Ipad Screens Scratch Resistant?

Hi there,

I am in the process of setting up 45 iPads and was thinking about buying the clear plastic-like screen covers to protect the screens, however was advised that it isn't necessary as the iPad screen itself is scratch resistant.

I thought I would just check if anyone had used iPads without the clear plastic-like screen covers and how they found the screens without them?

Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi Helen

    Screen protectors unecessary. The gorilla glass is super tough. Worked with iPad 1s yesterday - 3 years extensive classroom use and not a scratch- no camera but! Talk to the kids about clean fingers. It is much easier to clean screens without the 'protective' film. Covers may depend on age - for younger kids especially, surround foam is better, protects all corners and when they fall (they will) protects the screen. A cover only protects the screen if it falls shut 8-} I have an options on covers but as this is a non commercial channel contact me separately
