Other Picking up new iPhone at Apple Store tomorrow. What are the chances that I can pay them to put on screen protector and add AppleCare+ on new iPhone?

Will the Apple Store employees be willing to help me set up the new iPhone 12 Pro tomorrow, launch day?

I've never picked up anything on their launch days, so I just figured that they hand you your order and send you on your way ASAP....

Can I pay them to put on a screen protector and add AppleCare+ all during the scheduled 15-minute pick-up time?

(plus, if there's any time left, discuss the future of Apple, Inc and the hobbies of Mr. Tim Cook? Just kidding) :)

If you buy their screen protector in stores they will install it for free.

But due to the zombie virus this year, they might not be able to help you, especially if you’re at the express line

Oh, did Apple come out with a screen protectors for 12 Pros? Or you guys are talking about 3rd party ones they sell?

Also, any recommednations on a good screen protector for the 12 Pro? I always go for Zagg Invisible Shiled Glass ones.

The third party ones they sell

I just got a $7 3-pack from Amazon. Though it seems they’re kinda shady.

Every year I get them to install the Belkin screen protector (the ones they sell in store) using that nifty machine. Makes it so easy. Never experienced any issues after the fact either. No bubbling or corners lifting up.

How thin are they? And is it just one screen protector in the pack?

According to the description on Apple's site (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/HPBU2ZM/A/belkin-ultraglass-screen-protector-for-iphone-12-12-pro) they are 0.29mm thin. It's just a single screen protector, but Belkin has a lifetime warranty on them covering 'normal wear and tear' (https://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?articleNum=316558). If anything happens Belkin can send either a self applicator retail package or sealed ScreenCare+ protector to be installed at an Apple Store.

That’s $50 bucks here :/

hopefully the $7 3-pack I got from Amazon is decent, it’s thinner than belkin’s. But I’m starting to doubt this brand that I bought from cuz they obviously posted fake reviews two days ago for an iPhone that hasn’t been publicly released yet 🤷🏻
