The iPhone 11 Pro is the powerful new iPhone for anyone who wants a smaller phone. Smaller than the iPhone 11 and the super-sized iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iPhone 11 Pro has a powerful Apple A13 processor, a triple-lens camera, and improved battery life. Every last bit of Apple’s new phone is experienced through a 5.8-inch screen. The Super Retina XDR AMOLED display is a stunning sight to behold, but it won’t remain so if it takes a tumble and shatters or gathers a collection of ugly scratches. Keep it protected with one of the best iPhone 11 Pro screen protectors.

Whitestone Dome Glass
Whitestone should be your first port of call when looking for a screen protector. The Dome Glass protector itself is made from hard tempered glass which provides a solid barrier between your phone and the outside world, protecting it from scratches, bumps, and chips. But it’s not the protector itself that’s special — it’s the way it’s attached. The Whitestone Dome Glass employs a liquid adhesive which is cured with the included UV lamp, ensuring a solid fit and boosting touch sensitivity. It can even be applied on an already scratched screen, as the adhesive will stop it from getting worse. It’s expensive, but it’s very good.
Purity Screen Protector
There’s a reason why the Purity screen protector is highly rated on Amazon — it’s affordable, comes in a triple pack, has an installation frame, and the oleophobic coating replicates the same coating that’s on the actual iPhone 11 Pro’s display. Applying a screen protector can be a daunting task, especially if you have shaky hands. Thankfully, the included frame makes the installation process as easy as setting the screen protector along the edges of the template. The glass is ultra-clear, and the hydrophobic and oleophobic coating protects your screen from being stained by the sweat and oils of your fingers, keeping your phone looking clean and pristine.
Spigen Glas.tR EZ Fit
With great cases come great screen protectors. Spigen has long been a reputable brand in the smartphone industry and its Glas.tR EZ Fit screen protector doesn’t disappoint. As the name suggests, installing the Glas.tR is very easy. The glass will come pre-attached to the installation tray, so all you have to do is place the tray over your iPhone 11 Pro, and let the adhesive do the rest. The finished product is a perfectly set tempered glass screen protector that’s rated at 9H hardness and feels surprisingly smooth to the touch. Packed with two screen protectors, the Glas.tR EZ Fit is a great deal at $12.
ZAGG InvisibleShield Glass+
One of the biggest concerns with screen protectors is lifting when putting on a case. While slimmer than others, the ZAGG InvisibleShield Glass+ is built to be case-friendly while maintaining the scratch and impact-resistant features of a conventional screen protector. The glass is precisely cut for the iPhone 11 Pro and doesn’t hinder the touch responsiveness thanks to its thinness. What makes ZAGG unique to other brands is its partnership with Verizon, so you can pick up a screen protector at your local carrier store if you don’t want to wait on delivery.
Tech21 Impact Shield Self-heal
Tech21 is one of the best names for protection, and its selection of screen protectors for the iPhone 11 Pro lives up to its reputation for solid protection. While it doesn’t have the solid strength of glass, Tech21’s Impact Shield is made from three layers of film, providing strong protection against scratches and bumps. It contains Tech21’s Bulletshield, a high-performance material that Tech21 claims absorbs the energies from drops time-after-time. It has a self-healing finish to close up minor scratches and leave your view unblemished. While we wouldn’t recommend a film protector for heavy-duty protection, Tech21’s Impact Shield is a good middle-ground for everyday protection.
Belkin’s strength is in creating a simple product with extra-high quality, and the InvisiGlass doesn’t disappoint in that respect. This incredibly durable screen protector is designed with an ion-exchange strengthening process to make sure it’s as tough as possible, and won’t suffer the cracks or flaws that some cheaper screens may suffer from. It’s been tested on coins, keys, and drops on the pavement, and the 9H hardness rating keeps any damage from appearing. The protector is also precision-cut to be as thin as possible so that you don’t lose any touch sensitivity when you use your phone. There’s a reason it’s one of the few screen protectors Apple sells directly on its site.
Ferilinso Screen Protector 3-Pack
Many users bought the iPhone 11 Pro with the intention of using its upgraded camera for photography, vlogging, and other hobbies or professions. If you are one of those users, you may want to consider some protection for your camera lenses as well. This option has a pack of great 9H-rated, tempered glass protectors, but backs those up with a pack for your camera lenses as well. They promise a light transmittance rate of 99.99%, but they’ll help protect your camera lenses against dust, accidental scratches in your pocket, and similar hazards.
Bodyguardz SpyGlass Edge
Screen protectors can do a lot more than just protect, and the SpyGlass Edge from Bodyguardz is a great example of a protector with a few tricks up its sleeve. The SpyGlass Edge has a special coating applied which means it fades to black when viewed from an angle while keeping it crystal clear when viewed from the front. It may seem odd, but it’s intended to keep away prying eyes — and it’s perfect for anyone who uses mobile banking, handles confidential data, or just likes their privacy. The glass is strong and durable too, so don’t expect it to be weaker. A great option if you hate people reading over your shoulder, but keep in mind it’ll make it harder to share amusing videos or images with nearby friends.
RhinoShield Impact Protection
Another film protector, but one that RhinoShield claims has been tested to the highest possible standards against impact energies. That is to say, it was hit with a hammer. We never recommend hitting your phone with a hammer regardless of protection, but if its even half as protective as RhinoShield claims — and it also claims the Impact Protection can absorb five-times the impact energy of Gorilla Glass 3 — then your display should be very well protected. It’s as thin as a single sheet of printer paper, and though $25 is a fair amount of cash, this slim protection could be worth it.
