The screen is of the utmost importance on your iPhone. Because it’s a touchscreen, it’s the primary way you use the phone—dialing numbers, navigating menus, texting, and using apps. Apple has made the iPhone screen as durable as it can be, but even so, it will inevitably pick up scratches and dings with long-term use. Every time you set down the phone on a surface or put it in your pocket with keys or other items, you risk damaging the screen. And accidental drops are even worse—you can crack or shatter an iPhone screen if you drop the phone just right.
Some cases, like the Otterbox Universal Defender Case and the Case-Mate Tank Rugged Case, have built-in screen protectors to shield the screen from damage. Other cases have a slight overlap or lip on the front that raises the screen a few millimeters when you set the phone down.
If your case covers the back and sides of the iPhone but doesn’t protect the screen, then you should consider purchasing a separate shield. Invisible Shield, for instance, is a popular brand that protects all Apple products and other phones, tablets, and e-readers. Consider the benefits:
• When applied properly, the shield doesn’t bubble and it protects the phone from scratches, wear, and dirt.
• It’s based on technology used to protect military equipment from dust and debris.
• You have the option of applying the shield over all the surfaces of the phone.
• If you choose to remove the shield, it comes off easily with no residue.
• It’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
