Folks, it looks like the iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max will need different screen protectors which may be complicated by the slight curve at the edge, albeit it's not as pronounced as some of the leaks made it sound. So, as you're purchasing your new screen protectors post them here so we can compare notes and find the top performers.

So far, none of the top picks from last year (Torras, Tozo, Spigen) have posted products for the new Pro iPhones.

Wait so the 14 pro max screen shields won’t fit ? I did not even notice a screen size difference

I usually go for the Spigen Alignmaster with the black border but even with the frame it is almost impossible to get it 100% perfect. If not just right you lose a few pixels on one side and can take me a fair few attempts lifting and refitting until right. Each time you can guarantee a speck of dust/lint finds it's way underneath resulting in lifting again to slide a piece of tape to clean off.

So gone for EZFit this year and giving it's application method a try.

It’ll be easier to spot when the first reviews get posted but judging by some of these hands-on videos there is a slight curve at the edges which will make this year’s screen protectors almost impossible to be edge-to-edge. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the early screen protectors have major fit issues.

The bezels on the new phones are thinner and the screen edges are slightly curved I believe so, no
Thank you, I’ll just order the one from Apple

Is this the Natural Titan finish or the black one?

Hm… good that you bring it up…
I might actually splurge and go for the Belkin one and let it be applied at an Apple Store…
I think they redo it if it doesn’t fit…

I hope they do it on launch day to…(if I end up with the Belkin)

Are the Apple Stores still installing the Belkin screen protectors? I remember the device they used to install them. It was a perfect install.

I grabbed a 4-pack of these on Amazon for $10. Even if they aren't great, they'll hold me over until I find something better.

I think they probably are. Looking at the Belkin Ultraglass (for 15 Pro) on the Apple website today, I noticed it states:

‘Includes Easy Align tray for precise application at home
If you would prefer having a protector professionally applied, please visit an Apple Store and purchase a Belkin UltraGlass 2 Screen Protector compatible with Screen Protection Applicator, sold only in Apple Store locations.*’

I was tempted to order & install myself, but have decided to try visiting an Apple Store on the weekend of the launch, to see if the store has stock and can install for me. The store fitted a protector to my iPhone X back in 2017 & the install was perfect.

When I took delivery my current phone (12 Mini), the stores were closed in the UK as I seem to recall (winter lockdown for Covid?), so I ended up fitting the Belkin protector at home using the supplied ‘Easy Align Tray’ & was pleasantly surprised/impressed with the result (install was perfect), but I don’t know if I was just lucky. Think I would feel more comfortable getting the store to fit the protector to my 15 Pro once I have it.

Ah, yeah, I just noticed that statement. I think you are right! The “*” at the end adds more color:

“Manufacturer Note
* This application-included screen protector is not available online”

I have been lucky with the self install kits as well. I would definitely feel more comfortable having it installed at the Apple Store though. I’ll be going to the Apple Store the weekend of the launch assuming I receive my preorder on Fri 9/22 😀

A lot of these are “case-friendly” designs which means even for the 14 Series they never went completely edge to edge. So I think the new screen protectors will continue that practice and stop just short of where the glass curves a bit.

Anyone received their Spigen EZ fits?

Mine seemingly have no cut out for the top speaker?
