    With Apple Pencil is their a need to use a screen protector?

    I haven’t used screen protectors on my iPhone or iPad for a couple generations now. I’ve found the glass to be pretty resilient. What have been your experiences?

    I have owned every iPad from the very 1st one. I have never put a screen protector on any of them, and have never so much as scratched the screen on any of them. And I've dropped a couple too! For me, I just cover the front and back of my iPad. I use to use Smart Cases, now I use either the Apple Smart Keyboard or the Smart Cover to cover the front, and the Apple Silicone Case or a third party Clear Case to cover the back. That has been fine for me. I've only dropped my iPad a couple of times in my lifetime, and it's been fine. Never while moving or outside. I just don't drop my iPads for some reason.

    Now my iPhones? That's a different story. I put a screen protector on those as I use them in more mobile circumstances than my iPad. They're smaller and easier to mishandle or forget they're in your lap. I use them at the Gym, while running, etc. I feel it's more useful on my iPhone. But iPad? Never LOL.

    No Never Ever Never, It makes the screen darker and worse, I've never used any of these craps on my iDevices since 2008 specially on my both first 12.9 and new 12.9. I'm a movie lover. Therefore, I could never use one.
