Apple’s new screen protector program is coming to Apple Store locations in the United States and other countries today. The program was first mentioned and rolled out to Japanese Apple Store locations last week and allows customers to get a Belkin screen protector carefully applied to their iPhone in store. At Apple Stores across America, customers can purchase a Belkin screen protector and have it applied in store by an Apple Store employee. The program supports only Apple’s latest iPhone models in both 4.7 and 5.5 inch variants: the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The service looks to apply screen protectors to the iPhone, eliminating common errors like air bubbles. For the official experience, Apple employees will use a cloth to remove any dust from the iPhone before applying the protector with the mechanical system. As a guarantee, after application, unsatisfied customers can ask the Apple employee to repeat the process with a new cover to get the fit just right. The service is free with the purchase of the appropriate Belkin screen protector for your iPhone.
Screen protectors can be purchased and installed on your own, albeit Apple’s service offers the peace of mind of the brand behind it. This marks a significant change for Apple, which just a few years ago refused to sell screen protectors from their store shelves.
