The transmission of visible light through glass and sapphire is both exceptional, but the problem of reflectivity persists. To reduce glare, manufacturers use a variety of techniques to scatter reflected light. Anti-reflective coating, or AR coating, is the most commonly used technique for displays. It’s based on a thin-film interference principle, which is also why soap bubbles produce bright striations under the sun.
Glare issues can be dealt with by using matte screen protectors. Currently, two options are available: matte finish and AR coating. You can consider both of these solutions during the purchase of your Apple tablet screen protector. Here’s a quick overview of how to choose the best matte screen protector for your specific situation.
Anti-Reflective Coating for Apple Tablet Screen Protectors
Incorporating AR coatings into tablet screen protectors. You can barely see the difference, and color and contrast appear nearly the same. In addition to the rubbing off, the coating will begin to scratch off over time, which will significantly reduce the anti-reflectiveness. Devices with AR coatings should be treated with care. In the case of an AR coated tablet screen protector, expect to get a replacement soon.
Matte Finish for Apple Tablet Screen Protectors
Another option is to create a textured surface on the screen (often called a matte finish), which reduces glare and scatters reflections. Early Apple displays were matte, but to the disappointment of many, they are no longer. The matte finish hides fingerprints and smudges better, and since it is not a coating, it cannot be scratched or rubbed off. There are, however, some disadvantages to this finish. Light waves hit the surface from different angles due to the texture, so you might notice tiny color speckles. Matte finishes are loved by some people, but are disliked by others – it’s a matter of personal taste.
