So from the start I was under the impression that my iPad's screen was pretty much scratch proof. Despite that I've been extremely careful with it, the back is protected by a hard case and if I take it anywhere I put it in its sleeve. I've never once dropped it or dropped anything on it, but today I noticed 3 or 4 scratches on the screen, one of them being pretty noticeable Needless to say I'll be buying a screen protector shortly. I know there have been a few other threads about similar stories but this is just a reminder, YOUR IPAD IS NOT SCRATCH PROOF! On a related note, will a screen protector help cover up already existing scratches or make them more obvious?
