The iPad mini, as with any Apple device, is sleek and sophisticated—something you should be proud to carry around and show your friends. An iPad mini with a cracked or damaged screen, however—not so cool to carry around.
If you want to keep your tablet looking sharp, you might want to look at your options for iPad mini screen protection. Even though the screen is designed to hold up under typical use, we all know that accidents happen. With a screen protector, you can breathe a little easier, knowing that your iPad mini is safe and sound.

Although a screen protector is one of the most invisible ways to protect your MacBook Air while preserving its sleek design, installing a screen protector can be a challenge, especially if you've never done it before. Thankfully, the pros at Zagg have divulged some of their best secrets for getting a screen protector installed perfectly. Here are some of the tips they have to offer:
1. Wash your hands first.
Sounds a bit like your mom telling you to wash up for dinner, but Zagg's first tip is to wash your hands before trying to install a screen protector. The skin oils on your hands can leave fingerprints on the device and the screen protector, which can make for a frustrating process of do-overs.
2. Line it up correctly.
What starts out as a slight misalignment at the top of the screen can turn into a lopsided installation job by the time you get to the bottom of the screen. Take the time to line up the screen protector carefully at the top edge and sides before applying the screen protector to your MacBook Air. If you're not patient enough to do this, we recommend asking a friend who is more of a perfectionist to do it for you.
3. Use a squeegee to remove bubbles.
Zagg screen protectors for MacBook Air come with a squeegee to help you work out all the little bubbles that get trapped underneath the screen protector. You can also use a credit card to work out the bubbles. If things just aren't lining up right or you get too many bubbles, you can always remove the screen protector and start over again.
4. Get the corners and edges to stick.
Other than bubbles, getting the corners and edges to adhere is one of the trickiest parts about installing
It's the never-ending debate: does the iPhone 5 need protection or not? While most Apple fans like the sleek, slim design of the iPhone 5 without any embellishments, the thought of scratches and scuff marks is worth adding extra protection. No one wants to look at a screen marred with scratches and fingerprints. We have a whole range of protective iPhone cases to keep your screen safe and sound, however sometimes a little additional protection will go a long way too.
Why a screen protector?
The iPhone 5 screen is constructed with Gorilla glass, which means it can withstand quite a bit of abuse without getting scratched or cracked. But as accidental (and intentional) drop tests have shown, the Gorilla is not without its weaknesses. Too much abuse will crack, scratch, or dull the glass.
So how does a piece of plastic protect the screen?
Good question. If Gorilla Glass can't get the job done, how is adding a plastic screen protector going to help? Can a thin piece of plastic really protect your iPhone if you drop it?
Zagg screen protectors are made from the same material designed to protect military helicopter blades from damage due to dust, dirt, and debris. The strength of the Gorilla Glass screen is magnified by this military-grade screen protector for iPhone 5, adding more protection than the glass alone.
What about drop protection?
Although Gorilla Glass holds its own fairly well when it comes to scratches, cracked screens are another story. According to a drop test by one reviewer, an iPhone 5 with Gorilla Glass cracked when dropped face down on a tile surface, while the iPhone 5 with a Zagg screen protector wasn't damaged at all when dropped. The same reviewer found that filing the iphone 5 screen
