I’m looking for a screen protector for my 12 Pro. For my 11 I had the Apple store installed glass protector, but as far as I know they aren’t doing that this year. Are all glass protectors created equal? What are your favorites? I received free ones from the TMobile store but I have my doubts...

Apple is still doing in store glass screen protectors.

There are far better and cheaper screen protectors then the Belkin ones. The following two are examples.

In the middle of several books.
Also, it has been reported that the machine Apple uses to install the screen protector scratches the metal band surrounding the phone. There are posts about this.

In that thread, I believe that particular Apple store either had the wrong size machine, or it was not set up properly. Other stores don’t seem to have a problem from what other members have reported at various locations.

I had one installed today without any damage to my phone.

This one isn't full screen, but it it covers the actual screen perfectly. We'll see how it holds up but I like what I see so far.

Get these every year and installed by Apple, my whole family does and never have been a scratch. I don’t know how anyone installs any other screen protect without the machine. Too hard and would rather just go with no screen protector.
