iPhone 13: still no screen protectors in Apple Store
Those who buy an iPhone 13 from the Apple Store still can’t get screen protectors. It wasn’t available when the smartphones went on sale in late September and it’s still not available today, says iGen
Still no screen protector installation for iPhone 13
Apple warned the teams in Apple Store to cancel the screen protector installation service for iPhone 13, without explaining why. No one knew if the problem came from the machine used to perform the operation or from the protective films (which come from Belkin and OtterBox). Today there is no more information on this subject. The Apple Store teams have only been instructed to return the stock of protective films.
However, it is worth noting that the situation has changed for iPhone 12 and earlier models. They too could no longer benefit from the installation of screen protection films in Apple Store. But everything is back to normal since about ten days.
So you’ve got it: if you want to protect your iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max, you’ll have to do it yourself. It’s not very complicated, you just have to be precise to avoid bubbles. Another advantage: it’s cheaper than the Apple Store service.
