4. Supershieldz iPad Pro 11″ Screen Protector (3 Pack)
While the Supershieldz matte screen protector for 2021 11” iPad Pro may not be as strong as the tempered glass counterparts, it delivers slightly better clarity and also tends to feel more sensitive to the touch. So, if you don’t want to compromise with responsiveness, you should give it serious consideration.
Made of top-grade Japanese PET film, the screen guard reduces glare, thereby enhancing the viewing experience. As it’s also free from bubbles, the installation process will be a breeze.

Being pretty smooth, the screen guard also offers a paperlike feeling so that you can sketch and take notes with the desired flair. Another notable feature of this screen defender is the ability to resist bacteria, which can play a vital role in disinfecting your iPhone.

OMOTON is made of durable tempered glass that’s equally efficient at both withstanding impact and offering high-definition clarity. Even on the sensitivity front, it’s second to none so that the multitasking or sketching can remain smooth sailing. As for pricing, the company offers the screen guard in three packs for $11, which puts it in the highly affordable category.

This one is the sort of screen guards that seem to get most things right, and therefore appear to be a good choice at the very first glance. Featuring laser-cut dimensions, JETech fits perfectly on the screen without coming in the way of the front camera and microphones. One of the highlights of this screen guard is the 0.33mm thickness that can withstand accidental drops effortlessly.
For all being a bit thicker than other screen protectors, it’s able to offer maximum transparency and also responds to the touch as expected. Besides, there is also a special coating to fight out dust and sweat. Add to that the compatibility with Face ID and Apple Pencil make it a handy defender for the screen.

Being completely bubble-free, Brydge makes installing screen protectors painless. That’s not all; it also doesn’t make the screen look ugly with the residue when removed.
Another department where Brydge has the edge over other screen guards is the durability. Endowed with the industry-standard hardness, it excels in offering protection to the edge-to-edge Retina display. Better still, it also stands up to the expectation when it comes to providing desired sensitivity.
