Should You Use a Matte Screen Protector on Your iPad Pro?

I got sucked in! I decided to try out a Tech Armor Matte Screen Protector on my iPad Pro. After two years, I gave in to the idea to try it.

  • In this video I’m showing you everything from what you get in the package.
  • My struggles with installing it – and frustrations.
  • And, I’ll give my opinion on why I personally would either recommend or not recommend it.

DISCLAIMER

Remember, this is my PERSONAL opinion! No one sent me or paid me for this video. I purchased this product outright.

Also, I didn’t realize that Tech Armor had SO many versions of their protectors for the iPad Pro. I count 5 for the 12.9 alone. I purchased the Anti Glare version. Look for the HD version to see if it might work better for you. I would if I had known that was there. I simply went via the link a friend sent.

You can purchase yours here – these are links to HD versions and are affiliate links:

12.9 iPad Pro Tech Armor Screen Protector

10.9 iPad Pro Tech Armor Screen Protector

9.7 iPad Pro Tech Armor Screen Protector

This video I’ll show you how the Tech Armor matte screen protector goes on and how it worked for me. Remember, this is my own PERSONAL opinion. You should buy and try things on your own to draw your own conclusions. I purchased this protector with my own money. This is not sponsored.

    Hi and thanks for your video. I too bought the Tech Armor matt screen protector and was so disappointed that it detracted from the retina screen! I do use notability, but also I edit (some) photos in Lightroom mobile and boy do I notice a difference. You say that you don’t use a screen protector at all even with the Apple Pencil; there is a product out there called Paperlike from Germany; again its a matt screen protector which is far more expensive than the Tech Armor and I’m reluctant to try it because I am totally unsure whether it would diminish the ipad’s retina display. As you say, these ipads aren’t cheap so why put something on that gives you something like an old 35mm film!

    Anyway, you obviously use the Apple Pencil – do you get used to the ‘slippy, slidey’ feel of the ipad pro’s screen when using it? I so want to remove this Tech Armor protector, but am concerned that my note writing will be totally illegible!

      I did review the Paperlike in a post here on the blog. Last week I posted a chit chat drawing video explaining why I’m not going to use one.
