    Hi - I got a zagg invisibleshield protector. I was unaware you have to shut the phone for 12 hours. Does everyone do that? (Haven't put it on as yet).

    I have a new iPhone 6 so don't want to take risks but isn't 12 hours a lot?

    I used to install these at Best Buy. I will say the install will turn out cleaner if you install it and let it dry without using it for quite a few hours but I wouldn't say you have to do that. We would simply recommend not to put them in a case or pocket for about 24hrs while it dried. You could install it before bed and let it dry through the night. On my personal devices I would install them and use them right after never resulted in a "bad" install.

    Thanks for your post.

    If I were to use it within the time frame - say an hour or two later, would it harm the device?

    Also I should have done this research before I bought this but I'm assuming I'll lose clarity?

    And will this wet solution harm the screen in anyway?


    Am I correct in thinking that leaving the phone off is more to protect the installation than the phone itself?

    You could probably get away with using it and not harming anything, although the screen may not work right while there is water trapped under the film.

    Thanks - Ive decided to just try to return it tomorrow although the package is open. I don't think Carphone Warehouse will be very pleased though.

    I've installed mine and let it dry. I'm not sure I like it though. Any tips on removing them? Do I need to worry about damaging the screen.

    well I got the Zagg HDX and when best buy installed it they did not use liquid as it has a different type of install and I could use it right away.

    When using the liquid you are supposed to spray it on the shield and not the phone. When removing the water drag it away from any openings. Clarity isnt affected much but the smooth glass feel is replaced by somewhat of a rubbery feel.

    Has any one heard any word about the zagg glass? Loved it on my 5s can't really see going back to the other material... On that note all I see available is the hdx, that isn't a wet install? Does it come in a full body or just the screen?

    What about dry install like the full body Zagg HDX?

    Dry install are ready to use after install. As long as you line it up right and get no dust or lint under it your good to go.

    I don't see full body HDX for the Plus on the site. Just for the screen. Probably too thick to bend.

    Would be great!

    Not that complicated. Install it after dinner and start using it when you wake up.
