Hello everyone,

I'm curious about what would happen if I buy the Belkin screen protector from the Apple Store and have it delivered home, followed by going to the Apple Store and ask them if they can install it for me. Is that possible or can they only install it if I buy/pick it up from the store?

Also, does Apple's 14 day return policy also apply to the screen protector even after it's installed?

Thank you all and looking forward to the new iPhone as I'm sure most people!

I don’t see why they wouldn’t install it for you or at least give you some guidance. Check out my post here:

There are two separate kits for this product, self-install (order online or purchase in store) and machine-installed (purchase in store only). You’ll want the later one because there will be no bubbles and the alignment will be perfect.

Because there’s different packaging for the Apple installed one, you have to buy that one from them at the store. I tried doing an online with in store pickup and they returned them for the other, so it takes more time. But last year they had plenty on launch day and since I think these phones are the same size, that should still be true.

Yep, spot on!

I wish we could reserve the Apple installed one online though. Hopefully they have plenty. I plan on going to the Apple Store on Sunday the 22nd.

Awesome, thank you!

These are two different products. The kind they sell in store for use in the Belkin machine isn't available online.
