Hi, I already bought a tempered glass screen protector for my iphone 6 but does anyone know where I can buy a skin for just the back screen? thanks.

Back screen?

Since the new iPhones are curved, wet install would be ideal for the back. There are plenty: Skinomi, Best Skins Ever, Phantom Skinz, Xtremeguard, Zagg, etc etc.

I just ordered a skin from Best Skins Ever since they're only $5.84 for pre-order. Haven't tried any of the other skins.

How do some of these products compare to ZAGG and clear-coat? I've used those in the past and have been very happy with them. Is it going to be tough to install back protection on the curved edges of the new iPhones?

That's what I am finding as well. I don't want a back protector that wraps around the curved edges, just something for the very back. Is that possible with the new design of the iPhone with the curved edges?

Ditto but I can only find ugly full body sets and not just singular back protection

I ordered the xtremeguard back protector. It might be worth a look especially with the 85% off coupon.

I haven't had much luck either finding a protector for the back of the iPhone 6. Its probably because the manufacturers are guessing in many cases as the phone isn't available yet.

I bought a Spigen Neo Hybrid EX bumper and need a protector for the front and back. So far no luck. :(

I purchased a Spigen Neo Hybrid EX bumper as well. I am hoping that any of these back protectors will work with the bumper. I don't use a screen protector.

I've ordered this one myself. I'm only interested in the back protector as I already have a screen protector.

I'm also thinking of ordering this one as I think it may be better, although I'm a bit weary of the wet application.

I might consider the second link, thanks very much for sharing :)

I have had a Spigen Bumper on my current iPhone 5 for nearly two years now and had a protector front and back. The phone is in mint condition so I dare not risk it by not using them on the 6 with another bumper.

Your welcome.

I think I will also order the second one as well. The main reason I went for the first is that it's dispatched from the UK whereas I'm sure the second one will be coming from the US, so just wanted to have something for Friday.

The only protection I will be using will be a front screen protector and hopefully one on the back to protect from scratches. I think I will bite the bullet and get AppleCare+ when the phone arrives though.

Edit - Does anyone have any experience of these wet apply skins/protectors? Are they easy to apply and remove without any problems?

Thanks.

I've actually decided on this one from bestskinsever if you are still interested.

http://www.bestskinsever.com/iphone-6-skins

They are currently offering 35% off if you preorder. They will be manufacturing the skins and protectors once they get hold of the phones, so hopefully this will mean a perfect fit.

Thanks, I'll probably get the Skinomi one as a stop gap until I find something better since it's cheap

Please post here if anyone finds a decent matte type back skin. I'm looking for a little more grip. Something clear and glossy like the zagg would work but not a fan of how they look or feel (tacky)

The bestskinsever one is available in matte.

They have a lot of positive reviews as far as I can see.

Zagg HDX full body is the way to go. AT&T store has them in stock. Bought mine a couple of days ago.

Same here, got 50% accessories with my FAN discount :) Didn't get a chance to open the package yet. How is the back protector? Will it wrap around the curved edges of the new design? It's a dry install, wonder how easy or tough it will be install? I usually go to ZAGG kiosk at the mall and have them install, but won't have a chance to get there for a while so decided to pull trigger on the ZAGG hdx full body.
