    I recently dropped my phone. It is an iPhone 5s and is cracked on both top corners and is slightly cracked on te screen itself. Once I cracked it I freaked out and put a plastic screen cover over the top as it did not already have one. I have noticed that bits of glass have stuck to the screen cover itself and i am growing concerned

    It is best to go get the screen repaired however it is perfectly fine to put a screen protector on it in the meantime. Applying a screen protector can also prevent parts of the screen from falling off as well as protecting the screen from further damage. Do keep in mind that when you take it off though, bits of glass from the screen may come off with it. Hope this helps!

    I agree as a temporary fix. Only until I could have the screen replaced. Here is a link to Apple's cost for repairing a screen.

    Definitely only a temporary fix. I highly recommend putting on a glass screen protector after you get your screen repaired. I've actually dropped my phone and the glass screen protector will crack, but the actual screen comes out just fine. There are also some companies that offer lifetime warranties where you can get your glass screen protector replaced for free if it gets damaged.

    Definitely a temporary fix. If you see the screen start to have black spots growing or moving around, get your screen repaired asap. You do not want to risk losing your information

    Hi i would not reccommend this as a permanent solution but temporarely is okay. I dont know how it got broken but if there are many tiny pieces of glass i would suggest repairing it as soon as possible because it can get pretty dangerous
