Recently, we’ve had comments on tempered glass screen protectors for the iPhone 6/6S. On certain devices, the tempered glass is creating what we have coined as a “halo effect”. Contradictory to how it sounds, this is a frustrating phenomenon occurring where the screen protector isn’t properly adhering to the edge of the device.
We have tested a range of brands and iPhones to see whether this is an issue caused by our product, or a handset problem that is out of our control. It seems that the problem is due to temperamental iPhone 6/6S screens. After trying multiple brands of screen protectors with a few devices around the office, we found that the “halo effect” consistently appears on one specific iPhone 6S. Below is a side by side comparison of two iPhone 6S’s.
After looking into this problem further, it seems to be happening on a global scale with other tempered glass manufacturers. We believe this is due to a batch of iPhones that have a slightly different glass composition causing the edge of the screen protector to lift. See the links below.
In conclusion, we will continue our investigation and will be dealing with any issues that arise on a case-to-case basis. If any of your customers are having this problem, we ask you to contact your territory representative.
Thank you all for your cooperation with this issue.
