With the iPhone 14 series, Apple brought back the Plus variant after the 8 series. And thus, we now have two big boys in the 14 series. While both of these devices come with Ceramic Shield protection, it is better to secure the screen. Besides the fall protection, screen protectors prevent your iPhone screen from getting scratched.
But while there are only 2 big iPhones in the 14 series, there could be 2 billion screen protectors (obviously, I’m exaggerating, but you got the point). And finding the right screen guard for your iPhone 14 Plus or 14 Pro Max could be a bit time-consuming, but you don’t need to worry as I have saved your time with my best picks.
So stick to the screen, and let’s get started.
1. Belkin ultra glass screen protector – Editor’s choice
While all screen guards for iPhone 14 Plus or Max will appear the same, you can notice the difference with screen protectors from Belkin to regular ones when you start to use them. While maintaining the great touch responsiveness of your iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Max, it has great protection too.
Belkin promises that their screen guards are 2X stronger than regular tempered glass guards, thanks to the UltraGlass created using the chemically strengthening process. To give you more context, they have used Lithium Aluminosilicate (LAS) in this product, which offers better strength, flexibility, and scratch resistance.
This chemical is the reason behind Belkin’s 2x stronger promise. As for the application, you will get an easy align tray apart from the cleaning cloth and dust removal sticker in the box.
Yes, the price is a bit on the premium side, but remember that the 14 Plus weighs 200g, and the 14 Pro Max weighs 240g. So it’s good to invest in a good tempered glass for it rather than depending on Apple support or the Apple self-service repair program to replace your iPhone’s broken screen later, right?
- Comes with align tray
- Promises 2X durability than regular glass protectors
- Good touch response
- But expensive
2. ESR tempered glass screen protector – Military-grade protection
If you are someone who is sure to break your iPhone’s screen faster than breaking people’s hearts, then I think you should consider the ESR Tempered Glass for your iPhone 14 Plus or 14 Pro Max. It comes with military-grade quality glass that is promised to hold against 33lbs of weight.
If you look at the product, you will see that the screen guard covers the entire screen and only lefts a small cutout for the earpiece, but that shouldn’t concern you. As ESR promises to not affect the Face ID recognition and guarantees the same scanning quality.
Other than that, ESR has been in this space for quite some time, and if you look at the general consumer reviews, you can see the users appreciating the great customer support from the brand. The alignment tool is also easy to use and guarantees a worry-free installation process.
While it is nitpicking, I think they could have improved the installation kit quality to have a more tension-free installation.
- Military-grade protection
- Full-screen edge-to-edge covering
- Comes with an installation kit
- Installation kit quality can be improved
3. Spigen tempered glass screen protector – Easy installation
The best thing I like about this screen protector is that it comes with an installation kit, similar to the one we found with the Belkin on the list. This installation kit will help people like me, who are best at making a mess, to install tempered glass without breaking much sweat.
And even after applying it, this case won’t affect your iPhone 14’s touch response; it will be as smooth if you use it without a screen protector. Also, Spigen has been making screen protectors for iPhones for quite some time, and since they have that experience, it’s better to go with an established brand rather than an unknown one.
While the installation kit makes the screen guard application easy, it may not effectively remove the bubble from the corners. But with some pressing around the corners, you can eliminate these air bubbles.
If you are not interested in spending a premium on a tempered glass protector for iPhone 14 Plus or iPhone 14 Pro Max, this one from Spigen is the best.
- Comes with an easy installation kit
- Precise dimensions
- Retains touch response of the screen
- The Installation kit may not be fully effective in removing air bubbles
4. TORRAS diamond shield – Invisible but strong
If you are a fan of the Ceramic Shield on iPhones and want the same quality screen guard for your iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max, Torras Diamond Shield is a good option to consider.
They use the same glass material as a ceramic shield and an additional dual ion-exchange Technology, ensuring you get your iPhone’s best protection. Since this glass is edge to edge, it promises to be invisible once you apply it and promises to not affect the touch response.
If you have sticky hands, this has covered you with an oleophobic coating, and there is also an EyeCare layer to ensure your eye stays safe from blue light while using your device. Like the other options in our list, the Torras diamond shield also comes with an installation frame for error-free installation.
