So, you've got the amazing iPad Air 4 (2020) and you'd like to keep it looking fresh. The best iPad Air 4 screen protectors will certainly keep your screen from getting scratched and might even keep the screen from cracking in a fall. Remember that the iPad Air 4 has a different form factor than the previous model, so screen protectors are not interchangeable with an older iPad Air. However, the iPad Air 4 screen is the same size as the iPad Air 5 as well as the 11-inch iPad Pro released in 2018 and 2020, so those screen protectors are all interchangeable.
This great pack comes with three tempered glass screen protectors, so you have spares to share or keep in case you need to replace it. It also comes with a frame to help you install the screen protector correctly. The glass is just 0.26 millimeters thick and has 99% high-definition clarity, so you'll barely know it's there.
You get two screen protectors for a low price with OKP's option. The 9H hardness tempered glass prevents scratches and scuffs on your screen. The oleophobic coating resists fingerprints and feels smooth to the touch. High touch sensitivity and high definition clarity also mean you'll barely notice it's there.
Don't want people looking over your shoulder? This tempered glass privacy screen protector is tinted, so you can only view your screen when looking at it straight on. Looky-loos will be out of luck.
If you don't want a glass screen protector at all, consider this paper-feel film. The specially-treated surface mimics the feel of a pen on paper when you use your Apple Pencil. You get two screen protectors and an installation kit; each film is just 0.13 mm thick and has a matte finish.
This hard-coated, scratch-resistant PET film can help reduce glare while providing a more paper-like feel to your iPad Air's screen. It is not glass, so it can't crack. It's great for use with the Apple Pencil. You get two in a package, so share with a friend or keep a spare handy.
Do you ever have trouble installing screen protectors correctly? Spigen's EZ Fit Alignment Kit makes installation virtually fool-proof, easy, and even kind of fun. You'll never have to worry about a crooked screen protector again.
