The best iPad screen protectors:

Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to add to this list of iPad screen protectors as new options launch.

AmFilm tempered glass iPad screen protector

AmFilm makes some of the best screen protectors around, regardless of your device. We recommend its tempered glass options across the board for their 9H hardness rating and oleophobic finish. You’ll usually get your screen protectors in a two-pack, which is great when accidents happen. AmFilm’s tempered glass protection measures in at just 0.33mm thick, so you’ll barely notice any difference on your iPad.

JETech tempered glass

Tempered glass is our material of choice when it comes to iPad screen protectors, and this JETech is another great pick. It matches the AmFilm with a 9H hardness rating and it even comes in a two-pack. The JETech screen protector is also just 0.33mm thick, and it packs rounded edges so you shouldn’t notice any chipping as you go about your day.

Supershieldz tempered glass

You can almost guarantee a 9H hardness rating when you pick up an iPad screen protector, and this is another solid choice from Supershieldz. It comes with 2.5D edges, which are rounded to guard against chipping. Supershieldz added an oleophobic coating to its screen protectors as well so they shouldn’t pick up too many fingerprints. You should barely notice a difference in clarity or touch sensitivity.

Omoton tempered glass iPad screen protector

This two-pack of Omoton tempered glass screen protectors includes everything you’ve come to expect. You’ll get a 9H hardness rating and an oleophobic finish, but the Omoton is slightly thinner than many others at 0.26mm. Further, it comes with a handy frame to align your screen protector just right before you apply it. The 2.5D rounded edges should help to keep your iPad safe from chipping as well.

Sparin tempered glass

If you’re worried that you’ll go through screen protectors faster than most people, Sparin is the brand for you. Most of its tempered glass options come in three-packs so you can replace them as needed. Aside from that, you’re looking at most of the same premium specs — a 9H rating, ultra-clear finish, oleophobic and hydrophobic coatings, and no loss of touch sensitivity.

Mobdik Paperfeel

And now for something completely different — the Mobdik Paperfeel iPad screen protector. It’s made of a durable film material unlike the others, and it’s designed to cut down on the shine of your iPad’s display. The Paperfeel is meant to make your iPad feel like you’re writing and drawing on a piece of paper, complete with a matte finish. Mobdik’s screen protector supports Face ID, measures just 0.17mm thick, and you can’t crack film.
