Zagg, the producer of the popular InvisibleShield screen protectors, responds to the problems in conversation with Cult of Mac. According to the manufacturer, more complaints than usual have been received in the past three weeks. It is striking that this problem is only relatively recent, while the iPad Pro (2018) has already been available for a few months.
