    Just got a new iPad Air after trading in our aging iPad 1. :)

    I may get a screen protector for it. Are the screens on all recent (non-Mini) iPads the same size? Or do I need one specifically for the Air?

    Thanks very much in advance,

    You'll need one specifically for the Air, as the bezel is a bit thinner.

    Honestly, you really don't need a screen protector unless you plan on using the iPad in rugged environments. This is the first time I haven't used a screen protector on mine and I'm loving it!

    I always use a good one. I have grandkids and a cat. An iPad is basically a screen. If you don't mind scratches, don't get one. Not saying you will scratch it but if you do will it bother you? If yes, get a good one and rest easy.

    I have gotten Ghost Armor put on my last 3 iPads. They work really well, stand up to little stocky fingers, feel just as good as the glass, and don't have that 'orange peel' effect. I actually get the full body and feel quite comfy laying my iPad on anything.

    Everyone has their needs. Some simply won't use a screen protector, others (like me) won't NOT use one.

    Oh, to answer your question, you'll need one made for the Air. The slimmer bezels require a different size.
