This is why I use a screen protector on my iPads. I was using my iPad at a trade show and a heavy metal trail camera display stand with sharp corners fell against my iPad screen. I use matte screen protectors because I like the feel. That’s a hole in the screen protector. The white blob is the scrunched-up material from the hole and there’s a second mark below.

It’s possible that the screen would not have been scratched or broken had the screen been bare but I’m glad I didn’t have to find out. I don’t know how a tempered glass protector would have fared, but I don’t like the feel of glass. It may not have scratched or it may have shattered, but it probably would have protected the screen.

The second one that came in the package is now installed on the iPad.

Hey, is that a PaperLike screen protector? I have used Zagg’s ultra-something-glass things in the past, but writing on a matte is much, much better. I write a lot and I really like it a lot.

Isn’t the screen damaged at all? Or just not visible after the second paper-like?

I agree it’s important to use screen protectors. Imo glass screen protectors provide the most protection. Glad your iPad is ok.

Just now seeing this. No damage to the screen at all. This is an iCarez. I’ve used that brand on all my iPads.
