I purchased an iPhone XS Max on release day, have bought 3 tempered glass screen protectors:
Protector 1: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07G21B9BP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Protector 2: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07GZQBVPC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Protector 3: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07H3777ZS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Esentially, I have spent 10+ mins cleaning it, every dust particle but every single one theres a big air bubble ONLY in the top right hand corner and when I put my finger over it, it goes but comes back after 30 seconds, not sure what/why it is happening... screen issue or what?

Please can someone advise me or had any similar issues?

I have had bubbles in the past too, just gotta keep lifting the edge and pushing downwards to move the bubble. I've found sometimes just moving it towards the center of the phone can squeegee it out. I use a credit card.

I think the 3D screen protectors are just more difficult to install due to the curved edges. I've had good success with the Spigen Glas and iCarez protectors.

Whitestone Dome Glass screen protector is the only one I use. You can find them on Amazon for $25. I installed 2 and they come out “flawless” and you can’t tell it’s there. Highly recommend.

Try one with an install tool/bracket. I have an icarez 3D from amazon, 2 pack and put 1 on 2 different phones. Both turned out beautiful.

According to other posters, the bubbles may go away on their own after a day.

Quit buying cheap screen protectors and buy a quality one. I've had no issues with both Spigen or iCarez 3d one.

Spigen tempered glass here. With the new install tray it’s on perfect and I can’t even tell it’s there.

Has anyone seen screen protectors for the back of the iPhone XS? The ones made for the X will not work on the XS.
