I'm searching for an ipad pro screen protector that has really good fingerprint resistance... I mostly use my ipad for Square in my shop, and want to keep it clean from people signing on it, etc. I have it down to three different protectors on amazon... Has anyone had any experience with any of these three?

amFilm seems to be the most popular amoungst the crowd-- I just placed my order for it. If anyone else has any contributions with any other protectors, please feel free to comment on this post!! :)

I just installed the amFilm hd clear screen protector I had bought for my iPad air1. It fits perfectly....only now I'm wondering if I should just take it off. It seems to make the screen much more reflective....negating the anti-reflective coating the iPad pro has. But I'm also wondering if the anti-reflective coating will wear off after time.

I was under the impression it wasn't a coating but the actual technology of the screen. For example the reason the ipad air 2 was better then the ipad air was because they were physcially able to put the lcd closer to the glass or something like that.

That is true about the reduced space between the glass and lcd ...but it also has an anti-reflective coating, as stated on apples website.

I have one of those tempered glass protectors on my iPhone and iPad; they're a bit easier to apply and offer really good protection, especially if you're dealing with the public.

I have a good one. I found some old screen protectors fo my iPad Air and I installed one on the new 9.7. Later in the day after using the Pencil for like 15 minutes, it was all scratched up. I was all annoyed and then went online shopping for a glass protector. Later on I went to pull it off and surprise - the scratched up protector wasn't the protector at all but the plastic protector that protects the protector.

I'm getting the OMOTON screen protector tomorrow and will let you know what I think and how well it works with the pencil.

The OMOTON screen protector is quality. The screen actually feels more premium to me now..very smooth.. and the pencil works with no issues.

I noticed there are two OMOTON glass protectors for the iPad Pro. One just lists the pro 9.7 for compatibility, and the other lists iPad Pro 12.9, air, air2. Which did you order? They seem to have different ASIN numbers....wonder if they are the same products.

Here's the link to the one I purchased ASIN: B0187AEJTM

I should reiterate, the glass is very smooth and slick. Some may not like it so slick. I'm happy with it.

Thank you..that's the iPad Pro/air/air2 one. This is the other one I was talking about with a different ASIN number. Wonder if they are the same products...just boxed differently?

I'll follow up on my post about the tempered glass protector with the Pencil:

For pure protection, the glass protectors are the way to go because they offer the best guard against impact damage. however, and I was stupid when I bought it, they elevate the tip of the Pencil just enough to give you a

One note about the glass - which I have as well and love - is that if you're using the Pencil with it it will add a bit of a gap between the tip and the spot on the display where the tracking starts. It's not the tip-to-display that you saw in the Apple Pencil video. It works great with the Pencil, and once you get used to that little 0.5mm gap it's all good.

I just received the amFilm, and it drastically increases the reflection on the screen, which makes Apple's success in reducing glare or reflection more.. Also, it came broken, which is shotty.

Does the omotion increase reflectivity?

I have an anker tempered glass. It feels beautiful, very clear, good price but it's increased the reflectivity a lot.

Reflexivity vs safety !
