With the rising popularity of phablet-sized smartphones, protective screens are less of a luxury and more of a first line of defense. Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max — with its 6.5-inch, 2688 × 1242-resolution OLED screen — is among the largest of iPhones, so you don’t want to leave it vulnerable to drops, bumps, and damaging impacts.
Though the iPhone has scratch-resistant glass with an oleophobic coating, a second layer of protection can’t hurt. Some screens add “anti-theft” features that limit visibility for third parties, while most feature the 9H hardness rating, a basic scratch test using the hardest lead pencil point (9H) against the glass. Any substance harder than your screen will cause scratches to appear on your smartphone glass.
The thickness and hardness of glass screen protectors are designed to absorb the impact. If a drop damages your screen protector, simply remove it from your undamaged phone and replace it with a new screen. Glass screen protectors are especially effective because their appearance is similar to your phone’s original screen, allowing for vibrant colors and optical clarity. Here are a few good ones currently available.

It may be a bit pricey compared to other glass protectors in its class, but Zagg’s InvisibleShield Glass+ Screen Protector offers a lot of protective tech for your iPhone and you.

It has a specifically engineered tempered glass resists impact, scratches, and smudging. An oil-resistant screen keeps your phone clean to enhance viewing clarity. The glass screen is coupled with a VisionGuard blue light filter alongside bacteria-fighting properties for permanent antimicrobial treatment. The company says the antimicrobial technology — embedded in the glass — kills nearly 100% of surface bacteria. The protective Eyesafe layer filters harmful high-energy visible (HEV) light from your phone’s screen to protect your eyes.
