Welcome to iMore! A little bit of firm pressure to remove air bubbles isn't going to damage your phone. Best of luck!

I would use even pressure if possible to minimize too much pressure in one spot. I would use something like the card included in non-glass screen protectors to even out the pressure. I would also suggest moving the bubbles from one side to the other or from top to bottom.

Good luck, let us know how you did.
