Does anyone know if screen protectors will be okay to use with the Touch ID?
I've never had a screen protector that covered the home button. Most, if not all, screen protectors always have cut-outs for the earpiece, front camera (sometimes the sensor as well) and the home button.
You don't need a screen protector with touch ID. The home button is sapphire crystal, which required 300 times more force to cause the same damage as the quartz glass of the screen. You are not going to scratch your home button unless you involve some crazy circumstances.
Sapphire crystal is amazing stuff, I wish the whole phone was made of it.
this. no screen protector covers the home button.
I was referring to if the screen protector is not perfectly aligned. So, maybe the hole cut out for the home button cannot be 100% perfectly lined up with the home button. I am wondering if it would then have an affect.
Have never had a screen protector cutout not align properly with the home button. If you get one that partially covers the home button, send it back as defective and get a better one.
Don't see why not. Current screen protectors will probably cover that ring around the button but I'm sure future revisions will fix that.
It will work, most of the companies are making the screen protectors home button cut wider
Did anyone get an answer for this? I am wondering this as well. I had a screen protector that came with a home button protector separate for my iP4.
Or let's say that I want the Otterbox case with the screen protector built in or one of those waterproof cases. Like these:
Unless u buy a cheapy one that says 5/5s compatible (they are selling you old stock 5).
I'm sure the screen protector makers will adapt them to work with the new iPhone, or else they would be out of business.
Surely its common sense? Old screen protectors will most likely cover the capacitive ring around the new home button so the Touch ID sensor wont work.
Same if you use a case that is going to cover the button plus old cases will most likely not cater for the new camera and dual LED flash.
And this is why I'll wait until some poor customer with one tries it out first, than I may buy
Wouldn't common sense dictate that a screen protector that covers a capacitive screen work that's covering a capacitive ring?
I've never used a screen protector that was capacitive touch proof anyway.
I agree though if the screen protector or case entirely covers the button then there will be functionality issues. I'm thinking lifeproof, otterbox, etc...
I think the home button is the same dimension as the iPhone 5, even with the touch id. Screen protectors should work. I ordered an otterbox commuter case too. The camera opening looks large enough to fit the dual led.
I bought some Tech Defense HD Clear 5/5s/5c screen protectors. Either they will work with it, or I'll tell them they need to send me some that do, so I'm covered. I'm hoping they'll work, but I would be surprised if they do. Figured for 5 bucks I may as well find out though.
I have a good feeling it will. The home button itself looks like it was cut smaller to supplement the ring that goes around it. Of course I have no way of confirming until tomorrow.
That'd be cool. Does the ring around the button depress with the button do we know?
...but the screen is not. As stated above, most screen protectors don't cover the home button anyway. The choice to use a screen protector is as subjective as it ever was.
