With search engines, I can find supposedly dustproof screen protectors for sale? e.g.: http://www.amazon.ca/Clear-Scratch-Resistant-Screen-Protectors/dp/B003JBRSXY http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPhone-Protector-Washable-Resistant/dp/B00A2A0D7S

Do these screen protectors actually repel dust? Do they actually end up less dusty than other screens/screen protectors?

  • Nothing to do with Apple products.

    These comments seem to misunderstand the scope of the site. Our help pages explicitly say that questions about "third-party hardware... when associated for use with Apple products" are on-topic. Questions asking for shopping/buying recommendations are always off-topic, but I don't think this quite falls into that topic; this question is asking about a general categories of products and asks whether they are "for real" (whether they actually work), which I think is OK.

  • I'm wondering if this would be a better question for the product page on Amazon? Dec 3 '13 at 16:01
  • Why are you so concerned about dust? You should really be scared of the oils from your hands instead. Dec 10 '13 at 16:28
  • I am more persnickety than concerned.

The point of these protectors is not to keep dust off the screen protector but the device. They are Scratch/Dust resistant. With all protector, they will get scratch, your device will not. That is what they are say, not that it will help your screen, but your device.
