    Question Screen protectors?

    I've read that even though the new iPad Pro 9.7" is basically the same size of the Air 2, cases aren't really compatible. But are screen protectors compatible? Can I get an Invisible Sheild for the Air 2 and have it fit correctly on the iPad Pro 9.7"?

    i believe you can, it's the same exact size. They talked about the smart cover from the iPad Air 2 wont work with the iPad Pro (9.7in) due to the magnets on the side. i could be wrong. and also remember all those new speakers on the new iPad Pro, so that's another possibility why the cases vary.

    I just went to Best Buy and got the glass screen protector for $50 and it works perfectly. Nothing has changed for that

    I bought a Zagg Glass at a Target today. They priced matched Amazon at $31.70. Much better than $50. It's the same as the Air 2 Zagg.

    The 9.7" iPad Pro has the same dimensions as the iPad Air 2. I looked that up a couple weeks ago when my dad bought the Air 2, he also picked up an Urban Armor Gear case for it, that was made for the Pro 9.7". Fits great.

    I have Air 2 Apple leather case still. That wouldn't work with the Pro 9.7 due to camera bump and it covering the flash. Also, it covered the top speakers so it took away from the stereo sound. Using an Air 2 with a Pro case could work but I wouldn't recommend using a Pro with an Air 2 case.
