    If you don't use a screen protector will it scratch over time the more you use it? Like the usual wear and tear.

    Welcome to iMore.

    Yes it is a possibility that it will scratch over time depending on your individual use. Anytime anything gets up against the screen there is the chance it could get scratch. I use a screen protector for two reasons. One scratch & break protection. The other is that my screen protector is a privacy screen protector. Thanks!

    I've been using my 6s Plus since September 2015 without a screen protector, and have no scratches or nicks at all. It's all how you take care of it. I do use an Otterbox Commuter case to protect from falls.

    I have owned a 4 iPhones which I got brand new, with the 5S being the last, that didn't have a lot of scratches. But, after an accident, I had to buy a temporary second hand iPhone 6 and that one had a lot of miniscule scratches all over the screen. So when I got my current iPhone 7 Plus I had a screen protector placed.
    Right now I'm on my third screen protector in 6 months.
    All I wanna say is, the larger the screen the easier it is to get scratches on it.

    One of the first things I do when I get a new iPhone is get a screen protector I have scratched the screen with keys in pocket or whatever and once its scratched it scratched and it will bug you so yes I would be safe and install a screen protector .

    Yes, it will most likely scratch but most be so small that you can only see them if the light shines on the right way.

    My 6S got a permanent smudge on it barely a week after I bought it. It can only be seen under the right lighting so I never really ever see it.

    I have screen protectors on my 6S+ and 6S but never bothered for my 6S and probably won't for my SE either.
