That iPad Air has a gorgeous screen, and you should definitely keep it scratch-free and safe. These screen protectors get the job done, and some even add extra bonuses, like anti-glare and matte finishes. Plus, some come in packs of two, so you can get your money's worth, or even just have a spare in case something goes wrong with your first installation attempt.

Our favorite is the amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector, because it's highly affordable, good quality, and you get two in one pack, so you can have a spare handy. We've used this brand for protecting the screens on multiple electronic devices, and have never had an issue. Another one we like is the iCarez Anti-Glare Matte Screen Protector. The anti-glare coating and matte finish make it easier to see your screen when there are light sources nearby. Plus, it doesn't deter from the responsiveness of the screen at all. Whatever option you end up going with, know that investing in a screen protector is a terrific idea: your iPad Air (2019) will thank you!
