The first thing I did with my lovely new iPad, right after walking out the door of the Apple store with it, was get its spectacular new screen protected.
Luckily for me, there is a Ghost Armor kiosk just a few steps away from my local Apple store, so I shot straight over there after buying the new iPad. I’ve been using Ghost Armor to protect my iPad screens since back in 2010 and have written here before about how good both their product and service are.
Today my experience with them was even better than before, and that’s saying something – trust me. The young gentleman running the kiosk was there bright and early before the Apple store opened its doors, and he had good straight answers for us on our new iPad questions right away. Namely that the iPad 2 screen protectors would work fine on the new iPad, as the screen size has not changed, but the back cover protection will not work as the camera hole is larger and the dimensions are just a little different. They’ll have new back covers available within a few days I expect.
Apart from the great quality of the Ghost Armor screen protector itself, one of the main reasons I use their kiosk is that I am a complete clod when it comes to installing screen protectors myself. This morning mine was applied to the new iPad in around 10 minutes. I didn’t even have to go away and get a coffee. By the time I had a quick chat with the kiosk manager and paid up ($40 plus tax) my gorgeous new iPad screen was protected and ready to go.
The install is spot-on perfect, and just in case you’re wondering Yes the awesome new display looks just as awesome with the barely noticeable Ghost Armor screen protector on it – and now I know it’s safe from nicks and scratches and all that kinda bad stuff. :)

What are you all doing to protect the new iPad screen? Are you letting it go naked or using a protector of some kind?
