For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with InvisibleShield to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an InvisibleShield Glass+ screen protector for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus.

Most people are likely familiar with InvisibleShield screen protectors, because this is a product that's been around for quite some time. There are several options available for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.


The Glass+ is designed to offer scratch and drop protection for the iPhone's display while continuing to offer the same smooth feel of glass and no loss of touch sensitivity, for protection that's nearly unnoticeable.


It uses Ion Matrix technology to offer impact and shatter resistance, and reinforced edges ensure edge-to-edge protection. According to InvisbleShield, the Glass+ screen protector offers 3x more shatter protection compared to an unprotected iPhone display. It's also designed to have a 100% clarity rating and will not impact the look of the iPhone's Retina display.


A smudge resistant top layer prevents fingerprints from muddying the display, and there's a bubble-free adhesive to make sure the screen protector can be applied cleanly.


The InvisibleShield Glass+ screen protectors normally cost $39.99, but we have 12 of them to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes.

What a ripoff. 39.99! You can get these for $3 per 2 pack on Amazon regularly.
$1.50 each for the knockoffs. Yeah, I use the cheap Daiso ones too. It's up to you whether InvisibleShield is worth it, but it's very trusted, and from what I've seen on older iPhones, it's the best.

That's why, I don't find the common sense with 3D-Touch.
For 3D-Touch, the screen is flexible, therefore, it's sensitive to scratches. So, Apple recommends 'tempered-glass' (Belkin) in their stores, the screen is back to no more flexible. After that, I could see my nails white trying to work the live wallpaper. Where's the 3D-touch?

To the maker
: Bring that to Amazon India for iPhone X. You have a customer.

I like these. I used the Tempered glass one on my iPhone 6 pause for three years. It took some damage from “face drops” and was replaced twice but the iPhone screen is beautiful. These have a similar fingerprint coating to the actual iPhone screen.. they may even be slightly more “slippery”. That’s the difference between cheap one and really good ones.

I have this one on my iPhone 8 Plus and it feels the same or better than the bare screen. I have the iPhone in a Candyshell case too, the only drawback I have is that the very edges of the iPhone are hard to touch. It only causes problems with some swipe actions like moving icons between screen.. but still worth not having a broken iphone.

I used to be a Zagg zealot for years, but their prices kept going higher and higher, and the competition (even the cheap ebay protectors) is getting better and better. Can't see myself throwing away money at Zagg anymore.

Home is everywhere and nowhere.
It uses Ion Matrix technology to offer impact and shatter resistance, and reinforced edges ensure edge-to-edge protection. According to Zagg, its Glass+ screen protector offers 3x more shatter protection compared to an unprotected iPhone display. It's also designed to have a 100% clarity rating and will not impact the look of the iPhone's Retina display.​
Bold 1: WTF is ion Matrix technology, it's probably the same ion glass as the iPhone.

Bold 2: 3X more shatter proof, what exactly does that say?

Bold 3: There's no such thing as 100% clarity rating, light going through a thicker layer of glass (iPhone glass and this protector) will always degrade, it might be 99% but you can't get 100%.

This whole industry of shields is so sadly uninnovative. No big player offer any kind of levels of anti-glare / matteness. Neither they offer shield only for screen part of the iphone, for those who use more protective cases.

[doublepost=1508673560][/doublepost]Think about a universe, where manufacturers, whose products MR is giving away to its US readers, would join the conversation here?
Too far out to even imagine?

Crappy overpriced pieces of obsolete "technology". Quoted 'cause there isn't much in cutting pre-coated flat glass & applying films, glues and whatever.
Stands nowhere near Nillkin 3D CP+ MAX ***FULL COVERAGE 3D CURVED GLASS*** screen protector, but costs thrice as much!
Bought 3 Nillkin's. First is mine, 2nd for my brother & the third for a friend. Real price point $13~$15 on ali. Any other I've been trying since iPhone 6 just sucks vs this one.
As for the subject, personally, I wouldn't disgrace myself by advertizing such an obsolete & [considering its design] crappy "product".

Why they colour the glas the glass is beyond my understanding, there is really no reason to colour the glass outside the display if the colour is the same as the iPhone you apply it to, except when you want a different colour.

Well, my guess is, 1st – this has its roots in combined plastic frame / display window glass cheap full size covers (bought such one, looked better than just glass scraps like zagg & alike, but still uglifying the phone), and 2nd – I can't remember where exactly it was missing from, but the sticky layer doesn't cover the whole inner surface... Perhaps, the very curved edge is missing the sticky layer, so it would have had bubbled border around, should it's been made transparent.
Anyways, this very Nillkin protector is the only indistinguishable full size cover I've ever seen. I've been told many times "why haven't you applyed screen protector? you don't care if you scratch it or crack or something?" when friends seen my iPhone 7 & asked to try it for virtual button click or enhanced display color & etc. It doesnt uglify the iPhone and is barely there when it comes to touching/pressing the "button".
