If you have a crack in your glass screen saver, then it’s done its job. He took the pieces so that the screen of your iPhone or iPad does not need. Once a tempered glass screen protector has a crack, it is exponentially less effective, you should replace it. Here’s how to replace yours so that your smartphone’s screen stays fully protected.
How to remove the glass film from the phone?
There are a few ways to remove the tempered glass screen protector and what you use will depend on how well the protector is connected to the screen. Before you begin, use a hair dryer on your screen for approximately 15 seconds. This should warm up slightly and release the sticker on the screen protector. Do not exaggerate in that part.
Before you pick up your toolkit and work on your smartphone, try removing the screen protector with your fingernail. Start by trying to lift the screen saver from each corner. Once it starts to rise, stop pulling just around the corner and move further along the guard when it starts peeling. This will help prevent it from falling apart before you can get it out completely. Pull slowly and evenly; otherwise you will have a jigsaw puzzle of tempered glass pieces to clean.
Try to use a toothpick to erect one of the corners. Be sure to point the pointed end toward the screen protector while you do this, not down toward the screen. Once you get a corner, pull with your fingers once more, pulling slowly and evenly. If you can, slip a credit card into the opening and slowly push it to raise the screen protector.
Try some duct tape. Wrap a piece of tape around two of your fingers with the adhesive side out.
Start in a corner and press the tape over it, rolling away from the corner slowly. Hopefully, the duct tape will adhere to the screen protector and you will be able to pull it up and out.
How to remove glass film from the phone to install the new one?
Hope it has been a long time since you had to install a tempered glass screen protector, so we will forgive you if you forgot how to do it. As with removal, there are some installation methods that differ based on brand and style. Either way, make sure your hands are clean so you do not leave any residue, dust or dirt on your smartphone screen. This can cause bubbles under the screen protector.
This method is for tempered glass screen protectors that did not come with a solution bottle. Wipe the screen of your phone with a cloth with alcohol if the protector came with one. Otherwise, use a lint-free microfiber cloth. Hold the screen protector and remove the film from the adhesive side. Carefully align the screen protector with the screen of your smartphone, making sure to align the Home button, the headset, and the holes on the camera. Slowly, place the screen protector on the screen, starting from one end and working carefully toward the other.
Use a credit card or any application tools that have been included with your protector to ensure that it continues evenly and without bubbles. Smooth the bubbles with a credit card or the installation card that came with the screensaver. Starting in the center, push the bubbles out toward the edges of the screen with short strokes. If you try to push for a long time, you will just spread the bubble under the screen saver. You can also use a microfiber cloth to do this. Remove the film from the top of the screen saver. This should reveal a completely clean screensaver.
This method is for tempered glass screen protectors that comes with a bottle of spray solution (usually alcohol) to aid in installation. Some people prefer to apply screen protectors this way, since it reduces static and helps prevent dust and hair from slipping under the screen protector. Clean the screen of your smartphone using the spray and a soft, lint-free cleaning cloth. Spray both the front and the back of the screen protector, being generous with the spray. This will prevent it from drying out during installation. Carefully place the screen protector on the screen of your smartphone or tablet.
Balance one end on the screen and slowly apply it from one end to the other using a credit card or the palm of your hand. Use the tool that comes with wet-mount tempered glass screens to squeeze the excess solution under the screen protector. Start at the center and push it gently toward the edges, making sure to hold the shield so it does not move around.
Let it dry for at least half an hour. If you are placing a case in your device, wait at least a few hours. This will prevent the screen saver from moving and allow it to fully adhere to your screen. Keep in mind that during installation, you may have to dampen the screen saver. It can be quite tedious to align everything correctly and you may have to reapply the spray a few times. Just be patient and careful.
Why remove the broken glass film?
Always remember that if there are any holes or cracks in the tempered glass screen protector, you should replace it, even if it is small. Glass has a habit of turning small fissures and holes into large defects. Glass shards may end up damaging your cell phone screen if the film is not replaced.
