years was when I had to use AC+ to fix a cracked iPhone screen. After that I forced myself to put a screen protector on for the rest of my ownership of the device.Screen protectors are unnecessary anyway - I've never used one on any iPhone.
I am never good at installing them myself. I had a two pack of tempered screen protectors for my Max. And with both tries I ended up with dust under the screen. So frustrating. lol!2 different people and 4 protectors later and still there is dust under the screen. I give up. Love the Xs though!
I installed one of those on both mine and my wife’s new XS. Worked like a charm. Perfect alignment.I have a spigen glass set on order. Comes with the alignment tray. Key is, though, spending a LOT of time with a lint free cloth and maybe even compressed air making sure every little spec of dust is cleaned off.
