The iPhone 11 has arrived in stores, and like other recent iPhones, most of the device is glass. This design provides for a large display and wireless charging, but it can also leave the iPhone vulnerable to impacts and scratches. For damage and drop protection nothing comes close to using a sturdy case on the iPhone 11. That being said, screen protectors are another option that can be used in conjunction with a case or by themselves.
While there are a lot of ways to keep your iPhone secure and private, there isn't many that protect your device from nosy snoopers in public places. BodyGuardz has launched a new screen protector that not only protects your device from damage, but it also prevents wandering eyes from seeing what's on your display. The SpyGlass screen protector features tempered glass that is only clear when viewed directly. This allows users to access private data in public without the worry of onlookers catching a glimpse of their personal or work related information.
Accessory maker Zagg has released its newest screen protector for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The glass luxe promises to offer edge-to-edge protection and prevent chips thanks to its polycarbonate border that matches the color of your iPhone (except rose gold). The screen protector is made from a premium tempered glass that easily attaches itself to your iPhone display via an adhesive.
What if your iPhone protected itself from damage automatically when dropped? A patent awarded to Apple seeks to build this functionality directly into future mobile devices, analyzing sensor data to detect free fall. The concept continues from there, imagining a system that would react physically to reposition the iPhone in space to minimize damage on impact.
Physics could save the day, along with movement within the iPhone to change the orientation of the falling device. Existing technology could be used, such as the vibration mechanism inside the phone. Alternatively, a headphone jack that is in use could lock around the plug, giving the owner time to catch the headphone cable and cut the fall short. AppleInsider explained the patent titled “Protective mechanism for an electronic device” was awarded this month after being filed early last year.
