You’ve spent a decent amount of money to get your hands on the iPhone 6S, one of Apple’s most powerful smartphones to date, so you’ll want it to last quite a while. The best way to ensure that happens is to buy some accessories designed to protect it.
One of the key features of the iPhone 6S is 3D Touch, which is built into the Retina display, and if you use your phone regularly, it’s going to become one of the many features you’ll grow to love. So, to protect that gorgeous display and retain access to all of its features, you’ll need a screen protector made with the iPhone 6S in mind. It’s just a matter of figuring out which one to get — below are a few of our favorites.
Zagg InvisibleShield HDX ($25)
The Zagg InvisibleShield HDX is sure to protect your precious iPhone 6S from any unfortunate accidents that may befall it, while maintaining the display’s crystal clear image. Handy tabs make applying the protector a breeze, and it’s just as easy to remove. Thanks, in part, to the clever materials Zagg uses, even the clumsiest person will be pleased with the performance of the InvisibleShield, as small scratches disappear by themselves thanks to its self-healing ability. And if it’s ever severely damaged, Zagg offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on every screen protector. For as long as you own your iPhone 6S, they’ll replace a worn or damaged InvisibleShield for free.
Moshi iVisor Glass ($26+)
Moshi’s iVisor Glass is a 0.3-millimeter, round-edged screen protector that covers the entire front of the iPhone 6S, much like a traditional face-plate. The iVisor Glass ensures both your display and the oft-ignored outer edges of the iPhone will also remain scratch-free, and you won’t have to worry about wiping the screen with your finger or a cloth to get rid of unwanted smudges or oils. Plus, while it might be challenging to apply a screen protector without creating a bunch of air bubbles, Moshi guarantees you’ll walk away without producing any annoying bubbles that blemish your display.
Tech21 Impact Shield ($35)
The Impact Shield boasts an ultra-thin, multi-layer protector that uses some of the same materials used to create bulletproof glass. Tech21’s offering is also perfect for people who use their phones a good deal while outside, as its anti-glare capabilities will enable you to maintain perfect clarity; no more trying to put yourself between your phone and the sun just to make out what’s on the screen. Even better is that, in the event the Impact Shield fails you, you can get it replaced quickly and, best of all, for free. That said, we still wouldn’t recommend shooting it — you know, just to be safe.
Daswise’s full-screen, edge-to-edge protector is the best available at its price point, which makes it hard to ignore. It’s another protector that covers the entirety of the iPhone’s front face, and when paired with the right case, it’s going to be very difficult to notice there’s a screen protector applied at all. Be it a small drop, or a dramatic fall from more than 8 feet up, Daswise’s tempered glass protector will do the job. And with the money you save, you can buy screen protectors for your other devices, too.
Spigen GLAS.tR SLIM HD ($8+)
Spigen’s GLAS.tR SLIM HD is a tempered glass protector with rounded edges that aims to offer more comfort when holding your iPhone. The kit only comes with one protector, but the bundled wings make its application as easy as possible, and save you from having to place your hands on the phone during the process. Wet and dry wipes are also included in the package, along with a microfiber cloth and a dust removal sticker. Be careful applying it, however, because the GLAS.tR isn’t covered by a lifetime warranty like other screen protectors on our list. The company only offers a discounted replacement, and only within a year of your original purchase date.
