The best screen protectors for the iPhone 14 Pro Max are designed to not only prevent any excess damage to your device upon impacts, but can also protect your expensive smartphone from unwanted fingerprints, bacteria, oils, sweat, plus daily scratches from keeping your phone in a bag or even your pocket.
A lot of folks think that screen protectors aren't needed anymore as flagship phones are built from tougher materials, but this couldn't be further from the truth. No smartphone is indestructible, and even the best rugged phones have their limitations when dropped from hefty heights or given to a toddler.
You'll want to keep your phone screen as new and gleaming as possible, not only for the purpose of reselling it when the time comes, but screen protectors offer peace of mind that if you ever drop your phone, there's an extra layer of safety between your device and an expensive screen repair.
Already purchased a screen protector? The next step is securing a reliable and sturdy phone case. Take a look at our guides to the best iPhone 14 Pro Max cases, as well as the best iPhone 14 Pro cases, not forgetting the best iPhone 14 Plus cases, and if you have the standard model - the best iPhone 14 cases.
How do I choose a screen protector?
We understand that the hunt for a durable yet reasonably priced screen protector can be daunting and time-consuming, but fear not. We're pretty much experts now when it comes to finding the best smartphone accessories available for the best camera phones, with options to suit all budgets from brands that you can trust.
Are you a bit of a germaphobe? A screen protector with antimicrobial coatings will help to prevent and eliminate surface bacteria from lurking on your phone screen. Whether you need a strong Tempered Glass screen protector to withstand hefty drops, or a blue-light-blocking cover to prevent eye strain, then this guide can help you find the perfect screen protector for a fair price.
If you're a photographer and smartphone shooter (which we assume you are - this is Digital Camera World after all) then you might want to pair your screen protector with a strong phone case with raised edges to protect your camera unit from any cracked lenses upon impact. Maybe even consider purchasing a separate camera lens protector for the iPhone 14 Pro Max too.

How we test
In all honesty, there's no real way to test a screen protector thoroughly enough without actually putting our own phones in danger. So for this reason, we base our recommendations on things like quality and materials used, ease of application, and most importantly the price range and value for money.
We weren't born yesterday, and we know that most manufacturers will exaggerate and upsell key features of screen protectors knowing that you'll never test them. For example, some products might be listed with 10ft drop protection, but we aren't about to find out for ourselves whether that's true.
With this in mind, we tend to take things with a pinch of salt when it comes to testing screen protectors, but vow to only recommend products to our readers that we would purchase ourselves, from brands that we're familiar with from having tested other products from their catalog and know are reliable and high quality.