Despite all these features, this screen guard’s price seemed a bit too high for me, hence its 4th position.
- Promises to use the same quality material as a ceramic shield
- Comes with an oleophobic coating and Blue light filter layer
- Installation kit available with tempered glass
- Expensive considering the features
5. LK screen protector: Value for money
Like the other mentioned products in the list, this product also comes with an installation kit that promises an automatic dust removal design and provides an easy installation process. And what’s a screen guard without talking about the hardness?
This glass protector comes with a 9H+ hardness, is military-grade certified, and comes with shock resistance. This screen guard also has an oleophobic coating, so you don’t have to worry about smudges. One thing liked about this product is that the mounting box can also act as a mobile phone holder.
Since this is a new brand, I’m not sure if you should go with it with full confidence, and hence it came on the last. And, it doesn’t have anything special to stand out from others.
- 9H+ hardness
- The Mounting box can act as a mobile holder
- Oleophobic coating
- Nothing special to offer for the price
6. OtterBox Alpha Flex series – Great after-sales support
If you have checked out our list for the best belt clip cases for iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max (if not, you can check it out now too, but after reading this list!), you might have noticed our suggestion for checking out the OtterBox case.
I suggested that case because of how much importance to quality the people at OtterBox gave to their products. You can hope for the same with their screen guards too. According to OtterBox, their tempered glass is made using specially engineered materials.
While there are multiple opinions about the installation kit, there has been wide appreciation for the brand’s customer support regarding the warranty. If you were wondering, does this screen protector have a warranty? You now have the answer.
- Made with specially engineered material
- Good customer support
- Has brand warranty
- Poor installation kit
7. dbrand tempered screen protector – Case from robots
If you are someone who prefers getting screen protectors only from established brands, the tempered glass screen protector from dbrand is the one. Apart from the brand name, dbrand’s screen protector for iPhone 14 and 14 Pro Max also promises to protect your device from falls and scratches.
Apart from that, the glass covers almost the entire device, except the earpiece, thereby making it almost invisible after applying. The glass has also been polished to ensure you get a good touch response.
To be honest, the only bone I have to pick is the fact that it comes without an installation kit despite its premium pricing. However, if you want one of the best protection screens for your iPhone 14 Plus or iPhone 14 Pro Max, this is the right choice.
- Edge-to-edge coverage
- Smooth response
- No installation kit
8. UAG glass screen protector shield – Guaranteed durability
UAG has been in the industry for quite some time with its rugged cases, and if you are a fan of it, then I may not need to explain how good they are when providing high-quality cases. The same quality can be said for their screen protectors too.
Even if you have never tried an Urban Armour Gear product, you can go with this screen protector without any doubt.
It has double-strengthened glass that keeps fingerprints at bay. While an installation kit is provided with the product, it has been criticized for not being properly aligned. Also, more focus on the quality of the installation kit would have been appreciated.
- Strengthened glass
- Fingerprint resistant
- Imprecise alignment of the installation kit

9. Totallee screen protector – Total coverage
Despite being one of the most expensive products on the list, the Totallee tempered glass for iPhone 14 Plus and 14 Pro Max doesn’t come with any installation kit. The reason? They are confident about the bubble-free installation process promised with this product.
But I think Totallee totally forgot about the misalignment issues caused by not using an installation kit while applying a screen protector. If we get past that, Totallee is similar to others on our list but promises to be thinner and more durable. Like others on our list, this screen protector is also case-friendly.
- Thin yet strong
- Case friendly
- Made of super durable glass
- Very expensive
10. Mase Home screen protector – Affordability comes at a cost
You should consider this if you want a screen protector with a notch cutout for your iPhone 14 Plus, but it’s a full-screen glass for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Other than that, the Mase screen protector comes with almost every option that you are looking for in a good screen protector.
This case has it all – protection, good touch response, oleophobic coating, and a warranty. Yes! It does come with a year’s warranty, thus giving you a piece of mind even. And the best part is that this is not very expensive, yet you get a free installation kit that promises a bubble-free installation.
Although Mase promises a bubble-free installation, their screen protectors for previous iPhone versions did get some negative reviews.
- Installation kit
- Oleophobic coating
- Quality control issues
