    They do exist, but I know what you mean, non glass are going very out of date. However, I can see why. To be honest, I don't know why anybody bothers with non-glass anymore. Especially on expensive phones like this, I wouldn't dare take my phone anywhere without one. How come you still look for the non-glass ones?

    How’s the screen protector? Does it have issues with cases?

    Ordered! Thanks for the person who shared the link. I've been looking for a screen protector and case to show off the new Gold Xs Max. There's so many choices, you've been a great help.

    I think these are PET film: https://smile.amazon.com/iCarez-Protector-6-5-Inch-Friendly-Replacement/dp/B07GQY45WR
    Also, I ordered a Silk case & it came with a free film protector. I was surprised when I found it in the box; I guess I overlooked that info on the product page. Here’s a link to their cases: https://www.amazon.com/stores/Silk/iPhone+X-XS-XS+Max/page/00F3B5E9-1FC0-4177-8329-C3C312B92ED7

    I have had ZAGG Invisible Shield protector since iPhone 4, I NEVER had a problem with these. Very strong protection, very easy to apply

    ”Warning - Reproductive harm”? So I guess Zagg is out for me then

    In the state of California everything causes cancer. The 20-30 mins I spent removing the stickum from a new car window sticker : "This new car may cause cancer and reproductive harm" probably caused more cancer than the car itself.

    Every Starbucks in CA has a "This locality may cause cancer!" warnings.

    Hell, just breathing in Los Angeles may cause cancer. <sigh>. Soon we'll have warnings about how just living in LA may cause cancer every 6 ft in California.

    Yeah I was going to say - it's the required warning in California (Prop 65). Same as the poster above, I see that on everything now, our TVs, lithium batteries, a darn water bottle....anything and everything.

    Its on the ATT site, other mobiles - https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/wireless/KM1085305

    Its even mentioned in Apple Watch documentation, by law they HAVE to slap this Cali. Prop 65 act on almost everything.
    https://www.apple.com/support/assets/docs/products/watch/Restricted_Chemicals_for_Wearables.pdf , Other Apple products. https://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/pdf/Apple-Regulated-Substance-Specification.pdf

    So...yeah the way I see it, (and sorry to be a downer) basically everything causes cancer. I don't need a warning sticker to let me know..

    I picked up the armor edge from Best Buy. I thought it was nice that you can replace them in store for free.

    So if I order it tonight for pickup at a store tomorrow - and want them to install it - do I walk back in with the belkin & my XS Max on Saturday? Or can I just delay pickup of belkin until Sat and walk in with my phone? And do I need to make an appt? So many questions...

    I would delay it until you get your phone. I have never made an appointment for a screen protector install. It just take a few minutes, although you might have to wait a few minutes etc. With it being release day, you can make an appointment but, you would still have to wait. Result the same.

    I just saw it was available for pickup as well. I ordered a pickup the night the phones went on sale. I will be heading to the Apple store Friday night to do the same thing. Hopefully, I can catch my UPS guy at work and have him hand me my phone, instead of waiting for the same guy to deliver to the house a few miles down the road, which will make me have to wait several more hours.

    What I hate about these companies is they do a very poor job of explaining exactly what their product is. I purchased the exact same thing, except iCarez explains it as “3D Full Coverage” instead of just “Full coverage”. So either yours doesn’t have curves edges (not cover 100% of the display) or mine doesn’t, or I got the exact same thing as you, but paid twice as much....

    I got icarez as well. Except I got the edge to edge version, and not the case friendly version that you listed.

    If you got the one I just posted. Then I believe it goes to the edges a tiny bit farther. That's just a guess. Since the cheaper one says case friendly

    I ordered the bodyguardz pure screen protector. Confirmed with a rep that they would ship and be here by the phone release day but now 1 day before the phone gets here it hasn’t shipped.

    Talked to a rep again and they confirmed there was a delay. Asked if they could upgrade shipping to get it here a little quicker and but they wouldn’t so canceled. They pulled this same crap with the X and I gave them another chance.


    May go by apple today and pick up a Belkin version like suggested above.

    Yeah! I can't wait :D i didn't get a gold model until the 8 Plus, as lovely as it is the white bezel annoyed me. The Xs Max is exactly what i've been hoping for!

    When did you order? I ordered on 9/13. Opted for standard shipping since I had ordered some cheap Orzly ones from Amazon to hold me over. Sent an email to find out about when shipping would happen for pre-orders as I was trying to get them for release day and they said they were trying their hardest to get them out in time for release. Mine are out for delivery today.
