Apple starts applying iPhone screen protectors in-store

Apple Stores in Japan recently began offering in-store screen protector installation, Macotakara reports. Through a partnership with Belkin the Cupertino company can now help you protect your phone, for an added fee of course.

Apple is using a special Belkin TrueClear Pro system to quickly install the screen protectors. It’s a simple process requiring a special device that closes around your iPhone. If you’re unhappy with the results the company will offer a do-over for free.

The price can range between about $19 to $37 depending on your iPhone model and the type of screen protector you want. Apple’s offering a variety of options, including the Belkin Anti-Glare Screen, Anti-Glare Protector and TrueClear InvisiGlass Screen Protector. They’re all available for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus.

For now the new service is limited to Japan, but it’s expected to expand soon. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can get an iPhone screen protector installed by Apple in the U.S. as well. For now check out a video of the installation process below.
