  1. Remove the old protector from your iPad and gently clean it with isopropyl alcohol.
  2. Bring the screen protector as closer as you can to the screen by holding it along the corners.
  3. Line up the whole screen protector. I usually line up around the touch ID or the fingerprint sensor, then line up the cutouts at the top.
  4. After lining up, drop one end onto the iPad, making sure that it’s still kind of aligned, and then drop the other end. Then put your finger down the middle of your iPad and move it all the way to the top.

After applying the new protector, your device looks neat and new.
