Q & A

Do I really need a screen protector for my iPhone 15?

You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.

You do you, but we do recommend a screen protector on your iPhone 15. You'll also probably want a great iPhone 15 case. While it might seem counterintuitive to protect your glass with more glass, screen protectors do give you some breakage protection and they most definitely prevent the otherwise inevitable microscratches all over your screen. Swapping out your screen protector is easy, spending half a day at the Apple Store for a screen replacement is not.

Will an older screen protector work with the iPhone 15?

Maybe, or maybe not. While the iPhone screen has been 6.1 inches diagonally for several generations, there have been subtle changes. The bezels have gotten smaller, so if you have a screen protector with black edges, you may end up obscuring part of the screen. Some older screen protectors have notches for the iPhone's notch, but now you're getting the Dynamic Island. A notched screen protector would interfere with it. Your best best is to get a screen protector made for the iPhone 15.

Which iPhone 15 screen protector should I get?

Any of the options on this list will serve you well, but I highly recommend the ZAGG InvisibleShield. The quality is excellent, it's stronger than most, and it's easy to install. Best of all, if it does pick up scratches over time or even suffer some serious damage, ZAGG will send you another screen protector for as long as you have your iPhone 15.
