While OtterBox is well known for its line of cases for iOS devices, the company has finally moved into the screen protector market with the introduction of its Clearly Protected line for the iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini. All four protectors in the line thankfully use a dry application method, meaning users won’t have to squirt water or other liquid on the device during installation. I’ve learned that while installing many screen protectors, the dry method is much more reliable and easy to master. The 360° is meant to be a standalone protector for either the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4/4S. Glossy, high-strength polyurethane material protects the entire device. It will retail for $29.95 Available for the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 and up, Clean is a matte-finished screen protector that reduces glare while protecting from smudges and fingerprints. The iPhone protector retails for $19.95 while the iPad version is $29.95. Made for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S, iPad mini, and iPad 2 and up, the pictured Vibrant protector is made of glossy material that maintains a screen’s clarity. The iPhone version is $19.95 while the iPad protector is $29.95. The iPad mini version will set you back $24.95. Privacy is made from quadlaminar polyester and prevents viewing of images and texts from all four side views. The iPhone 5 version is $24.95, while the edition for the iPad 2 and up is $59.95. Vibrant, Clean, and Privacy are all designed to be used with cases as well. For more information about any of the products, visit OtterBox’s site.
