Install a Screen Protector on Your iPhone (Without It Looking Messy)

Some people spend their day using their


without case or screen protector. Others keep it in a case. And there are others who feel they have nothing to lose by going all out and kitting it out with a case and screen protector.

I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with screen protectors. Many are poorly made and a complete pain to fit properly without dust getting trapped in the diaper, not to mention creases and bubbles.

But the screen is the main part of your iPhone, and it takes up about half of the iPhone’s surface. And scratches and chips are unsightly, and cracks eventually mean expensive screen replacement.

I prefer prevention to cure, so I equipped my

iPhone 13 Pro Max

as soon as the screen protector I wanted became available.

The screen protector I used was the

Set of 2 Spigen EZ Fit Tempered Glasses

. After extensive testing, this kit was the easiest to install and had the best screen protectors I could find.


  • Easy to apply
  • Detailed instructions
  • You get two protectors in one pack
  • Robust and scratch resistant

Do not like

  • The plastic frame that holds and aligns the screen protector feels useless

And I installed one for about six months on my iPhone. Until the other day, I dropped my iPhone on some rocks while exploring a disused copper mine, and the screen protector cracked.

Now the first question is, would the screen have been damaged, or am I just putting on a screen protector?

I am not sure. iPhone screens are tough, but they’re not indestructible, and despite AppleCare coverage, screen replacement is difficult.

I prefer to have a little more peace of mind.

I won’t bore you with the editing except to offer you some suggestions:

  • Read the instructions and know what you are doing
  • Mount in a dust-free environment
  • Read the instructions again
  • The more time you spend cleaning the screen and avoiding dust, the better the end result will be.
  • Take your time
