    what’s the best way to clean the iPad 12.9 screen with zero risk of scratching it? Screen protector is not an option

    With this product: (pics I took from it)

    Bought twice and this is the only microfiber cloth I've been using ever since I got my IPP 10.5 in 2017. The screen is in perfect condition to this date.

    I don't use/recommend screen protectors, too. I think they will detract from the original. Remember these newer devices are so good precisely due to this factor:

    "Record Low Screen Reflectance and Performance in Ambient Lighting"

    Which I don't see how it can be the same with a screen protector.

    Note: sometimes the iPAD screen gets dirty and using this cloth in dry condition will not remove the smudge. This doesn't happen often, but when it does I advise to use pure/clean water from your sink - just dip the tip of the microfiber cloth and carefully apply in the screen (never rub hard and only apply into the area affected).

    Never use anything besides water when this sort of thing happens.

    Baby wipes and kitchen towel to dry. I never get any scratches from this method.

    I like this idea because those are often sold in portable packs. My new IPP picks up way more dust and fingerprint goo than my Air 2, and while a breath and a quick swipe with a microfiber would clean my Air 2, it takes a lot more than that to clean the IPP.

    While not owning the newest iPad, so far microfibre cloths have always worked well for me.

    Be sure to get any grainy stuff off (like sand) before wiping it down. You won’t want to grind the grains into the screen after all. Blow them off or be gentle with them

    A very fluffy microfibre towel is the only thing to use.

    Any other wipe or cloth will risk having a grain of dust or sand that can scratch your screen.

    I use chemical guys happy ending towels for all my devices.
