This is definitely the way to go if you want to protect your iPad screen. Most all iPads, that I’m aware of, do not have gorilla glass. Therefore most or iPads greens I love unprotected and very vulnerable to crack and break when you drop or knock it off the desk or just one of those times it falls to the ground out of your arms and cracked the screen which is going to cost you a deductible if you do have insurance and if not a lot more to replace the iPad itself. This isn’t a cheap and flimsy plastic cover that sticks to your iPad screen to keep it from scratching only. But it is a tempered glass protector that will crack and break before your iPad screen does if you do happen to drop it or have one of those accidents that you didn’t think would happen. And it cost way less for one of these then it does to replace your iPad or pay the doctor bill to replace it. He sings are awesome and I will not go without one on any of my iPad ever. Especially my little boy’s iPad, (who is nine years old) and has his iPad everywhere in the house and then some and does drop it from time to time despite the fact it is in a really well protective kid proof cover the screen is still vulnerable to cracking or breaking upon certain impacts depending on how it lands when it does drop by accident. In short definitely definitely definitely well worth the $16 from Amazon then replacing an iPad screen or paying a deductible to do so also!
