    Here are the issues that many of us are complaining about with the 6S. I have found that others had similar issues with the 6. The pictures below are from Amazon reviews. I had these same issues with the same brands on my 6S.

    Can someone post a picture of a 6S that is not edge to edge that actually adheres on the edges? I don't know if Apple is using multiple screen suppliers or if these companies keep changing the glass size.

    I had the same problems with the Zagg and the Spigen.

    I tried this one from the Apple store, and it seems to be working pretty good. Not sure how this will hold up in the long run, but so far so good. The bubbles on the lower right corner have since disappeared. The only bad thing is that high price tag. I had an Apple agent install it. I can post pics later on.

    YEP! my spigen isn't quite as bad at the pics but still bad!!!! I've already generated a return for both the 6s and 6s+ versions we bought....

    It looks like Spigen have increased the size of the screen protector and the edges are over the part of the iPhone 6s screen where the curve starts, so the screen protector being standard and not an edge to edge version it just sits over the curved screen edges, that's why you see the air bubbles on the side.

    You're better off with a screen protector that is not too large, that should solve you're problem.

    Maybe I have not owned enough iPhones that had screen protection that I dropped to test breaking / cracking etc.

    But eh.. even with that screen protection on, if it falls and those sides get hit (what are the odds it always falling flat straight), surely since it lacks protection there it will still break. It kinda feels to me like tha protection not wrapping around the sides so to speak makes it kind of useless?

    Tech Armor emailed me to say that they fit and have no plans on revising. They even sent me a refund without asking. I don't know if that was good or bad.

    I recently got my iPhone 6 completely replaced for cracked screen. Before I cracked my phone, I've been using tech armour glass with absolutely no issues at all. (I used about 5 of them, mostly because I took advantage of their lifetime warranty. So I just got them replaced every now and then just because I can). So after I got my phone replaced, I got my screen protector replaced twice because of this adhering issue.seeing this post made me realize that it's probably not tech armours screen that's messed up, it's just my new phone screen thays probably the problem..

    got that nomadic lifestyle
    sorry it's not the smaller size, but the tempered glass shield I got from Spartan Shield for dirt-cheap has been just fine. it's small enough that it doesn't reach the phone screen's beveled edges causing the halo effect. it also helps with cases that come in too close to the screen protector. same goes for my other brand phone...


    I also have a backup Spigen one. you definitely wouldn't see a halo effect on the top and bottom with them being whited out.


    I'm not sure if the sale is still going on, but if so, they're cheap enough to have as spares...

    seems their only tempered glass protectors were worth getting over any of their film protectors.

    I'm pretty happy with the Ghost Armor I had put on in the mall, right after I bought the iPhone 6s.

    Is that tempered glass or film?

    It's film, similar to Zagg.

    What's the texture and clarity like? Orange peel effect?

    It looks like glass. No orange peel effect.

    I've recently fitted a Anker glass screen protector on my 6S (it's for the 6 but seems to fit) - the only issue that although it is perfectly placed the edges aren't perfectly stuck down which is obviously down to the curve. Has anybody else experienced this with Anker?

    I picked up a Z-Nitro glass for my 6s plus. The issue is barely noticeable and it has a lifetime guarantee. Just pay $4.99 shipping if it ever breaks etc.... After you register it of course

    the glass in the verizon corporate stores works. it doesnt reach the edge like edge to edge. just make sure a dumb head like one who did mine doesnt do yours. its so horribly alligned and i cant do anything cus i wont take it off ill just try deal with it. only other down side seems lint sticks to the edges sliding in out of your pocket. i guess be expected just ALOT though.

    I got one for my iPhone 6s Plus and had the same issue. Emailed them and they offered me a refund right away. Here's the reply I got from them. I opted to not get a refund and will email them end of this month to have the new version sent to me.

    Clara from Anker: "After checked with our product manager, we admitted that there is indeed edge fitting issue with our iPhone 6s Plus protectors in the first batch. They are working very hard now to develop the new protectors which can fit your phone perfectly soon, it is expected to be available around end of Oct, 2015. We are sorry for the inconvenience has caused."

    I got my iphone 6s last April and got the Zagg glass and it fit great. But just recently my iphone had tech issues and had to be replaced.

    I set up my phone 2 days ago and when I got it up and running I went back to the Verizon store and got another one for my new phone.

    When I take it home there are is literally a line of bubbles all the way around the screen and they are so deep that you can see the distortion if you were to watch a youtube video. I took it back and complained to the store that it was bent or that the guy put it on wrong.

    They agreed to switch it out and have a different guy with more experience do the new one and it looks exactly the same.

    I'll take and post pics when I get off of work but now i'm pissed because I spend $26 on the thing and it looks like trash.

    I had one on my old phone with no issues, my wifes 6s looks fine, I also have them on my ipads and they looks great.

    I don't quite like the design that around the home button, feels very strange. I prefer some from eBay with different patterns.
    Hope you will like it as well.

    Both Anker and Speigen glass screen protectors fail to fit my new iPhone 6s, would
    have thought these issues had been sorted by now.
