Belkin halts sales of $40 iPhone X 'InvisiGlass Ultra' screen protector after consumers complain it cracks easily


Protecting the screen on your phone is important, especially if it's the $1,000 iPhone X we speak about and when you consider that cracking it could cost you hundreds of dollars in replacement costs.

That is why a simple case and a screen protector go a long way.

One of the more popular options for a screen protector for the iPhone X is the Belkin 'InvisiGlass Ultra', a costly $40 screen protector that you can have installed with a special machine at Apple Stores. For this price, you expect to get an excellent product with great durability, but unfortunately that has not been the case and nearly a month after sales started, Belkin has now halted sales of the screen protector after multiple complaints say it cracks way too easily.


While Belkin initially denied allegations of poor quality of its iPhone X InvisiGlass Ultra, it seems that the company has done some further research into the recurring complaints and has found fault with the product. This is what has lead to Belkin halting sales at the moment. The company is working on an improved version of the screen protector currently.

A new version of the Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra screen protector for the iPhone X will go on sale at Apple Stores in January and from Belkin around January or February, according to a Belkin spokesperson. It's currently not clear whether consumers will be eligible for a refund for the discontinued InvisiGlass Ultra protector.

Belkin also released the anti-glare and tempered glass screen protectors for iPhone X in late October, and both of those are still available.

iPhone didn't any kind of screen protector, since they already use "the strongest glass ever" on that smartphone /s

What is wrong with letting people know about these. I am sure if you had bought one you would want to know.

Are people expecting to have a screen protector as hard as diamond. Even the ones from ZAGG crack easily.

The article clearly states the screen protector cracked after merely being tapped with a pen, is that what you normally expect from your screen protectors?

Moment of thinking, pointing out little details you don't want your fingers obstructing, daily use of the S-Pen on my Note 8, etc...

Tempered Glass develops microfeatures if not tested properly. The only brand I know that manually tests each glass is ZeroDamage tempered glass by SaharaCase.
