Default Anti glare screen protector

Anyone have good experience with a anti glare screen protector for the iPad Mini 6. Lots of choices out there from 10 bucks to over $50, mixed reviews on all of them.

I use an anti glare protector on my full size iPad Pro and can’t say it’s that great dealing with glare. However it does protect the screen from user abuse. I’ve replaced mine twice after cracking them while the iPad screen itself is okay.

If your screen is dimming it’s probably getting too hot in the cockpit. iPads will try to protect themselves from heat by first dimming before shutting down.

I've used the Armorglas one from mygoflight on my mini 5 and 6.

Very happy. No glare, no fingerprints.

I actually prefer the ipad with this on it over the plain ipad.

I have had very good luck with SuperShieldz on all my iPhones and iPads. It also is what I think is low cost.

Early on, I tried a few different brands and this is the one that worked the best for me at a price I was willing to pay.
