Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

how to add a screen protector on your iphoneAdding a screen protector to your iPhone or iPod is a must when it comes to keeping your Apple device’s screen free of scratches.  All you have to do is take a look on eBay at all the iPhones and iPads for sale and you’ll see many of them say things like “screen scratched”, “marked screen” or “faint scratches on screen”.  If you decide to go without a screen protector and something happens, you’ll never forgive yourself!  But if you do need an iPhone repair or iPod repair you know where to come!

You must take care when applying a screen protector to your iPhone or iPod otherwise it can gather dirt, get smudges and like the title implies, get bubbles trapped under the surface.  Bubbled are caused when there is lint on the screen or when there is air under the screen protector.
