You'll want to keep that gorgeous nearly bezel-less screen looking pristine. One way to do that is to use a screen protector. Whether you prefer glass, plastic, or even liquid, there is a screen protector for you. Here are some of the best.
There is just one screen protector in this package but it does ship via Amazon Prime so you could have it even before your new 11-inch iPad Pro. It has all of the usual features, plus curved edges and it's just .3mm thick.
This one is not glass at all, it's a soft PET film. It's definitely lighter and thinner than glass, but also harder to apply without bubbles. Plastic is not going to offer the same impact resistance as glass. Also note that while this two-pack is very inexpensive, shipping costs more than twice as much as the product itself and it may take more than a month to ship.
Here is something totally different. Rather than a physical barrier, LIQUIPEL is a liquid nanocoating that you can apply to any screen. Application is simple: you just clean your screen, wipe on the LIQUIPEL, and then buff it once dry. It comes with a "You Break It, We Fix It" guarantee. It's a little scary to trust something you can't even see, but it's better than no protection at all.
Make your iPad feel more like paper. If you're an artist, you take a lot of notes, and/or you use an Apple Pencil, you're really going to enjoy this. You get two in a package.
I'm pretty careful with my iPads, so I'm going to give the LIQUIPEL (opens in new tab) a shot. If you're looking for a physical barrier, I'd snag one of the glass options, such as the AVIDET (opens in new tab) and have it right away.
