The iPhone 11 is sleek and stunning and comes in a gorgeous array of colors. And that’s why many people are loathe to hide all that natural beauty inside a protective case, despite the myriad stylish ones available. No matter how great a case looks, it almost never looks as good or handles as well as the real thing. Screen protectors are another story. With a screen protector, you get the best of both worlds: You can use your device comfortably and still protect that big glass slab on the front. Some screens serve a dual purpose of not only protecting the glass but also your privacy and security with various coatings that repel prying eyes.
Screen protectors are a great first line of defense even if you intend to buy a case eventually. Many are designed to work perfectly with various case brands. If your new iPhone is already in use when you decide to buy a screen protector, no worries. Just be sure to clean your screen to a high dustless gloss before applying the cover. Both the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11 have the same screen dimensions — 5.94 inches by 2.98 inches — so a screen protector for either one will work.
