Best screen protectors for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus


Scratches and cracks - two things that you certainly don't want to see on the screen of your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. While the iPhone 7 family comes with the toughest screens Apple has ever made (for a phone), they're certainly not invincible, and, sooner or later, you're bound to see them damaged in one way or another. But this is where screen protectors come in.

If you're on the hunt for a screen protector to keep your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus safe, we've got some of the best options presented below. We've included models for all budgets (both glass and plastic ones), in alphabetical order. Except for one model, all the screen protectors seen here are compatible with most cases - should you need full, all-around protection for your iPhone.

Belkin ScreenForce InvisiGlass screen protector




Pros

  • Very thin, yet durable glass sheet
  • Anti-fingerprint coating
  • Best overall protection
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Only covers the flat portion of the screen
 
The ScreenForce InvisiGlass protector from Belkin is ultra-thin (0.2 mm), thus preserving your touchscreen's sensitivity and optical clarity. Despite its thinness, the ScreenForce InvisiGlass is great at protecting the display against shatters, scratches, and scuffs, thanks to its 3-layer flexible nature. However, this protector does not fully cover the slightly curved portions of the iPhone 7's screen (towards the edges).

IQ Shield Liquid Shield screen protector 




Pros

  • Covers round edges and corners
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons

  • Not glass, you may not like the texture
  • Attracts fingerprints
  • May not be compatible with protective cases

Designed to fully cover the screen of your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus (including the round edges and corners), the IQ Shield Liquid Shield protector is comprised of 4 layers: an anti-yellowing UV coating, a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) layer for elasticity and transparency, a tough protective liner, and an adhesive bottom layer. This mix will certainly keep scratches away from your screen.

JETech 3-Pack screen protector 




Pros

  • Cheap
  • 3 screen protectors included
  • Easy application

Cons

  • Only covers the flat area of the screen
  • Not glass, you may not like the texture
  • Not ideal if you want serious protection against drops

JETech is offering three screen protectors for just $4.99 - perfect for anyone not looking to spend a lot, yet still needing protection for their iPhone's display. Made out of PET (polyethylene terephthalate), the JETech screen cover offers reliable protection against scratches (as in: the cover may scratch, but the screen won't), but not much beyond that.

Tech Armor Premium HD Clear screen protector 




Pros

  • Cheap
  • 3 screen protectors included

Cons

  • Only covers the flat area of the screen
  • Not glass, you may not like the texture
  • Not ideal if you want serious protection against drops

Here's another PET-made screen protector that comes in a pack of 3, this time from Tech Armor. The cover can keep your screen scratch-free, but you shouldn't trust it to save it from shattering if you're dropping your iPhone too often.

Yootech Tempered Glass screen protector




Pros

  • Affordable
  • 2 tempered glass protectors included
  • Lifetime Warranty

Cons

  • Only covers the flat area of the screen

If you want a tempered glass screen protector that doesn't cost too much, try the Yootech one. This 0.3mm-thin protector provides superior transparency, and does not hinder touchscreen sensitivity. It's also pretty good at protecting your screen against scratches and drops - although, like most covers, it doesn't go all the way towards the edges.
