In your opinion, or if you’re purchasing one, which screen protector are you getting for the iPhone 11 / Pro / Pro Max? I am looking for a good one, but I’m not sure which one to get. I seen the Belkin glass ones on Apple, wonder if they are any good? What’s your thoughts?

I generally get those $2 ones from case stores at the mall since they will all break eventually. Then you can get a new one and your phone will look as good as new again.

I bought a 3 pack of Maxboost screen protectors from Amazon a year ago for my XS Max, so I'll be using one of those on my 11 Pro Max.

Hard to go wrong with TechMatte’s amFilm. Reputable and stand behind their products.

I go with the Belkin Invisiglass screen protectors (in my opinion, NEVER go with the Belkin Anti-glare protectors as they smudge up horrible) that are sold in the Apple Stores (online as well obviously) and have Apple put it on with the machine they have. That way I do not get bubbles or miss-align it or anything, and it has a one year warranty.

I bought some JETech tempered glass ones on Amazon for £5. Always get that brand, had a front and back screen protector on my iPhone 8 for the last two years and it’s never peeled/broken/scratched. Might see if Apple can install it for me when I pick up my Pro on launch day.

I also went with the Spigen 2-pack from Amazon. Looks like an easy install. If it doesn't work out however I might just pop over to Apple for the Belkin and have them install it with the machine.
did you get the one with the install tray? a tip to install is make sure you put the phone in the tray from bottom in to top. the edge of the bottom should be pretty snug against the bottom part of the tray prior to pushing the rest of the phone into the tray (top).

Yes, that's exactly the one I got. Thank you for the tip. I'll make sure to remember to do bottom to top.

Power Support all the way. Made in Japan. They have glass, clear and matte options. Then even have one glass option made partially of Ceramic and its stronger than Gorilla Glass

I've ordered another Tozo 3 pack. I prefer the glass covering the notch.
I have one left from last year but like to have spares incase I fubar the installation.

My only worry this year is the install tray not giving an accurate fit as the phones are slightly wider and longer this year.
I'm sure the protector will cover the screen but the tray may not fit the phone.

This all the way! I’m assuming machine installed ones will be available on launch day...

I don’t want the self-install kit. I want the machined installed one (only at available at the Apple Store).

I've used Zaggs Glass+ Visionguard on my previous phones.
Anybody else use these or does everybody just get the regular screen protectors?
Not sure how worth it is to get the blue light filter in the protector, or if it even works.

I’ve used icarez for years now and love them. They’re easy to install and it feels like and looks like there’s no screen protector at all. I use the one with black edges and it seemingly blends in. When I first apply, there may be some bubbles here and there but after a few hours, they magically disappear.

Ah, man I missed them somehow for the smaller pro. I managed to get the larger size for the Pro Max for my husband. For myself I'm trying ESR but would have gotten the iCarez had I seen them.

However, I have an iCarez on my daughter's Xr and she complains that it scratched up easily. That could be her fault as she is a teenager and the phone has a rough life in her backpack.

I always try to go full screen protection because I hate the lint accumulation around cutouts.

They still have those machines? I'm hoping the Spigen matches the notch area correctly .
