As expected, the brand new iPad Pro has arrived. Despite a low-key introduction courtesy COVID-19 outbreak, the iPad seems to have set the ball on a roll with a series of top-tear specs including custom-designed LiDAR Scanner, pro-grade camera and of course the support for the long-awaited trackpad. Needless to say, these specs appear to have made even the ageless MacBook Pros look old-fashioned – let alone PCs that are already struggling to match the beastly speed of the iPad. With these high-grade specs comes the responsibility to safeguard the iPad Pro. Having just wrapped up a lineup of the top keyboard cases for the new iPad Pro, I’m all set to round up the best 2020 iPad Pro screen protectors (for both 11-inch and 12.9-inch models), considering the ever-mounting repair cost of the retina display.

What separates “Paperlike” from other screen protectors for iPad Pro is the Nanodots surface that features microbeads across the screen for enhanced sensitivity. As a result, the sensitive surface makes Apple Pencil vibrate slightly, giving you the feeling that you are writing on a piece of paper. Perfect for the folks who use the digital pen to take notes or sketch ideas with precision. Another front where Paperlike has an edge over rivals is the high-definition clarity that improves the viewing experience. And with the precise cutouts, the screen guard makes sure the microphone and front camera work without any hindrance. At $36.59, Paperlike screen guard may seem expensive as compared to rivals but if top-of-the-line quality coupled with high sensitivity is what you are looking, it’s worth giving a shot.
