Belkin today announced that its InvisiGlass Ultra Front and Back Protection for the latest iPhone models is now available for purchase from Apple.

The InvisiGlass Ultra Front and Back Protection, as the name suggests, provides a thin, adhesive skin for both the front and the back of the iPhone. It's designed to protect the iPhone from scratches and bumps without adding bulk or impacting the look and feel of the device.

Ultra-strong glass covers the front and back of your iPhone to protect it from every angle--helping prevent scratches, scuffs, impacts, and other damage. This dual protection not only preserves the smooth exterior and elevated design of your iPhone, but also protects the screen to ensure flawless operation day after day.
Priced at $59.95, the InvisiGlass Ultra is available for the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

Belkin says the InvisiGlass Ultra uses ion-exchange glass, which makes it "extremely strong" while maintaining its thinness. The InvisiGlass is designed not to impact the touch sensitivity, and Belkin says it was made to feel like the iPhone's display.


Customers who purchase the Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra Front and Back Protection at an Apple retail location can get it professionally applied using the Belkin ScreenCare+ Application Service.

Belkin's InvisiGlass Ultra for the new iPhones can be purchased from Apple.

A bit expensive and doesn’t protect against drops on the edges of the device. I’d rather have the front glass protection and a clear soft plastic case.

Notched screen protectors are so dumb. Not only are they ugly, but you'll always feel that sharp edge when pulling down NC. I always get full-screen ones with the black border, they bother infinitely less than these also because they extend past the end of the display on all sides. They should be more popular.

Hate the notch cutout for the same reason as above.

I have the front handles, any suggestions for the back? (Other than Belkin)

These also randomly will break looking at them wrong. Oh and when they break they tell you to email or call Belkin, good luck! They never respond or deliberately make it difficult!

Wouldn't it be better if the front and back glass design were as strong as the protection that these add-ons add to the phone so that they aren't necessary?

They must be delusional to think people will pay $59.99 for a thin piece of glass - there is absolutely nothing technically challenging to produce tempered glass screen protectors. One that costs $59.99 will probably perform as well or as worse as much cheaper alternatives.

Anybody have any idea of the physics behind this? On the surface, it seems absurd to think that a cheaper, thinner glass could possibly protect the tougher, thicker, most highly engineered glass in the world that comes on the new iPhones.

Probably just has to do with impact absorption. The screen protector can take some of the energy from a drop and potentially save the phone itself from shattering since the protector will shatter first. It’s not an ideal solution though, and in this case you’re paying $60 to put worse glass on top of your good glass.

They should choose the brand which got it right and made screen protectors with black borders which covers entire front of the phone.
And guess what? It’s a $2 screen protector from AliExpress.
