Best iPad Pro screen protectors in 2023

We did the hard work for you to highlight the best screen protectors for both 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro models.

Apple's iPad Pro is one of the best tablets you can buy right now, and it also represents the best of the company's iPad lineup. Apple is yet to refresh its Pro lineup for 2023, but the 2022 models come with many noteworthy upgrades over its predecessor, including one of the newer M2 chips, improved cameras, and the new Apple Pencil hover features. They also come in two sizes: a smaller one with an 11-inch panel and a relatively bigger model with a 12.9-inch display. Regardless of your pick, you get a beautiful mini-LED backlit Liquid Retina display with Apple's ProMotion technology for faster refresh rates.
