Best screen protectors for 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2018)

By Karen S. Freeman

You've got the biggest, most beautiful screen on a mobile device, and you'd like to keep it pristine. A screen protector might be a good idea. Whether you prefer tempered glass, plastic, or even liquid, we've got you covered. Here are some of the best screen protectors for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro.


Liquid protection

LIQUIPEL Ghostguard Invisible Screen Protection

A few drops of this nano liquid, gently buffed into your iPad's screen (or any screen) can protect from scratches and minor drops. While it seems a bit scary to rely on a liquid to protect your device's screen, it comes with a "You Break It, We Fix It" guarantee. $20 at Amazon

Plastic protection

Liu Nian Film Screen Protector

If you'd like something a bit more solid but still extremely lightweight, this PET material screen protector adds almost no bulk or weight to your iPad. It's not going to be as protective as glass, but will certainly prevent scratches. You get two in this package. Note that the shipping costs are more than double the price of the films, but it's still a bargain. $2 at Amazon

Glass protection

Spigen Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Tempered glass is the way to go if you're looking for drop protection. No screen protector is 100% but glass is the strongest kind. Clarity, fingerprint-resistance, and touch-responsiveness are all maintained. $14 at Amazon

For artists

PaperLike Screen Protector

Get the look and feel of paper on your iPad Pro with a PaperLike Screen Protector. Perfect for art, note-taking, and anyone using an Apple Pencil. Two come in a package. $33 at PaperLike

Two prime protectors

OMOTON Tempered Glass Screen Protector

This two-pack costs slightly more, but with Amazon Prime you know you'll get it quickly. Like most glass screen protectors, you get screen responsiveness, protection from bumps/fingerprints/scratches, easy bubble-free installation, and the full clarity of your device's screen. $17 at Amazon

I'm pretty careful with my iPads, so I'm going to try the LIQUIPEL on my new iPad Pro. If you want protection you can see and feel, I'd recommend a glass one like Spigen's Tempered Glass Screen Protector. - Originally posted on iMore
