How to Remove an iPhone Screen Protector

 

You have a tempered glass screen protector on your iPhone but need to remove it. Have no fear. Below is our simple, step-by-step guide on how to take off a tempered glass screen protector:

 

Step 1: Assemble tools and prepare

Like any other project, having the right equipment for the job will make the whole process go a lot more smoothly. Fortunately, the recommended tools for this task can commonly be found in most households. Here's what you'll need:

    • a toothpick
    • a credit card or business card
    • an alcohol wipe and microfiber cloth (optional) 
Step 1: Assemble tools and prepare

Step 2: Lift the corner

Start on the top right corner of your iPhone and use the toothpick to carefully lift the screen protector glass away from the screen. You only have to lift the protector off just enough to slide a card underneath. 

Step 2: Lift the corner

Step 3: Loosen the edges

Take a credit card or business card and insert it under the screen protector, about 1/2" toward the center of the phone. Next, slide the card around the entire perimeter of the iPhone until you return to the initial position. Repeat this process one additional time for good measure.

Step 4: Slowly remove

With the card still inserted at the top of the iPhone, slide the card all the way under the glass across the entire width of the iPhone. Slowly slide the card down towards the bottom of the phone, while simultaneously lifting the screen protector away from the screen. The key is to do this slowly as possible, as to not apply too much pressure to the glass (which may cause it to bend and crack). 

Step 4: Slowly remove

Step 5: Finishing touches

Once you have successfully removed the screen protector, set it aside, and use an alcohol wipe and microfiber cloth to clean and dry your screen. Voilà!
