    I have had about 5-6 Zagg screen protectors that I purchased at Verizon. But within 2-3 weeks it bubbles up in the same spot each time. There is no dust/scratches on that area at all.

    What else could cause that?

    Are you using a case that could be pushing up the edge of the screen protector?

    Or is the phone hot at all? Could be a hot spot (malfunction).

    Or could be a dodgy set of screen protectors if it's happening in the same spot?

    http://www.bestskinsever.com/ are great & have case-friendly sized ones.

    The case isn’t anywhere near the screen protector.
    The only time it gets remotely warm is when I’m syncing for a while.
    I’m gonna have to look into those screen protectors.

    Is it worth getting it looked over at an apple store?

    I'd try a different brand of screen protector than the ones you've tried already. Maybe grab a cheapie you can find nearby, test it out & see if the same thing happens. If it does, then there may be an issue with the phone & you may have a case to bring to Apple.

    I had the same Issue on my 7+. Is Verizon installing the Zagg Shields ? If they are not call Zagg, Complain. They will replace the shields for free no shipping charges.

    Yup thats the reason why. Verizon Wireless Reps, Not all of them, some of them just do not know how to install Screen Protectors with out having bubbles or dust. :( I Have had them install 2 shields for 2 7+ and one 7 last year and one of the 7+s had a small bubble on the top and when I asked they just said its just that way and when I had them reinstall a new shield to replace the one on there due to dropping the phone the new shield had these small bubbles on the sides and when I asked them they said its the best install they have seen.

    I had them install a Zagg glass + on my iPad Pro 12.9 and both times it had a small piece of dust under the shield. Verizon installs the shields as a curtesy. In my honest opinion Zagg makes good shields but due to Improper install by Verizon Wireless Reps bubbles appear due to the fact they do not line up the shield correctly.

    Next Time Do Not Buy From Verizon Buy From Best Buy and pay the 8.00 to install it if you need someone to do it for you and you can't to do it yourself. With Best Buy they give a 7 day grantee on the install and even after a week if issues come up they will help you out. For my iPhone X I am taking it to Best Buy, No More Verizon.

    When I sold my 7+ the Zagg Shield Verizon installed had these 3 small bubbles and they would not go away and it was due to not alining the shield to the home button it was not installed correctly.

    I'm having the same issue with my 8+. Been using the MANTO edge to edge and worked fine on my last 2 iPhones, but this one bubble near the edge of the screen, top and bottom
