Best iPad Mini screen protectors

The iPad Mini is a gorgeous little device. A sleek, comfortable design, great display, and a bountiful app marketplace make the tablet one of the best on the market. However, Apple products are not known for their rugged or impact-resistant build  nor do they hold up to scratches well. If you plan on taking your Mini on-the-go, why not take the time to purchase a little protection. Below are some of the best screen protectors available to ease that worried mind of yours. Be forewarned though, it’s not our fault if you can’t apply them properly.

Check out our picks for the best iPad Mini cases while you’re at it.

The screen protectors feature 0.2-mm thick strips that cover your iPad Mini’s screen and frame, offering a bit more coverage and protection from the elements. Zagg’s Nano-Memory technology adds durability, maintains clarity, and reduces glare. The screen protectors vary in price by whichever model you choose, whether it is the smudge-proof option or the high-definition version, but the style and fit remains the same. And who can complain about a lifetime guarantee?

The first layer of film is scratch resistant and protects your iPad from harmful UV rays that can lead to yellowing. The second layer gives you a bit more puncture protection. It may be listed at $20, but you can usually score the screen protector at various online retailers for around $5.

The Ultra Clear Crystal’s hard-coated film strip does a nice job of protecting your mini’s LCD screen, preventing glare and retaining clarity (should you install it properly). We are hoping the company adds a tempered glass screen protector in the near future, but we will have to wait and see come springtime. 

  Wrapsol Ultra Screen Protector ($25)
